Domain Registration Terms

Registration of a free domain name


Upon signing up for a hosting account with the Company, The Customer is eligible for free domain name registration, if such is included in the package purchased. In case the customer does not register a free domain name during the sign up process the offer is valid up to the 7th day from the account.

 

The Company will provide The Customer with free domain name registration if its choice falls into one of the following domain name authorities (extensions) .com; .net; .org; .us; .biz; .info.; .de; .co.uk; .org.uk; .ca; .eu; .space; .uk; .tokyo; .futbol; .business; .click; .com.br;

 

Upon cancellation or refund request, the Customer remains the sole owner of the domain name. As the free domain name offer is valid only for active accounts upon refund request  registration fee of $13.95 is being withheld, where the domain name does not belong to the .co.uk or .org.uk domain name authorities. In such case, a fee of $19.95 will be withheld. The Customer is free to continue managing the domain name with the Company, transfer it to another domain registrar or cancel the domain. In any case the registration fee will be withheld upon cancellation.

 

New domain name registration that comes for free must be requested at the time of the initial account setup, during the sign up process, using the provided by The Company options on the sign up page. This domain name must be used as a primary domain for the hosting account it is being granted for and cannot be used for other purposes, unless explicitly arranged with an official representative of the Company.

The Company will register the domain name to The Customer and will not own or otherwise control it. The Customer will remain the only owner and operator of the domain name registered for free by The Company. The Customer authorizes The Company to register the domain name on their behalf, using the details submitted during the sign up process.

General Domain name registration terms


All domain names that do not meet the conditions for free registration and renewal are subject to the appropriate fees depending on the number of domains ordered, the registration period and the domain extension.

Renewal fees are due for all such domains at the end of the pre-paid period. Registration and renewal fees for such domain names are non-refundable

These services will be automatically renewed by The Company when The Customer's domain registration is up for renewal, and will incur the applicable additional renewal fee unless the customer requests cancellation with at least 48 hours before the due date.

The Company will register the domain name to The Customer and will not own or otherwise control it. The Customer will remain the only owner and operator of the domain name registered for free by The Company. The Customer authorizes The Company to register the domain name on his behalf, using the details submitted during the sign up process.

The Customer can change the domain administrative email and manage it through the Client Area. The Customer is allowed transfer the domain name registered by the Company to another domain name registrar at any time by requesting the domain name's EPP key from The Company by submitting a ticket or via other support channel.

Redemption fees applicable in domain name registrations


Redemption period is a domain registry period of up to 30 days that occurs when a domain name is suspended after having expired due to non renewal. Instead of just getting deleted and returning to the pool of domain names available for registration, The Company's registry keeps a hold on the domain name in a what is technically called as Redemption Period. During this 30-day period, The Customer is allowed to retrieve the domain name from deletion by contacting The Company. This process costs an additional fee to The Company, which is billed to The Customer.

The appropriate redemption fee should be paid by The Customer if the renewal request of an additional domain name is received in more than 30 days after the expiration of the domain.

The Redemption fee is $199USD and may be subject to change, if The Company meet significant trouble in retrieving the domain name back on behalf of The Customer. Registration, renewal and redemption fees for such domain names are not subject to refund by The Company.

The Customer agrees that The Company will not be responsible for canceled domain names that he has failed to renew in the given period, either automatically or manually in the time frames indicated in this Agreement.

If The Customer does not redeem his domain name prior to the end of the registry's redemption grace period, The Company will release their domain name and it will become available for registration on a first-come-first-served basis.

The above redemption policies apply for all domain names that do not fall in the .eu and .nl domain name authorities. As per EURID (the operator of .eu domain name registrations) and SIDN (the operator of .nl domain name registrations), both TLDs must be renewed prior to their expiration dates. If the Customer fails to comply with this requirement, the domain name is sent into Redemption Period from day one after expiration and the Company cannot be held liable for any damage, suffer or loss this policy causes.

Domain transfers to The Company


The Company will provide The Customer with domain name transfer services, where such are needed and the desired extension is supported by The Company's registration authority. The Customer agrees to thoroughly, accurately and honestly complete all forms and requests for information provided by The Company throughout the process.

The Company will charge The Customer an appropriate fee for the domain transfer, depending on the domain name extension. This fee is not subject to refund.

The Customer agrees that The Company will not be responsible for any false or misleading information they provides, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

The Company notify the customer if the transfer is not successful with the needed steps that they need to follow in order to finalize the transfer. The Company will reinitiate the transfer process free of charge up to 5 times upon request by the Customer. If further attempts are required after the 5th retry additional fees may be applied by the company.  The Company cannot be held responsible if a domain transfer is not successful.

External Domain Names


The Company will allow The Customer to sign up for an account with a domain name registered elsewhere. The Customer acknowledges that by doing so, The Company cannot be held liable for any faults, misfortunes and other issues caused by inoperability of the third party registered the domain name for The Customer.

The Company will provide The Customer with appropriate DNS records, in terms of addresses and zones, which can be used for pointing a domain name registered elsewhere towards the hosting server where The Customer's account resides. The Customer understands and agrees that additional time might be required for the DNS propagation after the DNS change for their service with the Company to become accessible via the chosen domain.
 

Personal Data

 

The Provider takes all necessary measures to protect the personal data of the User in compliance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 regarding the privacy protection of individuals, the processing of personal data, the free movement of such data and the repeal of Directive 95/46 / EC (GDPR) and the Personal Data Protection Act.

The Provider acts as Data Processor for domain name registrars and processes User personal data in accordance with Art. 6, para. 1, b. "B" of the GDPR and the data processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party. FastComet shall transmit the necessary information to the respective domain registrar who shall process your data as a controller for the purpose of registering the requested domain. The Controller shall not transfer your data to third countries.
 

GDPR Protection
 

FastComet will implement a new “GDPR protection” Domain Whois system. Under this new system:

- The registrant, admin, and technical contact information for registered domains will no longer be visible in the public Whois database.
- "Full" Whois data for registered domains will only be accessible to legitimate and accredited third-parties, such as law enforcement, members of the security community, and intellectual property lawyers.
- This "full" Whois data will be limited to those personal data elements that we have obtained permission to process, either via contract or via consent of the data subject.

Most European registries already show a limited set of data in their whois registers because of current privacy laws, and we will see these data being minimized even further. In many cases, no personal data will be shown at all. For generic extensions (gTLDs), the registrar community is working together with ICANN and the European DPAs on a solution that meets both the requirements of GDPR and ICANN policies.

Some registries will continue to publish the name, address and telephone number of registrants, as this is a requirement in the Domain Names Act. This means that the registry has a legal basis for the publication.

GDPR Protection will not be available for new and existing registrations for certain TLDs. As of May 17, 2017, these TLDs are : .AU, .BR, .CA, .CN (2nd and 3rd level), .DE (2nd and 3rd level), .EC (2nd and 3rd level), .EU, .RU (2nd and 3rd level), .UK (2nd and 3rd level), .US, .ECO, .JOBS, .NGO/.ONG, .NYC and .TEL. These TLD registries may not mask registrant personal data completely and may display some personal data in the WHOIS.

 

ICANN and Registrar Terms

 

In addition to the TOS included on this page, all domain name registrations are subject to the terms and conditions of the FastComet's registrar.
