You acknowledge that Resell.biz may modify this TOS if necessary to comply with the ICANN Agreement, our agreements with Third Party Registrars, or as otherwise provided in this TOS.

1.1.2. Registration of Domain Names
188.8.131.52. You understand that submitting information to us to register a domain name does not result in immediate registration. You have presented us with an Application to register a domain name. This Application must be processed before it can be submitted for registration. There are a number of cases in which your Application may be denied. Examples of these include, but are not limited to: your failure to meet our credit or fraud standards; your failure to meet the standards of the domain registry, or the Third Party Registrar; registration of the domain name by another person during the period of time in which we are processing the Application; and/or your failure to pay the Fees. We are not liable for any loss or damages resulting directly or indirectly from, or responsible to you in any way for failure to register a domain name.
184.108.40.206. You authorize us to place your domain name in a locked status. This status will prevent your domain from being transferred. To unlock your domain, you log into your account and unlock it.

You are required to provide us with your own full contact information, and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information, to allow us and others to resolve any problems that arise in connection with the domain name. You are liable for any harm caused by the wrongful use of the domain name, even if you have licensed its use to another party.
188.8.131.52. If you choose to license the domain name to a third party, you remain the actual registrant. You are required to provide us with your Registration Information, in addition to that of the third party to whom you license the domain name. If you receive a request from a party who provides you with reasonable evidence that they will sustain actionable harm, you are required to disclose the current contact information given to you by the entity to whom you license the domain name. Your failure to promptly disclose this information to the person or entity requesting it shall be considered your acceptance of liability for that harm.
184.108.40.206. If you choose to purchase private registration services from us, our name, or the name of our private registration service will be listed as the registrant of the domain and its owner (Private Registration). While Private Registration is in effect, you remain the owner of the domain name and responsible for all of the obligations set out in this TOS. We may receive communications intended for you during Private Registration. You are required to respond to these communications. We are not liable for misdirected communications that result from your failure to maintain up-to-date or accurate contact information, or Registration Information enabling us to contact you. If necessary, we will disclose your contact information pursuant to a legal request to do so, ICANN or other policy applicable to either of us, or as necessary to protect our interests.
220.127.116.11. You agree that a domain name you register through us may be suspended, cancelled or transferred if required by ICANN, us, a court, or a Third Party Registrar, if necessary to correct a mistake, or as applicable during or following the resolution of a dispute regarding the domain name.
18.104.22.168. You understand that Domain Names are registered for a discrete period of time. It is your sole and exclusive obligation to keep track of this period, and to maintain up-to-date payment information should you choose to have us register the Domain Name. We encourage you to renew your domain name sufficiently before the date of expiration to ensure that registration problems do not cause the domain name to lapse. We have no obligation to participate in the post expiration renewal of your domain name, or any redemption process offered by a registrar.
22.214.171.124. The person, or entity, listed as the owner (as set out in paragraph 1.7 above) in our records will be considered by us as having full right, title and authority in the domain name.
126.96.36.199. For the first sixty days following your initial registration, renewal, or transfer, of the domain name, you agree that you may not transfer it to another domain name registrar. After that time, you may transfer your domain name, pursuant to the ICANN domain name transfer policy, available herehttp://www.icann.org/transfers/policy-12jul04.htm, or in the applicable provision of Part 2.
188.8.131.52. Your Domain Name may be "parked" by us if you fail to provide us with complete name-server information, or if you purchase parking services from us.

220.127.116.11. The domain registrar will escrow the name you give us, email address, telephone number, fax number, and if provided, the postal address of the billing contact for each domain name registered. However, should you use a domain name privacy or domain proxy service, this information WILL NOT be escrowed, and should our business fail, a third party would not be able to contact you to facilitate recovery or transfer of your domain name. Should you provide domain name privacy or domain proxy services to your customers, you are required by ICANN to display a prominent notice to the end customer informing them that their data will not be escrowed.
1.1.4. Domain Name Transfers
18.104.22.168. You agree to be bound by the domain name transfer agreement located here: http://www.icann.org/transfers/policy-12jul04.htm.

Only the individual or entity set out in our records as the account owner, or the registrant and/or administrative contract listed in the Registration Information may transfer a domain name, or respond to a transfer request. You must unlock your domain prior to requesting a transfer. You must also secure an EPP AuthCode in order to transfer domains in an EPP registry.
126.96.36.199. ICANN policies allow us to refuse to transfer a domain name if there is a dispute about the ownership of a domain name to be transferred, if you are bankrupt, or if your account has been suspended by us. It is very important that you follow the transfer process closely. Factors beyond our control, such as the expiration of your domain name, misrouted email, or failure of a payment to process, may cause the domain transfer process to fail. It is your responsibility to ensure that the process is carried through to completion.
188.8.131.52. The fees and charges for the Services are set out on our website.

It is your responsibility to ensure that we receive payment of the Fees. It is your responsibility to ensure that information necessary for us to collect the Fees is current.
220.127.116.11. If the Fees are not received when due, your account will be considered delinquent and your domain name may be suspended, dropped, and/or purchased by a third party. If allowed by the registry authority, we may take possession of your domain name during the period your account is suspended or following termination. You have 30 days to resolve any billing disputes at which point the Service (including domain names) will be terminated, transferred to our name, or the management of the domain name may be transferred to another reseller. In the case of a billing dispute involving a domain name, restoring the domain name to you, or refunding the Fee, will be our sole and exclusive obligation to you and your sole and exclusive remedy.
18.104.22.168. This Agreement will begin on the Effective Date and continue for the term set out on the Application (Initial Term). After the expiration of the Initial Term, the Agreement will renew for successive periods of equal length (Renewal Term). If the Application does not contain an Initial Term, the Initial Term shall be one year.

126.96.36.199. We reserve the right to immediately terminate this TOS, and suspend or cancel your Services, and, if necessary, your domain name: (i) for a violation of any provision of this TOS or any other Agreement, including third party agreements that apply to you through this TOS; and/or (ii) your failure to pay any amounts due. This right of termination is without prejudice to any other rights we may have. You are not entitled to any type of notice or protest should we exercise these rights. You will not receive a refund if the Services are terminated pursuant to this paragraph.
188.8.131.52. One party may also terminate this TOS upon the occurrence of a material breach which has not been cured by the other party within 30 days of their receipt of written notice of the breach. Notices of material breach must contain sufficient detail for the party against whom the assertion of material breach is directed, to identify the breach and attempt to take corrective action.
184.108.40.206. Upon termination, your account will be closed and the Services terminated. We have no responsibility to forward email, or other communications, once your account is closed.

18.104.22.168. If your domain name expires or lapses, we may point the domain name to our name servers and/or IP addresses. These addresses may be parking pages from which we derive revenue. You are not entitled to this revenue. Dependent on domain extension you may have up to thirty days during this period to redeem your domain name. If you do not redeem your domain name within this period, you agree that your domain name has been abandoned. If your domain name has been abandoned, we may delete it, register it in our own name, or engage in any other transaction we deem beneficial to us. You have no right to compensation should this occur.
