11. Registration and Renewals
We do not warrant or guarantee that the domain name applied for will be registered or renewed in the customers name or is capable of being registered or renewed by the customer. Domains are registered on a first come first served basis and therefore any transaction by the customer should only be treated as an application for registration or renewal. A successful transaction does not represent confirmation that the concerned domain has been acquired or renewed by the customer. In the unlikely event of an application failing, a full refund will be given. Accordingly customer should take no action in respect of the requested domain name(s) until they have been notified that their requested domain name has been registered or renewed by the registrar.
The registration of the domain name and its ongoing use is subject to the relevant naming authority's terms and conditions of use http://www.nominet.org.uk/nominet-terms.html and you the customer are responsible for ensuring that you are aware of those terms and conditions and can and do comply with them. You the customer irrevocably waive any claims you may have against the registrar in respect of the decision of a naming authority to refuse to register a domain name and, without limitation agree that the administration charge paid by you to us shall be non-refundable in any event.
The registrar accepts no responsibility in respect of the use of a domain name by the customer and any dispute between the customer and any other individual or organisation regarding a domain name must be resolved between the parties concerned and we will take no part in any such dispute. The registrar reserves the right, on our becoming aware of such a dispute, at our sole discretion and without giving any reason, to either suspend or cancel the domain name, and/or to make appropriate representations to the relevant naming authority.
You the customer warrant and undertake that to the best of your knowledge and belief neither the registration of the domain name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used by you or and any licensee directly or indirectly infringes the legal rights of a third party.
You the customer should ensure that you are aware of the expiration date of any domain owned by yourself. We will endeavour to notify you of any renewal dates through our registrar, but do not guarantee that renewal notices will get to you. It is ultimately the customers responsibility to ensure that the renewal of their domain takes place on time. Knightmaster accepts no responsibility for any domain not being renewed on time.
You may be approached to renew your domain through other registrars. If the event of you renewing your domain through any registrar other than us, you will no longer be entitled to use our administration or nameservers which may result in loss of services attached to your domain. In order to resume use of administration or nameservers there is a fee of £29 + vat, plus any further annual charges such as forwarding @ £15 + vat.
Once the Domain Name and the customers details have been entered in the Register of Domain Names as a full registration no refund of fees will be payable by the registrar.
The registrar does not accept any responsibility for any Domain Name that is registered in error by the customer, likewise any domain that is misspelt by the customer upon request as a full registration. No refund of fees will be payable by the registrar under these circumstances.
Payment and Terms
The customer agrees to pay the current rate for each domain registered by the customer. The customer acknowledges that domains are not reserved or registered until payment is received, and that all domain registration fees are non-refundable. The initial period of this agreement is 1 or 2 years, depending on the extension requested and will be renewed yearly for TLD's or biannually for .UK's upon payment of the then-current registration fee. The customer will be given 30 days notice prior to expiration of Domain registration in which to submit payment. If Domain registration fees are not paid within the 30 days prior to registration expiration, the Domain will be subject to deactivation and/or termination by the Registry Administrator. In the case of a domain name being deactivated an activation charge will be levied. The rate for activation is £29 +vat for .uk's.
The person or organisation listed as the organisational contact at the commencement of this agreement will be considered the "owner" of the domain name. To transfer ownership of the Domain to another party, the Customer must pay all outstanding registration fees, and submit a written letter to registrar that describes their intent to relinquish ownership of the Domain to another party. The new Domain owner must submit a written letter to registrar that indicates their acceptance of the terms of this agreement.
In the event that payment for the Domain is revoked (for example, due to fraudulent credit card use or a bounced/cancelled cheque), the Domain will be immediately deactivated, and ownership of the Domain will be immediately transferred to registrar without prior notice to customer. A £50 penalty will be levied, which must be paid in full by before Domain ownership is returned to customer. The choice to accept payment and reactivate the Domain will be left at the sole discretion of the registrar.
Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy
The customer agrees to be bound to Registrar's adopted policies.
