1. Term And Renewal and Redemption Period
The Registrant shall continue to be bound by this Agreement, and/or any other agreement as may be applicable from time to time, as long as the provision of the Services [term of the Registrant's domain name registration] is still subsisting. The initial term of the domain name registration will be notified by the Registrar to the Registrant during the initial registration process (Initial Term). Upon expiry of the Initial Term, the Registrant may renew the term of registration to keep the right to use the domain name. The Registrant may submit its renewal request before the expiration of a term or within the period (Renewal Grace Period), together with the relevant fees, where applicable. The Registrant will then have the right to enter into a new agreement with the Registrar on the same terms and conditions that the Registrar is offering to new domain name registrants at that point in time.
(a) Expiry of domain names Immediately after the expiration of the term of domain name registration and before deletion of the domain name in the applicable Registry and Domain Provider(s)'s database, the Registrant acknowledges that the Registrar may direct the domain name to name-servers and IP address(es) designated by the Registrar, including, without limitation, to no IP address or to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine that may display advertisements, and the Registrant acknowledges that the Registrar may either leave the Registrant's WHOIS information intact or that the Registrar may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name so that the Registrant is no longer listed as the registrant of the expired domain name.
(b) Reactivation of domain names i. For a period of approximately thirty (30) days after expiry of the term of the domain name registration, the Registrant acknowledges that the Registrar may provide a procedure by which expired domain name registration services may be reactivated. The Registrant acknowledges and agrees that the Registrar may, but are not obligated to offer this process, called the reactivation period. The Registrant acknowledges that it shall assume all risks and all consequences if the Registrant waits until or after the expiration of the Initial Term to attempt to renew the registration of the domain name. The Registrant acknowledges that the Registrar, for any reason and in its sole discretion, may choose not to offer a reactivation period and that shall not be liable therefore. The Registrant acknowledges that utilization of the reactivation process, if any, may involve additional fees. The Registrant acknowledges and agrees that the Registrar may make available the expired domain name(s) to third parties, and may auction off the rights to expired domain name(s) (the auction beginning close to the end or after the end of the reactivation period), and/or the expired domain name(s) may be re-registered by any party at any time. ii. After the re-activation period, the Registrant agrees that the Registrar may either
(A) discontinue the domain name registration services at any time thereafter;
(B) continue to provide for the registration services and re-activate the domain name; or
(C) if the domain name is auctioned off to a third party, the Registrar may transfer the domain name to such third party.
2. Redemption Period:
(a) This provision applies to any deletion of a domain name, whether inside or outside of any applicable grace period.
(b) Any such deletion will result in a deleted name redemption grace period (Redemption Period). This grace period will allow the Registrant, the Registrar, and/or the Registry and Domain Provider(s) to detect and correct any mistaken deletion.
(c) During the Redemption Period, the deleted domain name will be placed on a Redemption Period status which effectively means that the name will be removed from the zone and the domain name will stop working and would appear offline.
(d) The Registrant can redeem its domain name during the Redemption Period, subject to payment of the Redemption Fees. A party requesting for redemption is required to provide sufficient identification as may be directed by the Registrar for verification purposes.
(e) In the event the Registrant fails to redeem the domain name upon expiry of the Redemption Period, the Registry and Domain Provider(s), on the instructions of the Registrar, shall be entitled to delete the domain name and/or transfer the domain name to a third party.
3. Transfer of Domain Names
The Registrant may transfer its domain name during or before the Renewal Grace Period subject to the Registrar's Domain During the registration, renewal or transfer process, name servers will be requested by the Registrar while the domain name is being registered, renewed or transferred. If a name server is not provided by the Registrant during the registration process, the domain name will be redirected to a page displaying the Under Construction sign; and at the expiry of the Initial Term and prior to renewal, the domain name will be redirected to a page displaying the Domain Expired sign (Parked Domain). Such a redirection page(s) may contain advertisements and the Registrant acknowledges that the Registrar is not responsible and shall not be held accountable for any such advertisement(s). By entering into this Agreement, the Registrant agrees that the Registrar is entitled to redirect the domain name to a Parked Domain and its associated contents in these situations at no cost to the Registrant.
4. Representations and Warranties
The Registrant represents and warrants that at the time of application and at all times thereafter:
(a) the desired domain name does not infringe any registered or unregistered trademark or any other intellectual property rights or any other rights of any third party;
