- Domain name registration fees (based on the cost of
the domain, see rates)
must be paid in full for the entire initial registration period prior
to domain activation.
- After the initial registration period, renewal fees
(based on the cost of the domain, see rates)
will be required. Failure to pay renewal fees by the expiration of the
initial registration period or the prior renewal period will result in
the domain being deactivated and made available for registration by
others. After the initial registration period, renewal fees (based on
the cost of the domain, see rates) will be required. Failure to pay
renewal fees by the expiration of the initial registration period or
the prior renewal period will result in the domain being deactivated
and made available for registration by others. Registrant's
registration of the Domain shall automatically renew at the end of the
Registration Term (hereafter the "Renewal Date") for a term
of equal length and no less than 1 year unless Registrant notifies
Registry prior to the Renewal Date that Registrant intends to
terminate the registration of the Domain as of the end of the
Registration Term. Registry is authorized to attempt automatic
renewal(s) until successful. Registrant hereby expressly authorizes
Registry to charge Registrant's credit card on the Renewal Date an
amount equal to the then current standard registration fee for Domains
of equal term. In the event Registrant changes its credit card
information (e.g., credit card number or expiration date) or cancels
the credit card on file with Registry, Registrant agrees to a)
promptly advise Registry of the same and provide an updated credit
card that can be charged by Registry. It is the Registrant's
responsibility to update their credit card information. If Registry is
unable to secure payment the domain will be returned to the available
pool between 1-30 days after expiration date.
- Domain registration fees are due immediately and
- Registration periods purchased prior to an ownership
transfer are automatically forfeited, and do not carry-over to the new
owner. The new owner must complete payment for a new registration
period within 10 days of the ownership transfer to retain ownership of
the domain. Failure to complete this step will result in the release
of the domain back into the general pool without compensation or
- Domains that are transferred from one owner to
another prior to the regular expiration of the initial registration
period or a renewal period may be subject to an administrative
transfer fee at the discretion of Nihon.ws.
