Domain Registration Agreement


This Services Agreement ("Agreement") between you and Namesonic Internet Services Corp. (Namesonic) sets forth the terms and conditions of your use of the services set forth herein (collectively, the "Services"). You acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement, as well as any additional rules or policies that are or may be published by Namesonic from time to time. This Agreement as well as any additional rules and policies, together with all modifications thereto, constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and Namesonic concerning your use of the Services, and supersede and govern all prior proposals, agreements, or other communications.

AGREEMENT. In this Registration Agreement ("Agreement") "you" and "your" refers to the customer, "we", us" and "our" refer to Namesonic Internet Services Corp. and "Services" refers to the domain name registration provided by Namesonic Internet Services ("Namesonic"), the Registration Service Provider ("RSP"). This Agreement explains and outlines Namesonic's obligations to the customer, and explains the customer's obligations to Namesonic for the various Services.

SELECTION OF A DOMAIN NAME. You understand, to the best of your knowledge and belief, that neither the registration of the domain name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used infringes the legal rights of a third party. Also, the domain name is not being registered for any unlawful purpose.

FEES. As consideration for Namesonic providing domain name registration services to you, you agree to pay Namesonic, prior to the approval of the desired domain name registration, the amounts set forth in the Namesonic Price Schedule, as amended from time to time, for the initial registration of the domain name and any subsequent renewals. You agree that we reserve the right to increase our fees and you agree to be bound by any fee increase. Your application will not be registered until Namesonic receives actual payment of the registration fee, or reasonable assurance of payment of the registration fee from a third party, such reasonable assurance to be determined by Namesonic in its sole discretion. All fees must be prepaid and are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if the domain name registration is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of the registration term. In the event of a charge back by a credit card company or other payment provider authorized by Namesonic, the domain name registration shall be transferred to Namesonic as the paying entity for the registration. We may reinstate your domain name registration at its sole discretion upon its receipt of the registration or renewal fee and its then current reinstatement fee. The reinstatement fee is currently US$200. Namesonic will notify you when your renewal fees are due. If these fees remain unpaid when a second notice or reminder is issued, your registration will be cancelled. Payment must be made by credit card or other methods we indicate in the registration application or renewal form. We will renew your name for you provided your credit card or other billing information is available and up to date. If your billing information is not accurate and you wish to renew your domain name registration, we will contact you to update this information and charge accordingly.

TERM. You agree that the Registration Agreement will remain in full force during the length of the term of your Domain Name Registration. Should you choose to renew or otherwise lengthen the term of your Domain Name Registration, then the term of this Registration Agreement will be extended accordingly. This Agreement will remain in full force during the length of the term of your Domain Name Registration as selected, recorded, and paid for upon registration of the Domain Name. Should you transfer your domain name or should the domain name otherwise be transferred due to another Registrar, the terms and conditions of this contract shall cease and shall be replaced by the contractual terms in force for the purpose of registering domain names then in force between SLD holders and the new Registrar.

MODIFICATIONS TO AGREEMENT. You agree, during the period of this Agreement, that the RSP or we may: (1) revise the terms and conditions of this Agreement; and (2) change the services provided under this Agreement. Any such revision or change will be binding and effective immediately on posting of the revised Agreement or change to the service(s) on the RSP's web site, or on notification to you by e-mail or regular mail as per the Notices section of this agreement. You agree to review the RSP's web site, including the Agreement, periodically to be aware of any such revisions. If you do not agree with any revision to the Agreement, you may terminate this Agreement at any time by providing the RSP or us with notice by e-mail or regular mail as per the Notices section of this agreement. Notice of your termination will be effective on receipt and processing by us. You agree that, by continuing to use the Services following notice of any revision to this Agreement or change in service(s), you shall abide by any such revisions or changes. You further agree to abide by the ICANN Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy ("Dispute Policy") as amended from time to time. You agree that, by maintaining the reservation or registration of your domain name after modifications to the Dispute Policy become effective, you have agreed to these modifications. You acknowledge that if you do not agree to any such modifications, you may request that your domain name be deleted from the domain name database.

MODIFICATIONS TO YOUR ACCOUNT. In order to change any of your account information with the RSP, you must use your Login ID and Password that you selected when you opened your account with the RSP. Please safeguard your Login ID and Password from any unauthorized use. In no event will the RSP be liable for the unauthorized use or misuse of your Login ID or Password.

If the account manager, or the party who holds the Login ID and Password to the account, is unresponsive to modification requests made by Namesonic and the domain(s) administrative or registrant contact for a particular domain(s), Namesonic has the ability to make contact and DNS changes, as well as the ability to release the domain into another account at the request and approval of the administrative and/or registrant contact. Namesonic will take all reasonable measures to contact the account manager before changes are made, and before any changes are made, Namesonic must receive written authorization from the registrant and administrative contact and proof of ownership.

DISPUTE POLICY

You acknowledge that you have read, understood and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of ICANN's Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the "UDRP"), as amended from time to time, which is hereby incorporated and made a part of this Agreement by reference for all .com, .net, .org and other domain extensions provided, domain name registrations or renewals. (Click here for a current copy of the UDRP.)

CHANGES TO REGISTRATION AGREEMENT AND DISPUTE POLICY

You acknowledge and recognize that the domain name system and the practice of registering and administering domain names are continuously evolving, and acknowledge and agree that Namesonic may modify this Agreement and the Dispute Policy (as per changes made by the UDRP) as necessary from time to time to comply with its agreement with ICANN and any other agreements by which Namesonic is or will be bound, and to adjust to changing business circumstances. You agree that Namesonic reserves the right to withhold and/or change its existing and future services and the terms and conditions thereof at its discretion. You agree to be bound by any such changes unless you provide us with written notification to the contrary. Your continued use of the registered domain name constitutes acceptance of this Agreement and amendments. If at any time, you do not agree to such changes, you agree that your sole remedy is to request that your domain name registration be cancelled or transferred to a different domain name registrar.

ICANN POLICY. You agree that your registration of the domain name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to any ICANN-adopted policy, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure not inconsistent with an ICANN-adopted policy, (1) to correct mistakes by Registrar or the Registry in registering the name or (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name.

AGENCY. Should you intend to license the use of a domain name to a third party, you shall nonetheless be the domain holder of record and are therefore responsible for providing your own full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain. You shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the domain, unless you promptly disclose the identity of the licensee to the party providing you reasonable evidence of actionable harm. You also represent that you have provided notice of the terms and conditions in this Agreement to the third party and that the third party agrees to the terms of Disclosure and Use of Registration Information (sections 18 and 19 of this Agreement).

ANNOUNCEMENTS. We reserve the right to distribute information to you that is pertinent to the quality or operation of our services and those of our service partners. These announcements will be predominately informative in nature and may include notices describing changes, upgrades, new products or other information to add security or to enhance your identity on the Internet.

LIMITATION OF RSP LIABILITY. You agree that our entire liability, and your exclusive remedy, with respect to any Services(s) provided under this Agreement and any breach of this Agreement is solely limited to the amount you paid for such Service(s). We and our contractors shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages resulting from the use or inability to use any of the Services or for the cost of procurement of substitute services. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states, the RSP's and our liability is limited to the extent permitted by law. We and the RSP disclaim any and all loss or liability resulting from, but not limited to: 1. Loss or liability resulting from access delays or access interruptions; 2. Loss or liability resulting from data non-delivery or data mis-delivery; 3. Loss or liability resulting from acts of God; 4. Loss or liability resulting from the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password; 5. Loss or liability resulting from errors, omissions, or misstatements in any and all information or services(s) provided under this Agreement; 6. Loss or liability resulting from the interruption of your Service.

You agree that we and the RSP will not be liable for any loss of registration and use of your domain name, or for interruption of business, or any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind (including lost profits) regardless of the form of action whether in contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, even if we or the RSP have been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event shall our and the RSP's combined maximum liability exceed five hundred ($500.00) dollars.

INDEMNITY. You agree to release, indemnify, and hold, us, our contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors, and affiliates harmless from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including without limitation Namesonic, and the directors, officers, employees and agents of each of them, including attorney's fees, of third parties relating to or arising under this Agreement, the Services provided hereunder or your use of the Services, including without limitation infringement by you, or someone else using the Service with your computer, of any intellectual property or other proprietary right of any person or entity, or from the violation of any of our operating rules or policy relating to the service(s) provided. You also agree to release, indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy. When we are threatened with suit by a third party, we may seek written assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify us; your failure to provide those assurances may be considered by us to be a breach of your Agreement and may result in deactivation of your domain name.

TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP. The person named as registrant contact at the time the controlling user name and password are secured shall be the owner of the domain name. You agree that prior to transferring ownership of your domain name to another person (the Transferee") you shall require the Transferee to agree, in writing to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Your domain name will not be transferred until we receive such written assurances or other reasonable assurance that the Transferee has been bound by the contractual terms of this Agreement (such reasonable assurance as determined by us in our sole discretion) along with the applicable transfer fee. If the Transferee fails to be bound in a reasonable fashion (as determine by us in our sole discretion) to the terms and conditions in this Agreement, any such transfer will be null and void.

BREACH. You agree that failure to abide by any provision of this Agreement, any operating rule or policy or the Dispute Policy provided by us or the RSP, may be considered by us to be a material breach and that we or the RSP may provide a written notice, describing the breach, to you. If within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of such notice, you fail to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to us, that you have not breached your obligations under the Agreement, then we may delete the registration or reservation of your domain name. Any such breach by you shall not be deemed to be excused simply because we did not act earlier in response to that, or any other breach by you.

NO GUARANTY. You agree that, by registration or reservation of your chosen domain name, such registration or reservation does not confer immunity from objection to the registration, reservation, or use of the domain name.

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

You represent that, to the best of your knowledge and belief, that:

EXPIRATION AND RENEWAL OF SERVICE(S): You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to keep your own records and to maintain your own reminders regarding when your domain name registration or other Services are set to expire. As a convenience to you, and not as a binding commitment, we may notify you via an email message or via your account when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid, your Services will expire or be cancelled. Payment must be made by credit card or such other method as we may allow or require from time to time. If you select automatic renewal of the Service(s), we may attempt to renew the Service(s) a reasonable time before expiration, provided your credit card or other billing information is available and up to date. You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to keep your billing information up to date and that we are not required to, but that we may, contact you to update this information in the event that an attempted transaction is not processed successfully.

ACCOUNT CONTACT INFORMATION AND DOMAIN NAME WHOIS INFORMATION: As further consideration for the Service(s), you agree to provide certain current, complete and accurate information about you, both with respect to your account information and with respect to the WHOIS information for your domain name(s). You agree to maintain and update this information as needed to keep it current, complete and accurate. With respect to you, the administrative, technical, and billing contacts for your domain name registration(s) and other Service(s), you must submit the following: name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and where available, fax number. You agree that the type of information you are required to provide may change and you understand that, if you do not provide the newly required information, your registration or and/or other Service(s) may be suspended or terminated or may not be renewed. Not providing requested information may prevent you from obtaining all Service(s). You may provide information regarding the name-servers assigned to your domain name(s) and, if we are providing name-server services to you, the DNS settings for the domain name. If you do not provide complete name-server information, you agree that we may supply this information (and point your domain name to a website of our choosing) until such time as you elect to supply the name-server information.

YOUR OBLIGATIONS AND REPRESENTATIONS RELATING TO THE ACCOUNT AND WHOIS CONTACT INFORMATION: In the event that, in registering a domain name or obtaining other Service(s), you provide information about or on behalf of a third party, you represent that you have (a) provided notice to that third party of the disclosure and use of that party's information as set forth in this Agreement, and (b) that you have obtained the third party's express consent to the disclosure and use of that party's information as set forth in this Agreement. By registering a domain name or applying for other Service(s) you also represent that the statements in your application are true and you also represent that the domain name is not being registered or the Services being procured for any unlawful purpose. You acknowledge that providing inaccurate information or failing to update information promptly will constitute a material breach of this Agreement and will be sufficient basis for suspension or termination of Services to you. You further agree that your failure to respond for over ten (10) calendar days to inquiries by us concerning the accuracy of account and WHOIS contact information shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and will be sufficient basis for suspension or termination of Service(s) to you. As indicated elsewhere in this Agreement, you understand that it is important for you to regularly monitor email sent to the email address associated with your account and WHOIS contact information because, among other reasons, if a dispute arises regarding a domain name(s) or other Service(s), you may loose your rights to the domain name(s) or your right to receive the Service(s) if you do not respond appropriately to an email sent in conjunction therewith.

AGENTS AND LICENSES: You agree that, if you are registering a domain name for or on behalf of someone else, you represent that you have the authority to nonetheless bind that person as a principal to all terms and conditions provided herein. You agree that if you license the use of the domain name registered to you to a third party, you nonetheless remain the domain name holder of record, and remain responsible for all obligations under this Agreement, including but not limited to payment obligations, and providing (and updating, as necessary) both your own full contact information, and accurate technical, administrative, billing and zone contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain name and domain name registration.

AFTER EXPIRATION OF THE TERM OF A DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION: After expiration of the term of a domain name registration services and before deletion of the domain name in the applicable registry's database, you acknowledge that we may direct the domain name to name-servers and IP address(es) designated by us, including, without limitation, to no IP address or to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine that may display advertisements, and you acknowledge that we may either leave your WHOIS information intact or that we may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name so that you are no longer the listed registrant of the expired domain name.

After expiration of the term of domain name registration services, you acknowledge that certain registry administrators may provide procedures or grace periods during which expired domain name registrations may be renewed. You acknowledge that you assume all risks and all consequences if you wait until close to or after the end of a domain name registration term to attempt to renew the registration. You acknowledge that we, for any reason and in our sole discretion, may choose not to participate in a post-expiration renewal of a domain name and that we shall not be liable therefore. You acknowledge that post-expiration renewal or redemption processes, if any, involve additional fees which we may determine. You acknowledge and agree that expired domain name(s) may be made available to be registered or re-registered to any party at any time.

You agree that after expiration of the term of a domain name registration we may, for a period of 30 days, either i) remove the domain name from the zone of the top-level-domain (meaning that the domain name will no longer resolve), or ii) direct the domain name to name-servers and IP address(es) of website(s) designated by us, including, without limitation, to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine. You agree that either are functionally equivalent to ICANN's or a registry's redemption grace period, which would normally occur after deletion. If we exercise our rights under this provision, and if you do not transfer the domain name services to another registrar nor contact us to pay for and renew the domain name prior to the end of the 30 days, you agree that you have abandoned the domain name.

After this 30 day period, you agree that we may either (i) delete the domain name at any time thereafter or (ii) that we may pay the registry's registration free or otherwise allow it to continue to be registered with the WHOIS information previously provided by you and pointing to the name-server(s) and IP address(es) designated by us, and that we will not remove it from the TLD zone. In the latter event, the domain name will be designated as being in the extended redemption grace period ("ERGP"), and you will be allowed to assume, during the first 30 days of the then extant registration term, complete management of the domain name services, including the right to control the DNS information, provided that you pay a fee of $180 (US dollars). After the end of the 30-day period, if you do not exercise your rights under this provision, you agree that you have abandoned the domain name services, and relinquish all rights and use of the domain name services, and that you are no longer the registrant of the domain name, and that we may list ourselves or another party as the registrant of the domain name in the WHOIS information. If we exercise our rights under this provision and you do not wish to be listed as the registrant and you wish to forego your option under this provision to pay to renew the domain name registration services for the then-current registration term, you may notify us before the end of the 30-day period and request that we remove your information from the WHOIS record for the domain name, in which case we, or a third party we designate, will be listed as the registrant, and in which case you relinquish all rights and control over the domain name services, and in which case we may i) continue to point the domain name to IP address(es) designated by us, or ii) we may delete the domain name from the applicable registry's database.

Such written assurances may include, in our sole discretion, the posting of a performance bond(s) or other guarantees reasonably calculated to guarantee payment.

This indemnification is in addition to any indemnification required under the UDRP.

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES: YOU REPRESENT THAT, TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND BELIEF, NEITHER THE REGISTRATION OF A DOMAIN NAME NOR THE MANNER IN WHICH IT IS DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY USED NOR THE USE OF OTHER OF THE SERVICE(S) INFRINGES THE LEGAL RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY.

WE MAKE NO WARRANTY REGARDING ANY GOODS OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED THROUGH OUR E-MAIL SERVICE(S) OR ANY TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH OUR E-MAIL SERVICE(S). NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM US SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION FOR DISPUTES: Except as otherwise set forth in the UDRP or any similar ccTLD policy with respect to any dispute over a domain name registration this Agreement, your rights and obligations and all actions contemplated by this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of Canada and the Province of British Columbia, as if the Agreement was a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within the Province of British Columbia.
