Domain Name Registration
5.1 We accept new domain name registrations and verify the domain name through email for security confirmation. We register new domain registrations as possible after payment has been processed and verified.
5.2 When you register a .uk domain name, we will register it with Nominet on your behalf. You need to comply with Nominet’s terms and conditions which may be viewed on its website.
5.3 When you register a .uk domain name you are entering into two separate binding contracts: one is with us and the other is with Nominet, the registry for all domain names ending in .uk. Registering a .uk domain name entitles you to be a domain name holder and use it for an initial period of 2 years. However, you do not become the owner of the domain name. If you do not renew it at the end of the two year period, it becomes available for other potential applicants.
5.4 Upon registration, it is important that you provide us with accurate contact details so that we and Nominet can contact you about your domain name in the future, for example to renew it for you at the end of the initial registration period. We will do all we can to ensure that your details are submitted correctly during registration as provided by you. As our system is automated, you are advised to check that all details are correct before submitting the domain for registration.
5.5 Once a domain name registration request has been completed no refunds can be made by Fusionhost. No refunds can be made if registration attempts have been made by you within 48 hours of attempting to register the domain through Fusionhost
5.6 Until you receive confirmation of registration from Fusionhost there is no guarantee that the domain name requested has been accepted and will be registered.
5.7 You agree that all details provided by you in respect of a domain name registration are true and correct. You warrant that the registration of the requested domain name and the way in which it is used (directly or indirectly) does not and will not infringe the legal rights of any third party. We do not accept any responsibility for the use of registered domain names especially where there may be conflict over rights to ownership. You hereby indemnify and hold harmless Fusionhost (including its directors, officers and personnel) from and against any costs, claims or legal proceedings arise as a result of the registration of a domain or your conduct hereunder.
Domain Name Renewals
5.8 Domains purchased with web hosting packages are renewed each year at the same time as the package itself. After any registration period has lapsed registration renewal may be made upon receipt of payment of renewal fees. You can renew your domain name up to six months before it is due to expire. You can choose to renew the domain with Nominet at a higher rate. Just let us know that you would like to renew the domain name and we can renew it for you with Nominet. If you do not contact us about the renewal, you will receive a renewal reminder email from Nominet suggesting that you should contact us and ask us to renew the domain name for you. If you still do not contact us, you will receive a pro forma invoice from Nominet for the renewal by email and post seven days after the domain name is due to expire. This is because under the terms of your contract with Nominet they cannot cancel the domain name unless they have contacted you to remind you to renew it.
Domain Name Transfers
5.9 Transfer of a domain away from our registrar to a new registrar (a third party) requires cancellation of the associated hosting account. This policy is in place due to transfers out which leave accounts inactive, wasting server resources. You must provide at least 10 working days notice in writing to transfer a domain away. If the domain is associated with a purchased web hosting package, this package must be in an active status with at least 10 working days left on its contracted period. Domain transfers will be declined due to any outstanding monies on the account or pending abuse investigation or a violation of these Terms.
6.1 Fusionhost has a zero tolerance approach to the sending of unsolicited commercial email or SPAM over our network. Very simply this means that customers of Fusionhost may not use or permit others to use our network to transact in spam messages. Violations of this policy carry severe penalties, including termination of Services. Upon notification of an alleged violation of our SPAM policy, we will initiate an immediate investigation (within 12-24 hours of notification). During the investigation, we may restrict your access to the network to prevent further violations.
6.2 If you are found to be in violation of our SPAM policy, we may, at our sole discretion, restrict, suspend or terminate customer’s account. Further, we reserve the right to pursue civil remedies for any costs associated with the investigation of a substantiated policy violation. Fusionhost will notify applicable law enforcement agencies or officials if the violation is believed to be a criminal offence.
6.3 First violations of this policy may result in an Administrative Fee of £100 at our discretion and your account will be reviewed for possible immediate termination. A second violation will result in an Administrative Fee of £399 and immediate termination of your account. Users who violate this policy agree that these fees will be paid on request. We reserve the right to charge up to a total of £3000 for spam related violations due to costs which may be enforced on us by data carriers or data centre administration fines.
