    The Client acknowledges  and understands that the services in respect of domain registration and renewal are limited to forwarding the application to the relevant naming authority. For the avoidance of any doubt, it shall remain the sole responsibility of the Client to verify if the requested Domain has been successfully registered with the appropriate authority.

    Registration:  You undertake and warrant to Websumu that the registration of any domain name and the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used will not infringe any third party rights; and it is not being made in bad faith or could be considered to be an abusive registration under the relevant registration authority's dispute policies and procedures; and  that it will at no time whatsoever be used for any unlawful purpose.

    The Client acknowledges that whilst Websumu will use its reasonable endeavours to register a Requested Domain (Domain), we will not be obliged to accept any request to register or continue to process any registration of a Domain where such a Domain has not been capable of registration. 

    Upon successful registration, Websumu will use reasonable endeavours to notify the Client of any renewal dates vi the email address provided to us at registration.

    Websumu makes no representation of warranties (expressed of implied) of any kind that a Domain is available for registration or to the likelihood of a registration being successful. The Client acknowledges that the registration of the Domain will be subject to any registration requirements of th appropriate registry. 

    The Client will at all times comply with the terms and conditions applying to the domain name registrations published by the relevant naming authority (including the domain dispute resolution policy of that authority) and any other authority having similar force.

    Naming Authorities Terms:

    By registering a .uk domain name, you enter into a contract of registration with Nominet UK on the terms and conditions as shown on their website  at www.nominet.org.uk/nominet-terms. For information on resolving domain name disputes, visit www.nominet.org.uk/disputes/drs/policy.

    Renewal: All Domain names are renewed on an annual basis unless agreed otherwise. We will send out reminder email 30 days before expiry of the Domain to the email address we have on our records, it is the registrants responsibility to keep us informed of their most current contact details.  Websumu takes no responsibility if your domain renewal fails due to your contact details being incorrect, late payments received or technical faults which are beyond our control. 

    All Domains will automatically be renewed for the same period that they were originally registered for by default. If you do not wish to renew a domain please make sure you notify us a minimum of 14 days before the expiry by emailing us at hostadmin@websumu.net. 

    All renewals will be billed upon successful renewal. Payment will be taken from the payment method you have last used on the account. This could be PayPal, Direct Debit, Cheque.

    If you do not renew your domain before its expiry date, it will have all services such as email and  website, that we provide, suspended and you will have up to 30 days (protected period) after which the domain name can be renewed at the original renewal fee.  For renewal after 30 days, the Client will pay 75 + VAT redemption fee in addition to the renwal fee. Websumu will not guarantee successful renewal of a domain name if the renewal request is received from the Client after 60 days of expiry.

    Transfer: To transfer a .uk domain name to different registrar, a transfer out fee of 15 + VAT will be incurred by the Client payable to Websumu. The transfer of .com, .org, .net is free and needs to be started by the destination registrar. We will provide the required authorisation code upon request to complete the transfer. 

    By transferring out the domain to a registrar of your choice, your service with Websumu will terminate.
