We can't/don't guarantee that the domain name you wish to register can be registered by/for you, or, that it can be registered in your name. You should not assume that a name has been registered until we confirm the registration and any action you take before receiving confirmation is taken at your own risk. Important: A payment receipt does not confirm that the domain has been registered - it only confirms that a payment has been submitted.
The registration and use of your domain name is subject to the terms and
conditions of the relevant naming authority (The Registry). You must ensure
that you are aware of those terms and conditions and that you comply with
them. You have no right to bring any claim against us in respect of
any naming authority (Registry) refusing to register a domain name that doesn't meet it's requirements or policies.
We shall have no liability for the way you use any domain name; any dispute between you and any other person must be resolved between the parties concerned in the dispute. If we are notified of any such dispute, we shall be entitled (at our discretion and without giving any reason) to suspend or cancel the domain name. We shall be entitled, but not obliged, to make representations to the relevant naming authority in the event of any dispute.
We shall not release any domain to another provider unless full payment for that domain and any outstanding services associated with it has been received.
Additional services included at no extra charge with your domain name registration (example, DNS hosting, web & email forwarding) are provided as a courtesy and we make no promises or guarantees about their availability. These free services are not covered by any Service Level Agreements (unless specifically specified) and are used at your own risk.
Domain name registration fee's are non refundable and are excluded from our '30 Day Money Back Promise'. For .ie registrations that expire because we have not received the required documentation, a credit for the amount paid can be requested within 30 days of the application expiring. There are no refunds for applications or registrations that are deleted after submission.
