Registrar Registration Agreement

Registrar Registration Agreement

This Domain Registration Agreement (hereinafter referred to as the "Agreement") sets forth the terms and conditions of your ("your" or "Registrant") use of PakNIC (Private) Limited  (hereinafter referred to as "PAKNIC " or "Registrar") domain name registration services (hereinafter referred to as "Services") to register an Internet domain name, or .NAME Defensive Registration, or .NAME Mail Forward (the "Order") that you have registered/reserved through or transferred to Registrar, your registration of that domain name, as well as other PAKNIC domain name related services (hereinafter referred to as "Services").   

In this Agreement "you", "your" and "Registrant" refer to each customer and "we", "us" and "our" refer to PakNIC (Private) Limited.   This Agreement explains our obligations to you, and your obligations to us in relation to each of our service including .NAME Defensive Registration and .NAME Mail Forward that you have registered/reserved through or transferred to Registrar ("Order"), directly or indirectly,  whether or not you have been notified about Registrar.   By selecting our service(s) you have agreed to establish an account with us for such services.   When you use your account or permit someone else to use it to purchase or otherwise acquire access to additional PAKNIC service(s) or to cancel your PAKNIC service(s) (even if we were not notified of such authorization), this Agreement covers such service or actions.  By using the service(s) provided by PAKNIC under this Agreement, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement, the accompanying Domain Dispute Policy and any pertinent rules or policies that are or may be published by PAKNIC.

This Agreement will become effective when accepted by PAKNIC or at the time order is placed.   PAKNIC may elect to accept or reject your domain name registration application for any reason at its sole discretion, such rejection including, but not limited to, rejection due to a request for registration of a prohibited domain name.

1.   Our Services.

 PAKNIC is an accredited registrar with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") for  various Top Level Domain's (TLDs).   ICANN oversees registrations and other aspects of the TLDs.   As an accredited domain name registrar, PAKNIC is, upon accepting your domain name registration application, your sponsor for that application.  All domain name registrations we register for TLDs are not effective until we have delivered the domain name registration information you provide us to the Registry Operator ("Registry Operator") for the TLDs, as applicable, and the Registry Operator puts into effect your domain name registration.

You agree and acknowledge that PAKNIC is not liable or responsible in any way for any errors, omissions or any other actions by the Registry Operator arising out of or related to your application and receipt of, or failure to receive, a domain name registration.

2.   What We Do Not Do.  

We cannot and 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 also 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 to indemnify us.

3.   Fees.  

As consideration for the domain name registration services and/or other services provided by PAKNIC to you, you agree to pay PAKNIC, prior to the effectiveness of the desired domain name registration, the applicable service(s) fees for the initial registration of the domain name and, should you choose to renew the registration, subsequent renewals of the registration.   All fees are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if your domain name registration is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of your then current registration term.   Your requested domain name will not be registered unless we receive actual payment of the registration fee, or reasonable assurance of payment of the registration fee from some other entity (such reasonable assurance as determined by PAKNIC in its sole discretion).  As further consideration for the PAKNIC service(s), you agree to:

(1) provide certain current, complete and accurate information about you as required by the registration process and ;

(2) maintain and update this information as needed to keep it current, complete and accurate.  All such information shall be referred to as Account Information ("Account Information").   In the event of a charge back by a credit card company (or similar action by another payment provider allowed by us) in connection with the payments of the registration fee for your domain name registration, you agree and acknowledge that the domain name registration shall be transferred to PAKNIC as the paying entity for that registration to the Registry Operator.   We will reinstate your domain name registration solely at our discretion, and subject to our receipt of the initial registration or renewal fee and our then-current reinstatement fee up to or equal to $100 USD.   You will be notified via an email message or via your Account Information when renewal fees are due.   Should these fees go unpaid within the time specified in a second notice or reminder regarding renewal, your registration may be cancelled.  Payment must be made by credit card or such other method as we may indicate in the registration application or renewal form.  We will renew your domain name for you provided your credit card or other billing information is available and up to date, unless you instruct us otherwise within the time specified.  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 you accordingly.

4.   Disclaimer and Uniform Domain Name Dispute Policy.  

If you request, reserved or registered a domain name through us, or transferred a domain name to us from another registrar, you agree to be bound by PAKNIC's current Disclaimer ("Disclaimer") and current Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy ("Dispute Policy") including listed on ICANN website (http://www.icann.org/udrp/), both of which are published on our site and are incorporated herein and made a part of this Agreement by reference.  Certain disputes, as specified in the Dispute Policy, are subject to that Policy.  You agree that, if the registration or reservation of your domain name is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy in effect at the time your domain name registration is disputed by the third party.  You also agree that, in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold PAKNIC harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy.

Domain Deletion And Auto-Renew Policy

Domain names are registered for fixed periods that are subject to renewal. If a customer has selected PAKNIC "auto-renew" feature for a domain name registration and has funds available in account or a valid Credit Card on file, PAKNIC will attempt to automatically renew the domain name registration approximately 15 days prior to the domain name expiration date (subject to the terms related to the “auto-renew” feature found in our Service Agreement and on our web site).  If a PAKNIC reseller has selected the “auto-renew” feature on behalf of their customer(s), we will attempt to automatically renew the domain name approximately 15 days prior to the expiration date.  If a customer does not select PAKNIC "auto-renew" feature for a domain name registration, we send several e-mail reminders to the domain Registrant Contact and/or the agents acting on their behalf to alert them that their domain name registration services will expire on a certain date. If a customer does not renew the domain name registration by the expiration date, the domain name registration is subject to deletion at any time after that.  In an effort to help our customers avoid unintentional deletion of their domain name registration(s), we may, but are not obligated to, provide our customers with a "grace period" after their domain name registration services expiration date(s) (a "grace period" begins on the day after the date of expiration). We currently endeavor to provide a grace period that extends 30 days past the expiration date, to allow the renewal of domain name registration services unless if advised by the Registrant that domain name is no more needed or if Registrant specifically selects the feature to let the domain expire with no reminders upon expiration date. During this grace period a customer can renew a domain name registration; however, a grace period is not guaranteed and can change or be eliminated at any time without notice. Consequently, every customer who desires to renew his/her domain name registration services should do so in advance of the expiration date to avoid any unintended domain name deletion.

If an expired domain name registration is not renewed during any grace period provided by PAKNIC, pursuant to our Service Agreement, rather than delete the domain name registration, we may, in our sole discretion, renew and transfer the domain name registration to PAKNIC or to a third party on the customer’s behalf. This renewal and transfer process is called a "Direct Transfer".  We will not attempt to complete a Direct Transfer of a domain name registration after expiration if the customer to whom the domain name is registered has notified us by email at backorderservice@paknic.com stating that he or she does not want us to proceed with such a transfer. In this case, the domain name registration will be deleted. A customer’s failure to notify us that they do not want us to complete a Direct Transfer constitutes that customer’s consent to the Direct Transfer.  

If an expired domain name registration is not renewed as outlined above, absent extenuating circumstances, we will delete the domain name registration. Registry Operators may provide registrars with the ability to "redeem" a deleted domain name registration for a customer, and we, in turn, may (but are not obligated to) provide customers with an ability to redeem/restore a particular domain name registration. Such a Redemption Grace Period (RGP) is not guaranteed and customers should renew their domain name registration services in advance of the domain name registration expiration date(s) to avoid deletion of domain name registration services. Currently, the Registry Operators provide an RGP for 30 days from the date of deletion. If we decide to provide the redemption service to a customer, we charge a fee of US $160 to redeem and renew a domain  name registration during the RGP. If the domain name registration is not redeemed by the expiration of the RGP, it is then placed on "Pending Delete" status for five additional days, after which it is deleted and the domain name character string is once again available for registration.

In the event that a domain name registration is the subject of a Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) proceeding and expires or is deleted during the course of the dispute, the party that filed the UDRP proceeding has the option to renew or restore the domain name registration under the same commercial terms as the original customer. If the case ultimately is terminated or the arbitrator finds against the filing party, the name will be deleted within 45 days.
