3. Promotion of Our Affiliate Relationship Use of Links. If you qualify and agree to participate as an Affiliate, we will make a variety of graphic and textual links available to you (each referred to herein as a "Link" or collectively, as the "Links").

ResellerClub may modify the Links from time to time in its sole discretion.

All Affiliate Sites shall display the Links prominently in relevant sections of their website. Furthermore, you agree not to use cookie stuffing techniques that set the affiliate tracking cookie without the Referred Customer's knowledge (e.g. iframe). Any information with respect to ResellerClub that is going to be displayed on the Affiliate Site must be preapproved by ResellerClub in writing. b. Disclaimer. EXCEPT AS PERMITTED HEREIN, YOU SHALL NOT AND ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO (i) USE THE ResellerClub TRADEMARK, NAME OR ANY OF OUR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE LINKS, AND THE LICENSED MATERIALS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “ResellerClub IP”) (OR ANY VARIATIONS OR MISSPELLINGS THEREOF OR OTHER TERM OR TERMS CONFUSINGLY SIMILAR TO ANY OF THE FOREGOING) WITHOUT ResellerClub’S EXPRESS PRIOR WRITTEN PERMISSION; (ii) USE ResellerClub IP IN A DOMAIN OR WEBSITE NAME, IN ANY BIDS FOR KEYWORDS OR GOOGLE ADWORDS (OR SIMILAR PROGRAMS AT OTHER SEARCH ENGINES), IN ANY SEARCH ENGINE ADVERTISING (PAID OR OTHERWISE), IN ANY METATAGS, GOOGLE ADWORDS (OR SIMILAR PROGRAMS AT OTHER SEARCH ENGINES), KEY WORDS, ADVERTISING, SEARCH TERMS, CODE, OR OTHERWISE; (iii) ACT IN ANY WAY THAT CAUSES OR CREATES OR COULD CAUSE OR CREATE ANY "INITIAL INTEREST CONFUSION" OVER THE USE OF ResellerClub IP ON THE INTERNET OR IN ANY SEARCH ENGINE ADVERTISING.

Each Link connecting users of the Affiliate Site to the pertinent area of the ResellerClub website will in no way alter the look, feel, or functionality of the ResellerClub website. Any violations of the terms surrounding links, coupons, refunds, credits or discounts shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement, and may result in your termination from the Affiliate Program or the withholding of Commission Fees.

4. FTC Endorsement Compliance It is the intent of ResellerClub to treat all of our customers fairly. Accordingly, we require all ResellerClub Affiliates to comply with applicable laws, regulations and guidelines concerning advertising and marketing, including without limitation, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Endorsement Guides, which require that material connections between advertisers and endorsers be disclosed. This means that all Affiliate Sites (e.g. directories, review/rating websites, blogs, and other websites) and any email or collateral that provide an endorsement or assessment of ResellerClub’s Products and Services must prominently disclose the fact that you receive compensation for Referred Customers. For more information and suggestions about how to comply with these guidelines, please visit our page entitled "Affiliate Disclosure Requirements and Examples." Please note that this page is only intended to provide guidance. It does not purport to provide legal advice and it does not guarantee that you'll be in compliance with FTC regulations should you follow the suggestions presented. You are advised to seek and obtain your own legal advice on how these rules apply to your website or other promotional activities for which you receive compensation. ResellerClub reserves the right to withhold Commission Fees and cancel the affiliate relationship with you should we determine, at our sole discretion, that you are not in compliance with the previously mentioned guide or other FTC regulations or guides that we deem relevant.

5. Order Processing ResellerClub will process orders placed by Referred Customers who follow the Links from an Affiliate Site to ResellerClub. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to reject orders that do not comply with certain requirements that we may establish from time to time. All aspects of order processing and fulfillment, including ResellerClub’s services, cancellation, processing, refunds and payment processing will be our responsibility. We will track the Qualified Purchases generated by your Affiliate Site and will make this information available to you through our website. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and commission accrual, you must ensure that the Links between your website and our website are properly formatted.

6. Commission Determination; Qualified Purchases Commissions will be calculated based on the commission rates stated on the ResellerClub website for each Qualified Purchase (as defined herein) subject to commission accruing pursuant to Section 7 below. A “Qualified Purchase” does NOT include the following: A purchase by a Referred Customer that has transferred from any ResellerClub partners or subsidiaries. A purchase by a Referred Customer who is also associated with any ResellerClub reseller, referral, or other program. A purchase by a Referred Customer that is not up to date on its payments or is subject to a refund, referral, or other program. A purchase that was completed prior to the Affiliate joining the Affiliate Program or was not tracked properly through an Affiliate Link. A purchase by a Referred Customer that has not been in good standing for a period of at least thirty (30) days or is in violation of ResellerClub’s Terms of Service, Acceptable Use Policy, or other applicable policies at the time the Commission Fees accrue. A purchase that ResellerClub suspects, in its sole discretion, is the result of fraud, which shall include but is not limited to, the use of software that generates real and fictitious information, multiple accounts from the same customer, or the referral of accounts that do not comply with this Agreement. A purchase referred by an Affiliate that has an excessive cancellation rate as determined in ResellerClub’s sole discretion. A purchase by a Referred Customer if the Referred Customer was offered or received coupons, refunds, credits or discounts from the Affiliate. A purchase by a Referred Customer if the Affiliate or Referred Customer is in or is promoting a business-opportunity program, as determined by us in our sole discretion. A purchase by a Referred Customer who received a popup with a discounted offer, while leaving ResellerClub’s website during their purchase. A purchase by a Referred Customer engaging in "Domain Speculation," which is determined by the identification of two (2) web hosting accounts with the same Referred Customer's name, email address, or other identifying characteristic as determined by ResellerClub and/or the identification of two (2) or more web hosting accounts that have no content on their websites or have similar content, templates or formatting, as determined by ResellerClub, in our sole discretion. b. ResellerClub reserves the right to withhold payment of initial Commissions Fees to Affiliates who are new to the Affiliate Program, or who have commissions that are potentially fraudulent as determined by ResellerClub in its sole discretion, to determine the legitimacy and cancellation rates of Referred Customers. c. ResellerClub reserves the right to suspend the payment of Commission Fees at any time and indefinitely, if it suspects fraud or other improper activity or a potential breach of any of the terms of this Agreement by the Affiliate or a Referred Customer. ResellerClub reserves the right to deduct from Affiliate's current and future Commission Fees any and all Commission Fees corresponding to any fraudulent, questionable, and cancelled purchases. If no subsequent Commission Fee is due and owing, ResellerClub will send Affiliate a bill for the balance of such refunded purchase upon termination of the program or termination of the Referred Customer.. d. ResellerClub reserves the right to immediately cancel or withhold for later review any Commission Fee that fails to meet the criteria of a “Qualified Purchase.” Affiliate is responsible for monitoring the payment, denial, and withholding of Commission Fees; ResellerClub is not obligated to actively notify Affiliates of the status of Commission Fees. If Affiliate has a question about a Commission Fee that has been cancelled or withheld, Affiliate has thirty (30) days from the day the payment would have been due to contact ResellerClub to request that the Commission Fee be paid. Any changes to decisions about cancelled or withheld Commission Fees are strictly made in ResellerClub’s sole discretion. e. Commissions for any Referred Customer who is associated with any ResellerClub reseller, referral or other program may not be considered a Qualified Purchase. In other words, you may not receive double commissions or compensation. f. In the event that the Referred Customers that are referred to ResellerClub by an Affiliate are determined to have an excessive cancellation rate, as determined by ResellerClub in its sole discretion, ResellerClub reserves the right to withhold or decline pending and future Commission Fees to such Affiliate. g. Any attempt by an Affiliate to manipulate, falsify or inflate Referred Customers, Qualified Purchases, or Commission Fees to intentionally defraud ResellerClub or any violation of the terms of this Agreement constitutes immediate grounds for ResellerClub to terminate the Affiliates participation in the Affiliate Program and will result in the forfeiture of any Commission Fees due to the Affiliate.

7. Accrual of Commissions Commissions will accrue and only become payable once you (i) provide all relevant tax and address documentation pursuant to Section 8 below and (ii) reach the Commission Threshold based on the commission rates stated on the ResellerClub website, solely as applied to Qualified Purchases which occurred within ninety (90) days of the end of the calendar month in which the first of such Qualified Purchases occurred. For example, if you provide sign-ups which result in one Qualified Purchase on January 1st and a second sign-up which leads to a Qualified Purchase on August 10th, and you provide all necessary tax documentation on August 10th, no commission would accrue because the second Qualified Purchase occurred more than one hundred and eighty (180) days after the end of January when the first Qualified Purchase occurred. However, if you subsequently provide a sign up which leads to another Qualified Purchase on September 5th of the same year, then a commission of $100 would accrue on the latter two Qualified Purchases (i.e., the Qualified Purchases from August and September of the same year). All Qualified Purchases still eligible to result in commissions under this Section 7 must remain active and in good standing pursuant to the terms of this Agreement in order to remain eligible for accrual of a commission. Once a commission has accrued under this Section 7, the amount of such commission (the “Commission Fee”) shall be due and payable to you under the terms of Section 7. ResellerClub reserves the right to change the Commission Threshold by amending this Agreement and will notify you for any such amendment pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

8. Commission Payments Subject to the terms of this Agreement and the accrual of commissions as set forth in Section 7 above, commissions will be calculated according to the specified percentage or dollar amount set forth in the commission report in your Affiliate Console for each Qualified Purchase that accrues during the period for which such commission fee is being calculated. b. Commission Fees will be processed approximately fifteen (15) to thirty (30) days after the end of the month or other period in which they accrue. ResellerClub will only compensate you for Qualified Purchases made in accordance with this Agreement. c. Commission Fees shall be paid based on the current information in your Affiliate profile. You are required to notify us promptly of any change in your address by updating your profile information in the Affiliate console. You are responsible for informing ResellerClub of your desired payment form/type. You can update or change your desired payment method at any time by updating your affiliate profile located in the affiliate console. Any changes to your desired payment method may take up to two payout cycles to take effect. d. You may choose to receive Commission Fees through [PayPal or SWIFT wire transfers]. Please refer to PayPal's policy to ensure you are eligible to receive payment if you reside outside of the United States https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_display-approved-signup-countries-outside. ResellerClub is not responsible for paying any third-party fees charged by [PayPal or SWIFT] in order for you to receive Affiliate Commission Fees. e. [PayPal payments and SWIFT Wire Transfers] will only be reissued within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the original issue date in the case of an incorrect PayPal address or refusal from PayPal to accept a payment. f. ResellerClub, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to modify the available commission payment methods or payment schedule at any time. Such changes shall take effect when posted. g. Disputes: Affiliate has access to ResellerClub's real-time Affiliate Program statistics and agrees to file any disputes within forty-five (45) days after the end of the month in which the sale or event that is disputed occurred. Disputes filed after forty-five (45) days of the date on which the disputed sale or event occurred will not be accepted by ResellerClub and Affiliate forfeits forever any rights to a potential claim. h. It is solely your responsibility to provide ResellerClub with accurate tax and payment information that is necessary to issue a Commission Fee to you. If ResellerClub does not receive the necessary tax or payment information within ninety (90) days of a Qualified Purchase which would otherwise trigger Commission Fees, the applicable commissions shall not accrue and no Commission Fees will be owed with respect to such Qualified Purchase. i. Each Affiliate is required to submit a W8/W9 tax form before any Commission Fees shall accrue. You are responsible for the payment of all taxes related to the commissions you receive under this Agreement. In compliance with U.S. tax laws, ResellerClub will issue a Form 1099 to Affiliates whose earnings meet or exceed the applicable threshold. j. Any address change must be made in the Affiliate profile in the affiliate console at least fifteen (15) business days prior to the end of the calendar month in order for Commission Fees for that month to be processed.

9. Reports of Qualified Purchases You may log into your affiliate console to review your click through and potential Qualified Purchases statistics on a daily basis. The potential Qualified Purchases shown in this report have not been reviewed to confirm they meet all criteria for Qualified Purchases. As such, Commission Fees may not be issued for all Referred Customers that appear in the affiliate console.

10. Obligations Regarding Your Affiliate Site a. You are solely responsible for the development, operation, and maintenance of your Affiliate Site and for all materials that appear on your Affiliate Site. Such responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the technical operation of your Affiliate Site and all related equipment; creating and posting product reviews, descriptions, and references on your Affiliate Site and linking those descriptions to our website; the accuracy of materials posted on your Affiliate Site (including, but not limited to, all materials related to ResellerClub Products and Services); ensuring that materials posted on your Affiliate Site do not violate or infringe upon the rights of any third party and are not libelous or otherwise illegal. We disclaim all liability and responsibility for such matters. b. We have the right in our sole discretion to monitor signups through your Affiliate Site from time to time to determine if you are in compliance with the terms of this Agreement. If you are not in compliance we may terminate your participation in the Affiliate Program effective immediately.

11. ResellerClub Responsibilities We will provide all of the information necessary for you to make Links from your Affiliate Site to our site. ResellerClub will be solely responsible for order processing (including payment processing, cancellations, and refunds) for orders for ResellerClub Products and Services placed by a Referred Customer following a Link from your Affiliate Site, for tracking the volume and amount of Qualified Purchases generated by your Affiliate Site, and for providing information to Affiliates regarding Qualified Purchase statistics. ResellerClub will be solely responsible for all order processing, including but not limited to payment processing, cancellations, refunds and related ResellerClub service.

12. Policies and Pricing Referred Customers who buy ResellerClub Products and Services through our affiliate network are deemed to be ResellerClub Customers. ResellerClub’s Terms and Conditions, rules, policies, and operating procedures will apply to such customers. We may change our policies, pricing, and operating procedures at any time. For example, ResellerClub determines the prices to be charged for ResellerClub Products and Services sold through the affiliate network in accordance with our own pricing policies. Prices and availability of ResellerClub Products and Services may vary from time to time, from affiliate to affiliate, and from region to region. Because price changes may affect products that you have listed on your Affiliate Site, you may or may not be able to include price information in your product descriptions. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information on our website, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular ResellerClub Product or Service.

13. E-mails and Publicity You shall not create, publish, transmit or distribute, under any circumstances, any bulk email messages (also known as "SPAM") without prior written consent from ResellerClub, to be granted or denied in ResellerClub’s sole discretion, in each instance. Additionally, you may only send emails containing a ResellerClub affiliate link and or a message regarding ResellerClub or ResellerClub's Affiliate Program to people who have previously consented to receiving such communications from you. Your failure to abide by this Section 13, the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, our Anti-Spam Policy, and all applicable laws relating to email communications, in any manner, will be deemed a material breach of this Agreement by you and will result in the forfeiture by you of any and all rights you may have to any commissions and the termination of your participation in the Affiliate Program. Further, if your account has excessive clicks in a very short period of time as determined by ResellerClub in its sole discretion, the Affiliate relationship may be terminated.

14. Licenses and Use of ResellerClub Logos and Trademarks. a. Subject to the limitations set forth in Section 2 above and otherwise in this Agreement, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to (i) access our website through the Links solely in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and (ii) solely in connection with such Links, to use the ResellerClub trademark and logo and similar identifying material provided by us (collectively, the "Licensed Materials"), for the sole purpose of selling ResellerClub Products and Services on your Affiliate Site and as approved in advance by us. You may not alter, modify, or change the Licensed Materials in any way. You are only entitled to use the Licensed Materials while you are an Affiliate in good standing and in compliance with all of the terms of this Agreement. b. You shall not use the Licensed Materials for any purposes other than selling ResellerClub Products and Services, without first submitting a sample to us and obtaining the express prior written consent of ResellerClub in each instance. You shall not use the Licensed Materials in any manner that is disparaging or that otherwise portrays ResellerClub, any hosted member of ResellerClub or any ResellerClub employee or representative in a negative light. We reserve all of our rights in the Licensed Materials and your license to use such material is limited to the manner described herein.

    1. If you purchased domain privacy services (“Domain Privacy”), you agree that your Registration Information will be replaced in any public WHOIS search with information provided by the Company as determined in its sole discretion (the “Private WHOIS Contact Information”).

Although the Private WHOIS Contact Information will appear in any public WHOIS search result, you are solely responsible for resolving any and all monetary, creditor, or other claims that arise in connection with a legal or other dispute involving your domain name registration. Use of the Domain Privacy service in no way alleviates your obligation to provide valid and accurate Registration Information and to update and correct such information pursuant to the terms of this Registration Agreement.
    3. The Domain Privacy service is NOT a general mail forwarding service. You agree that you will not provide any third party with the Private WHOIS Contact Information for the purpose of having such third party transmit communications to you.

    6. Failure to renew the Domain Privacy service while your domain name registration is still valid will result in the Domain Privacy being suspended, terminated or cancelled and your Registration Information will be displayed in any public WHOIS search. Domain Privacy renewals after initial purchase will be at the standard list price, which is available by logging in to your account.
    7. The Company expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without any liability to you whatsoever, to suspend or cancel your use of the Service and/or reveal the Registration Information in any public WHOIS search or to any third party at any time without notice to you:

Pursuant to paragraph 3.7.7.3 of ICANN’s Registrar Accreditation Agreement (“RAA”), you agree that if you license use of a Registered Name (as that term is defined in the RAA) to a third party, you are nonetheless the Registered Name Holder of record (as that term is defined in the RAA) and are responsible for providing the 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 Registered Name. A Registered Name Holder licensing use of a Registered Name according to this provision shall accept liability for any harm caused by wrongful use of the Registered Name, unless the Registered Name Holder discloses the current contact information provided by the licensee and the identity of the licensee within seven (7) days to a party that provides the Registered Name Holder reasonable evidence of actionable harm.
  2. Domain Parking
    1. Upon registration, the domain will be automatically placed on name servers provided by the Company, and Internet users that type in the domain will be redirected to a “coming soon” page (collectively, “parking a domain” or a “parked domain”). There is no charge for parking a domain. You hereby consent to and authorize the Company’s placement of a “coming soon” page, and its associated contents, on your parked domain. You may change the name server configuration (or “un-park” the domain) after the registration is complete. If you need to register name servers using the domains that you are currently registering, the names will initially be parked with the Company until you modify the name servers after the domain registration is complete, using your account manager.
    2. In the event your domain registration expires, your registration is no longer valid. If you are able to renew the domain name, you may update the domain to its original settings. After expiration, but prior to renewal, the domain may be pointed to an “expired” page (collectively, “parking a domain” or a “parked domain”). There is no charge for the parked domain. By not renewing the domain, the Company may place an “expired” page, and its associated contents, on the parked domain. You may change the name server configuration (or “un-park” the domain) after the renewal is complete. If you need to register name servers using the domains that you are currently renewing, the names will initially be parked with the Company until you modify the name servers after the domain renewal is complete, using your account manager.
    3. The “coming soon” and/or “expired” pages may contain advertisements and other materials selected by the Company, in the Company’s sole discretion. This may include, but is not limited to third-party websites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines. The Company reserves the right to collect and retain all revenue obtained from such advertising and other materials.
    4. DNS Wildcard. In the event you utilize the Company’s DNS management services and fail to configure a wildcard DNS for your domain, the Company may insert wildcard DNS records to resolve subdomains of your domain that would not otherwise resolve. The Company may point those subdomains to a web page that may contain advertisements and other materials selected by the Company in the Company’s sole discretion. This may include, but is not limited to, third-party websites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines.
  3. Registration Renewal
    1. Renewal obligations. You are solely responsible for ensuring that any and all domains and additional services are renewed prior to their expiration, should you so desire their renewal. You may renew your domain at any time before the expiration date. the Company shall have no liability to you or any third party in connection with the renewal, including, but not limited to, any failure or errors in renewing the services.
    2. You may be notified at the Company’s sole discretion when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid within the time specified in a notice or reminder regarding renewal, your registration will be cancelled. Payment must be made by such other method as we indicate in the renewal form. If your billing information is not accurate, you are solely responsible for the failure to renew.
    3. Autorenewal. You agree that if you paid for any services provided hereunder by credit card or other payment service (such as PayPal), you hereby authorize but do NOT obligate, the Company to automatically charge your credit card or payment service account and renew the applicable service(s) on or before their renewal date using the credit card or other acceptable payment information you have provided to the Company, unless you notify the Company that you do not wish to participate in the Company’s automatic renewal process. The Company must receive notification of your intent to not renew (opt-out) no later than sixteen (16) days prior to the renewal date. In the absence of such notification from you, the Company will automatically renew, for a period of one (1) or two (2) years, as set forth by the applicable registry depending on the TLD or ccTLD of your domain name, any domain that is up for renewal and will charge the credit card or payment service account you have on file with the Company, at the Company’s then current rates. You are solely responsible for the credit card or other payment information you provide to the Company and must promptly inform the Company of any changes thereto (e.g., change of expiration date or account number). If the credit card or payment service account has expired or is otherwise invalid, you are solely responsible for a failure to renew and the Company shall not be liable for your failure.
    4. Expired domain names. You agree that we may place our contact information in the WHOIS output for any expired domain name, as the failure to renew results in the immediate cancellation of registration and loss of all rights to the domain name. Should you choose not to renew your domain name, you agree that we may, in our sole discretion, renew and transfer the domain name to a third party on your behalf as an Expired Domain Transfer (“ED Transfer”).
    5. New customers through domain auction or brokerage partners and/or ED Transfers. If you are registering a domain name that was registered with, and not yet deleted by, the Company at the time of your purchase, you acknowledge and agree that the term of your registration will be for a period of one year from the original expiration date for the domain name immediately prior to your purchase, as the registration is the result of an ED Transfer (defined above). You will not be compensated for the inability to use the domain from the time it was expired until the time you are able to use the domain in your account. NOTE: You may not transfer your domain name to another Registrar for sixty (60) days from the date of any previous transfer.
  4. Domain Dispute Resolution Policy

You agree to be bound by the appropriate domain dispute resolution policy (“Dispute Policy”) applicable to the domain that you have selected, including the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, which can be found here. The Dispute Policy has been developed by ICANN and/or the specific Registration Administrator(s) and is incorporated by reference in this Registration Agreement. Certain disputes are subject to the applicable Dispute Policy. In the event such dispute arises, you agree that you will be subject to the provisions specified in the applicable Dispute Policy in effect at the time your domain registration is disputed by a third party. You further agree that, in the event a domain dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold the Company harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the applicable Dispute Policy. The Dispute Policy may be modified at any time by ICANN or the applicable Registry Administrator, and your continued use of the domain registered to you after any such Dispute Policy modification shall constitute your acceptance of the modified Dispute Policy and this Registration Agreement. If you do not agree to any of such changes, you may request that your domain registration be cancelled or transferred to a different domain registrar. For the adjudication of disputes concerning or arising from use of the second level domain (“SLD”) name, the SLD holder shall submit, without prejudice to other potentially applicable jurisdictions, to the jurisdiction of the courts (1) of the SLD holder’s domicile and (2) where registrar is located. In addition, you agree to the rules of ICANN’s Uniform Rapid Suspension (“URS”) and to submit to any proceedings commenced pursuant to the URS, if applicable.

  1. Change of Registrant Of Domains
    1. Change of Registrant. Effective December 1, 2016, for all gTLDs, any material changes to a domain name registrant’s name, company, email address, or to the administrative contact email address (if there is no registrant email address) are subject to ICANN’s Transfer Policy (available at https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/transfer-policy-2016-06-01-en).
    2. We are required to deny a change of registrant for any of the following reasons:
      • the domain name registration agreement has expired and the registrant no longer has the right to renew the domain name or to transfer the domain name to another registrar;
      • the change of registrant was not properly authorized by the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant; or
      • the domain name is subject to a domain name dispute proceeding, including, but not limited to, the following:
      • Unless a change of registrant is otherwise prohibited, the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant, or their Designated Agents, must confirm the change of registrant within 60 days of the request.

    3. Designated Agent. You hereby explicitly authorize us to act as “Designated Agent” to approve a change of registrant on behalf of the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant, consistent with and pursuant to the requirements of ICANN’s Transfer Policy.
    4. Transfer of registration to another registrant. The entity or person named as the “registrant” at the time the controlling user name and password are secured shall be the registrant of the domain. You agree that prior to the effectiveness of any transfer of ownership of your domain to another entity, the Company reserves the right to enforce any amount published for the transfer of ownership of a domain. You further agree that, as a condition of any such transfer of ownership of the domain, the party to which you seek to transfer your domain shall agree in writing (electronic acceptance is acceptable) to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Registration Agreement. Your domain will not be transferred until we receive such written assurances (or reasonable assurance as determined by the Company in its sole discretion) and actual payment of the transfer fee, if any is imposed. You acknowledge and agree that if you attempt to transfer your domain registration without paying the Company the amount published for the transfer of ownership of a domain, or if the entity to which you seek to transfer your domain fails to agree in writing to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Registration Agreement, any such transfer will be null and void, and will result in your domain registration being revoked without a refund of any charges you have incurred in attempting to register or transfer that domain.
    5. When changing the name of registrant within the Company, you agree that at the Company’s discretion, the domain name may be changed back to the registrant listed immediately prior to the change upon written (email is acceptable) request within five (5) days (or such reasonable time as determined at the Company’s discretion) by registrant that was listed immediately prior to change or in the event of suspected fraud in connection with the change of the registrant name as determined by the Company in its sole discretion.
    6. Transfer of registration to or from another registrar. When transferring a domain name into the Company as the new registrar of record and simultaneously changing the name of registrant or subsequently changing the name of registrant, you agree that the domain name may be re-transferred back to the losing registrar upon written (email is acceptable) request by registrant that was listed immediately prior to transfer or upon request by losing registrar or in the event of suspected fraud in connection with the transfer as determined by the Company in its sole discretion. At the time of transfer into the Company, you must complete all required information requested through the online transfer application, i.e., contact information, nameserver information, etc. the Company may elect to accept or reject your domain name transfer application for any reason at its sole discretion. You are not entitled to any refund in relation to the domain name transferred to another registrar.
    7. RESTRICTIONS ON REGISTRAR TRANSFERS. For generic top-level domains governed by ICANN, you agree that you may not transfer your domain registration to another domain registrar during the first sixty (60) days from the effective date of your: (1) initial domain registration or (2) completion of a domain transfer into the Company. If you choose to utilize our transfer lock service, you agree to provide written authorization (electronic acceptance is acceptable) to the Company for the transfer of the domain to another registrar and agree to pay any and all fees that may be charged by the Company to effect the transfer. You agree your request to transfer your domain to another registrar may be denied pursuant to the Transfer Policy (available here).
    8. For country-code top-level domains, as established by each registry, you agree that you may not transfer a domain to another registrar during the first sixty (60) days of the initial registration or after expiration of the domain. You agree your request to transfer your domain to another registrar may be denied pursuant to the Transfer Policy (available here).
  2. Agents and Licensing

The name listed as registrant of the domain or the appropriate officer of a listed Organization (at the Company’s discretion) may individually choose to move the domain into another account for full access to the domain, irrespective of wishes of agent/account owner/other listed contacts on that particular domain (e.g. admin, billing). Further, you agree that if you license the use of the domain registered to you to a third party, you nonetheless remain the domain holder of record, and remain responsible for strict compliance with this Registration Agreement, including but not limited to payment obligations, and providing (and updating, as necessary) accurate Registration Information and Additional Registration Information.

Social media features and widgets may be hosted by a third party or directly on our website. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the feature.

Data and Information Submitted to Third Parties on Our Network. This Privacy Policy does not apply to data or personal information that may be submitted to, or collected by, third-party websites hosted by us or to domain names registered by us. Such websites and domain names are not owned or controlled by the Company. You should independently evaluate the privacy policies of such third-party websites before submitting data or personal information to them

  1. Information Use

Personal Information. The information we collect is used for billing and to provide service and support to our customers. We may study this information to determine our customers’ needs and to promote certain products and services or additional support. We may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from information that you provide during registration (such as the total number of customers in a given category). This aggregated and non-identifying information may be used to promote advertisements that appear on our website and in connection with our services.

We take reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorized access to your information. Accordingly, we may require you to provide additional forms of identity should you wish to obtain information about your account details. We may also use the information you provide to email Company newsletters to the primary contact e-mail on file, or to contact you about other products or services that we think may be of interest.

Log Files. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer our site and servers, track access, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. However, it is possible that personal information about a customer may be included in the log files due to the normal functions of IP addresses and Web browsing.

Customer Surveys. We may use the contact and other information provided to follow up with you to help resolve issues internally or with our third party partners. For example, we may contact you based on their survey answers or to highlight certain changes we made in response to your feedback.

  1. Disclosing Information

Partners and Sponsors. Some of our products or services are offered or promoted in conjunction with a partner or sponsor, or another brand or company within our corporate family. We may share your information with these parties to offer the product or service or to facilitate your use of additional amenities included with your Public Domain Registry account. For example, one of our partners may provide services to you based on links that you access from your control panel.

We may also disclose aggregate, anonymous data based on information collected from users to potential partners, reputable third parties and other companies or brands within our corporate family. We will only share your information with third parties that agree to maintain your information in confidence and to use it solely for purposes of providing the product or service as agreed to by us.

Service Providers. We may transfer (or otherwise make available) your personal information to third parties that help us provide our services or provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use service providers to authorize and process payments, administer surveys, or run promotions. Your personal information may be maintained and processed by our third party service providers in the United States or in other jurisdictions. Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes.

Online Advertisements. We do not share personally identifiable information about you with advertisers. We may display online advertisements and we may share aggregated and non-identifying information about you that we collect through the registration process or through online surveys and promotions with certain advertisers. In some instances, we use this aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements. For example, an advertiser may tell us the audience they want to reach (e.g., males between 25 and 55 years of age) and provide us with an advertisement tailored to the audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected, we may then display the advertisement to the intended audience.

Customer Surveys. We may share information obtained from customer surveys within the Company and our corporate family, and with trusted third parties to develop or provide products and services that we believe would be of interest to you.

Domain Registration. In certain jurisdictions or pursuant to the rules of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”) or certain registries, the contact information you provide to register a domain name (“Domain Name Registration Information”) has to be made available and accessible to the public through a “WHOIS” search. The WHOIS database is a publicly accessible database that lists the Domain Name Registration Information for a particular domain name, the name server(s) to which the domain name points, and the domain name’s creation and expiration date. The Domain Name Registration Information you provide is hosted by us or a third party service provider and is made available to the public through WHOIS searches. At times, customers may receive solicitations that result from searches of the publicly available WHOIS database by other companies or individuals. Any such solicitations or SPAM do not come from us and we do not control the use of WHOIS information by third parties. Further, pursuant to ICANN rules, we are required to make WHOIS data available to any third party that enters into a bulk access agreement. While ICANN allows individuals to opt-out (using the account management panel, domain management console or similar service) of having their WHOIS information made available to third parties through bulk access, companies, such as ours, businesses, and other organizations do not have the ability to opt-out of having their information made available to a third party that enters a bulk access agreement. We may also deposit your Domain Name Registration Information with a third-party escrow provider to comply with ICANN requirements.

Sale of Business. If the Company is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a material portion of its assets, change in corporate control, or insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings, you will be notified via email or a prominent notice will be placed on the website of any such change in ownership or use of your personal information as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.

Legal and Compliance Reasons. We may access, preserve and share your information with companies, organizations, governmental entities or individuals outside of the Company if we believe, in good faith, that the law requires us to do so. This may include, but is not limited to, responding to subpoenas, court orders or other legal processes (such as law enforcement requests). We may also access, preserve and share your information as necessary to: (i) establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against any legal claim including threatened claims involving the Company based on the anonymity of a domain name; (ii) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected fraud or other illegal activities; (iii) prevent death or serious physical harm to any person; or (iv) investigate violations of our Terms of Service.

Registration of a Registered Name that is deleted within the add-grace period established by the appropriate Registry Operator and for which the Registrar is eligible to receive a refund from the Registry Operator. In most circumstances, the Registry Operator requires that such deletion be requested within five (5) days of the date of the registration;
              2. Non-explicit renewals of a Registered Name for which the Registrar is eligible to receive a refund from the Registry Operator. In most circumstances, the Registry Operator requires that such refund must be requested within thirty (30) days of the date of the non-explicit renewal; or

If a refund is issued by Registry Operator to Registrar for a Refund Event, the amount paid by Reseller to Registrar for the transaction reversed by the Refund Event will be credited to Reseller’s credit card on file, or if Reseller has an Advance Account in place at the time of such refund, to such Advance Account, in either case within fourteen (14) Business Days of the date that Registrar actually receives the relevant refund from the Registry Operator for the Refund Event.

          6. Pricing. Registrar will display the current price for each Registrar Service within Reseller’s account. Registrar has the right to modify its pricing at any time, and any such modification will be binding and effective immediately upon notification by email to Reseller or upon posting within Reseller’s account.

Arbitration Agreement

This Arbitration Agreement includes an agreement that all claims will be brought only in an individual capacity (and not as a class action or other representative proceeding). Please read it carefully. You may opt out of this agreement by following the opt out procedure described in Section 11.  Unless otherwise stated, defined terms in this Arbitration Agreement have the meanings provided to them in the ResellerClub Terms of Service. ResellerClub may modify this Arbitration Agreement at any time with appropriate notice.

  1. Informal Process First. You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and ResellerClub, you will first contact us and make a good faith sustained effort to resolve the dispute before resorting to arbitration under these Terms.
  2. Binding Arbitration. Any dispute or claim that remains unresolved after the informal dispute resolution described in Section 1 except for disputes relating to the infringement of our intellectual property rights or the access or use of the Service in violation of these Terms (a “Claim”) or Claims seeking more than $10,000 in damages, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, provided that you may assert Claims in small claims court located in Suffolk County, Massachusetts if your Claims qualify
  3. No Judge or Jury. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these Terms as a court would
  4. Arbitrator and Rules. The arbitration will be conducted before a neutral single arbitrator, whose decision will be final and binding, and the arbitral proceedings will be governed by the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules, Consumer Due Process Protocol, and Supplementary Procedures for Resolution of Consumer Related Disputes. These rules can be found on the AAA website at www.adr.org.  In the event of a conflict between the commercial arbitration rules and this Arbitration Agreement, this agreement shall control, and the parties shall designate another arbitrator.
  5. Starting an Arbitration. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send written notice to ResellerClub’s Legal Department of its intent to arbitrate (“Notice”). The Notice to ResellerClub should be sent by any of the following means:(i) electronic mail to legal@publicdomainregistry.com; or (ii) sending the Notice by U.S. Postal Service certified mail to:

ResellerClub Hosting, Attn: Legal Department, 10 Corporate Drive, Suite 300,  Burlington,

MA 01803. The Notice must (x) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (y) set forth the specific relief sought. If we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or ResellerClub may commence an arbitration proceeding.

  1. Format of Proceedings. The arbitration will be conducted, at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online, or based solely on written submissions.
  2. Fees. If you initiate arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, we will pay all other AAA and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.  Any fees greater than the filing fees of the small claims court in your home jurisdiction will be paid by ResellerClub.
  3. Individual Basis; Jury Trial Waiver. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and ResellerClub each agree that any proceeding to resolve a Claim will be conducted only in the respective party’s individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, multiple plaintiff or representative action (“Class Action”). If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, you and ResellerClub each waive any right to a jury trial. You and ResellerClub expressly waive any ability to maintain any Class Action in any forum. If the Claim is subject to arbitration, the arbitrator will not have authority to combine or aggregate similar claims or conduct any Class Action nor make an award to any person or entity not a party to the arbitration. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.  Further, you agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate proceedings or more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that if this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration clause shall be null and void.  The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.  
  4. Enforcement. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The United Nations Conventions on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will have no applicability.
  5. Invalidity. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds the foregoing arbitration provisions invalid or inapplicable, you and ResellerClub each agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Federal and State courts located in Boston, Massachusetts, and you and ResellerClub each agree to submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any applicable dispute or claim.
  6. Opting Out. If you do not want to arbitrate disputes with us and you are an individual, you may opt out of this arbitration agreement by sending an email to legal@publicdomainregistry.com within thirty (30) days of the first of the date you access or use the Service.
  7. Confidentiality.  The parties shall maintain the confidential nature of the arbitration proceeding and any award, including the hearing, except as may be necessary to prepare for or conduct the arbitration hearing on the merits, or except as may be necessary in connection with a court application for a preliminary remedy, a judicial challenge to an award or its enforcement, or unless otherwise required by law or judicial decision.

Backup Policy

We undertake periodic backups of data on our shared hosting servers, email infrastructure but the final responsibility for all backups of the data on your hosting packages rests with you. We strongly recommend that you take periodic backups and store them at your end so that you have multiple options in case of necessity for a restore. You may request us for a backup of the last 7 days (from the date of request) and in most cases we will be able to provision this from our disaster recovery backups. However, this is not a part of our core hosting services and is merely a last resort. We will try our best to help you out but backups provisioning and restoration is an extremely time and resource intensive process and hence we can only promise a best effort service in this regard. We strongly recommended that you make use of CodeGuard for reliable and cheap offsite back ups. Read more here - https://india.publicdomainregistry.com/codeguard On VPS, Dedicated servers, Managed Servers, OX Email we do not maintain any backups that can be restored on a per server or package basis. For Managed Servers, you can buy additional SAN storage or another server and request us for backup configuration and we will be able to set this up for you. Modifying Firewall Rules for Dedicated/Managed Servers: On your backup request, We will share a list of IPs to be whitelisted in your firewall at all times to enable us to create the backup archive. If there is a rule in iptables (server firewall) to block all connections or allow connections only from specific IP which does not include the ones shared in response to your ticket, we retain the right to reboot the server in single user mode, stop the iptables service and then access the server in order to check the abuse complaint reported without prior notice, if need be. Note: Public Domain Registry requires a fee of ₹ 1000 + 15% Service Tax to provide backup on the Shared Hosting package, ₹ 3500 + 15% Service Tax for a Reseller Hosting package upto 10 cPanel Accounts.
