Domain Name Registrant Agreement


Terms and Conditions

This Domain Name Registration Agreement is between Web Drive Limited, trading as Domain Agent ("Domain Agent"), and you and (if applicable) your agents.

By completing a transaction you acknowledge that you and your Agent have read, understand and agree to be bound by all these terms and conditions.

Domain Agent may modify this agreement in order to comply with applicable law and the terms and conditions set forth by the DNC, NZRS, SRSPlus or ICANN.

"Registration Provider" is the term used for the reseller of Domain Agent. "ccTLD" refers to Country Code Top Level Domain.

1. Fees

You agree to pay a fee to your registration provider at the time the service is provided, unless you have a prior arrangement.

Domain Agent does not collect and process payments on behalf of resellers.

Unless you have a prior arrangement with your registration provider, any transactions will not be processed until payment is received.

Where payment is made but subsequently withdrawn (due to a credit card chargeback or dishonoured cheque or payment) your Domain may be immediately cancelled.

By default, payments are not refundable. Consult your registration provider for their individual policy on refunds.

2. Domain Name Renewals

It is your responsibility to ensure your Domain name is renewed. Prior to the expiration of registration, Domain Agent will automatically notify the registered name holder of the expiration at 60 days, 30 days and 15 days prior to expiration. There is a further notification sent two days before expiry and immediately following cancellation.

If you fail to renew your Domain it will expire and all associated services will automatically terminate.

A grace period may be available on a per-suffix basis where you can un-cancel and renew an expired Domain within a timeframe before it is released back to the public pool.

Fees may apply on a per-suffix basis for un-cancelling a Domain, and your registration provider may also charge additional administrative fees.

Grace periods and redemption periods vary for different ccTLDs. For further reading consult the individual ccTLD agreements.

3. Domain Transfers

.nz Domains may not be transferred to another registrar for a period of 5 days after initial registration.

Some CCTLDs may require a renewal payment to extend the registration term upon transfer.
