We may refuse to accept your order for any reason at our sole discretion and we are not obliged to indicate or discuss our reasons with you. Any acknowledgement of your order we send you is for your reference and information only and is not an acceptance of your order.

Cancellation before acceptance

If either of us cancel the order before we have sent you an order acceptance, we will arrange for you to be refunded any fees that you have already paid in respect of that order, subject to the provisions of this agreement.

We may send you an invoice at any time after we have sent you an order acceptance.

Mistakes in your order

Some services and/or products may take a few days to provision, depending on the nature of the service you have requested.

Some services and products may require you to take appropriate action to authorise or authenticate the products or services ordered. In this case, you are responsible for completing the actions that you are required to complete in a timely manner so that the products and services can be provisioned. If you fail to authorise or authenticate the underlying product or service, we are not liable for refunding you.

We take payment for the products and services we provide to you in advance. Those payments are invoiced annually approximately one month before the expiry date of your existing service agreement. Your contract with us is for a 12 month period, unless we agree to invoice you on a different time period. We do not make refunds for early termination of your agreement, except as provided for in this agreement.

We will send you an invoice about one month prior to the expiry of your existing agreement and you will have 15 days to pay the invoiced amount. If you have not paid the invoice on the date it is due, we will cancel our agreement on the date your existing agreement expires. At this point, we will cease to provide services to you and the services may be suspended or terminated by us without further notice.

Late payments

We may accept late payment of a due invoice if you contact us and inform us that you wish to continue our services. In this case, we may charge interest or late payment fees, as we deem appropriate. If your account with us is in arrears, we are not liable to provide you with any of the services or to support your use of any services that have not yet been suspended. It is your responsibility to ensure that you settle your account on or before the date that an invoice is due.

Changes to fees

We may change our fees for the services we provide to you at any time. If we change our fees mid-term and those changes take immediate effect on your account, we will inform you in advance of the change and we will apply the changes on a pro-rata backdated basis on your next invoice. Your continued use of the service after we have informed you of the change is considered acceptance of the change and you will become liable for the additional amount. If you choose to terminate our service before the next invoice becomes due, any outstanding fees on your account will become immediately due and we may, at our discretion, withhold transfer of domain names from our registry service, or withhold access to other data until the outstanding amount is paid in full.

We will not notify you of any changes to our fees that do not affect your existing agreement with us; if our fees change from the date of your next invoice only, the new fees will appear on your next invoice.

At the expiry of an existing agreement, the agreement will be deemed to have been renewed when you pay an invoice for the next agreement period.

We are not required to inform you about inflationary rises in the fees we charge, which will become effective from the date of your next invoice.

If you are an individual from another Member State, we are required under EU taxation regulations to charge you VAT at the rate imposed by your authority.

If you use our services for a business that is registered in another Member State of the European Union (i.e., not the UK), it is your responsibility to assess and submit VAT to be paid to the appropriate authority. You are required under EU tax regulations to provide us with sufficient proof that you are a business registered in another Member State to qualify for this relief, if we are unsatisfied with the information you provide to us, we are required to charge you VAT at the prevailing rate in your Member State of origin.

Your legal rights

We are under a legal duty to supply the services in conformity with this agreement. If you are a consumer (i.e., non-business customer) under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, you can ask us to repeat or fix the services if they are not carried out with reasonable care or skill, or get some money back if we can't fix the problem.

Nothing in this agreement will affect your legal rights if you are a consumer.

Events outside of our control

We do not have any liability or responsibility for any failure resulting from an event outside of our control.

Definition of Events outside of our control

An Event outside of our control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control. These may include, for example, strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks.

Process relating to events outside of our control

In an event outside of our control occurs that affects the performance of our obligations under this agreement, we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you of the event and our obligations under this agreement will be suspended for the duration of the event. Once the event has resolved, our responsibilities will resume.


You may cancel this agreement if an event takes place and you no longer wish to make use of the services. Your cancellation rights are described elsewhere in this agreement. We will only cancel this agreement if the event and resulting disruption to your services continues for longer than 28 consecutive days, in which case the cancellation will have immediate effect.

Retention of records

We have a legal obligation to retain records relating to the services we provide and our business dealings for at least six years.

Alteration and amendment

We may revise the agreement and other policies at any time by amending this and other relevant pages of the website. You are advised to check these pages from time to time to refresh your knowledge of the agreement as it is binding upon you.


Third parties

Anyone other than you and us has no rights under this agreement.

Transfer by us

We may transfer our rights and obligations under this agreement to another organisation and we will always inform you if this happens. This will not affect your rights or our obligations under this agreement.


If you are in breach of this agreement we reserve the right to either take action or take no action. Whether we take action immediately or take no action does not impair our rights and remedies in any situation where you breach this agreement and we shall not be deemed to have waived such rights.


If any of the conditions within the agreement is deemed invalid, void or for any reason unenforceable, that condition will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any of the remaining conditions.
