Agreement ("Agreement") sets forth the terms and conditions
of your use of CC Hosting.com's domain name registration services
to register an Internet domain name, as well as your registration
of that domain name. To complete the registration process, you must
acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound
by all terms and conditions of this Agreement, the accompanying
dispute policy and any rules or policies that are or may be published
by CC Hosting.com from time to time. This Agreement will become
effective when accepted by CC Hosting.com. CC Hosting.com 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. What We Do
CC Hosting.com conforms with the Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers ("ICANN") for the .com, .net and .org
TLDs. ICANN oversees the .com, .net and .org TLDs. CC Hosting.com
is, upon accepting your domain name registration application, your
sponsor for that application. All domain name registrations we register
for .com, .net and .org are not effective until we have delivered
the domain name registration information you provide us to the registry
administrator for the .com, .net or .org TLDs, as applicable, and
the registry administrator puts into effect your domain name registration.
Currently, the registry administrator for the .com, .net and .org
TLDs is Network Solutions, Inc.
You agree and
acknowledge that CC Hosting.com is not liable or responsible in
any way for any errors, omissions or any other actions by the registry
administrator arising out of or related to your application and
receipt of, or failure to receive, a domain name registration.
You further agree
to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the registry administrator
and its directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against
any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including
reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising out of, or related to,
your domain name registration.
As consideration for the domain name registration services provided
by CC Hosting.com to you, you agree to pay CC Hosting.com, of the
desired domain name registration, the amounts set forth by CC Hosting.com,
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 or renewed 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 CC Hosting.com in its sole discretion).
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 CC Hosting.com as the paying entity for that registration to
the registry. 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, currently
set at €150 Euros.
You will be notified
when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid within the
time specified in a second notice or reminder regarding renewal,
your registration will 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 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.
3. Dispute Policy
You agree to be bound by the CC Hosting.com Domain Name Dispute
Policy ("Dispute Policy"), which is hereby incorporated
and made a part of this Agreement by reference. The Dispute Policy
can be found at http://www.cchosting.com/cchsite/policies/dispute_policy.htm
Certain disputes, as specified in the Dispute Policy, are subject
to that Policy. You agree that you will be subject to the provisions
specified in the Dispute Policy in effect at the time your domain
name registration is disputed by a third party, in the event such
dispute arises. You also agree that, in the event a domain name
dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold
CC Hosting.com harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained
in the Dispute Policy.
4. Changes to Registration Agreement and Dispute Policy
You acknowledge that the domain name system and the practice of
registering and administering domain names are evolving, and therefore
you agree that CC Hosting.com may modify this Agreement and the
Dispute Policy if necessary to comply with its ICANN agreement,
and any other Agreements that CC Hosting.com is currently bound
by or will be bound by in the future, as well as to adjust to changing
business circumstances. Your continued use of the domain name registered
to you shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement and the
Dispute Policy with the new modifications. If you do not agree to
any of such changes, you may request that your domain name registration
be cancelled or transferred to a different domain name registrar.
You agree that such cancellation or request for transfer will be
your exclusive remedy if you do not wish to abide by any changes
to this Agreement or the Dispute Policy.
