2. Selection of a Domain Name

We do not check to see whether the domain name you select, or the use you make of the domain name, infringes legal rights of others. We urge you to investigate to see whether the domain name you select or its use infringes legal rights of others, and in particular we suggest you seek advice of competent counsel. You may wish to consider seeking one or more trademark registrations in connection with your domain name. You should be aware that there is the possibility we might be ordered by a court to cancel, modify, or transfer your domain name. You should be aware that if we are sued or threatened with lawsuit in connection with your domain name, we may turn to you to hold us harmless and indemnify us, pursuant to the indemnification provision below.

 

3. Fees and Payment

As consideration for the domain name registration services provided by Web & Cloud to you, you agree to pay Web & Cloud at the time of submitting your application for registration, all applicable initial registration fees and renewal fees in accordance with Web & Cloud’s fee schedule published on Web & Cloud’s website. All fees are non-refundable, in whole or in part. You will be notified when renewal fees are due, and it shall be your responsibility to ensure that such fees are paid. Should these fees go unpaid by the time specified in the renewal notice, your registration will be cancelled. You agree that Web & Cloud shall have no liability whatsoever with respect to any such cancellation.

 

4. After Expiration of The Term of Domain Name Registration

You agree that we may, but are not obligated to, allow you to renew your domain name registration services after the domain name expiration date has passed. You agree that after the expiration date of the domain name registration and before it is deleted or renewed, we may direct the domain name to an IP address designated by us, including, without limitation, to an IP address which hosts a parking, under construction or other temporary page that may include promotions and advertisements for, and links to, Web & Cloud’s Web site, Web & Cloud product and service offerings, third-party Web sites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines, and you agree that we may place our contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name.

For a period of approximately 14 days after expiration of the term of domain name registration services, you acknowledge that we may provide a procedure by which expired domain name registration services may be renewed. You acknowledge and agree that we may, but are not obligated to, offer this process, called the “renewal grace period.” You acknowledge that you assume all risks and all consequences if you wait until close to or after the expiration of the original term of domain name registration services to attempt to renew the domain name registration services. You acknowledge that we, for any reason and in our sole discretion, may choose not to offer a renewal grace period and that we shall not be liable therefore.

Should you not renew the domain name registration services during the renewal grace period, you agree that unless you notify us to the contrary we may, in our sole discretion, renew and transfer the domain name registration services to Web & Cloud or a third party on your behalf (such a transaction is hereinafter referred to as an “Expired Domain Transfer”), and your failure to so notify us after the domain name expiration date shall constitute your consent to such an Expired Domain Transfer.

You acknowledge and agree that the Expired Domain Transfer process may be facilitated through a single Expired Domain Transfer Customer, or through a brief auction involving multiple parties who are interested in the domain name. We cannot guarantee, and we make no representation or promise, that any Expired Domain Transfer will occur with respect to any particular domain name. You acknowledge that we do not have to pay you any of the proceeds, if any, we may earn as a result. You also agree that in the event your domain name services are terminated by us pursuant to this Agreement, we may transfer your domain name registration to Web & Cloud or a third party, without any liability to you or obligation to compensate you in connection therewith.

In the event that your domain name registration is deleted, you acknowledge that certain registry administrators may provide procedures by which deleted domain names may nonetheless be renewed. You acknowledge and agree that we may, but are not obligated to, participate in this process, typically called the “Redemption Grace Period” (“RGP”). You acknowledge that we, for any reason and in our sole discretion, may choose not to participate in the RGP process with respect to any or all of your domain names and that we shall not be liable therefore. The typical RGP fee is $120 plus any registration fees. You agree that we are not obliged to contact you to alert you that the domain name registration services are being discontinued.

 

5. Charge Backs

You agree that you will lose all rights upon the selected domain name in case of a charge back by your credit card company, credit card fraud or any other reserved payment. Web & Cloud will decide at his sole discretion whether to hold the name in his own portfolio or to release it for use by others.

 

6. Dispute Policy

You agree to be bound by the current Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (“Dispute Policy”) which is incorporated into this Agreement by reference and made a part of this Agreement. Any disputes regarding the right to use your domain name will be subject to the Dispute Policy provisions in effect at the time your domain name registration is disputed by a third party, in the event such a dispute arises. You also agree that, in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold Web & Cloud harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy. Web & Cloud may modify the Dispute Policy with the permission of ICANN at any time. Your continued registration of your domain name after modification to the Dispute Policy becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of those modifications. If you do not agree to such a modification, you may request that your domain name be deleted.

Additionally, you acknowledge that ICANN may impose guidelines, limits and/or requirements that relate to the amount and type of information that Web & Cloud may or must make available to the public or to private entities.
