Terms and conditions - Domain Services

The provisin of Domain Services to the Client by LSOL are governed by the terms and conditions set out in this part and Parts 1and 3 of the LSOL terms and conditions.

The Client undertakes and warrants to LSOL that the registration of any domain name requested by it (a "Requested Domain") and the manner in which it is to be directly or indirectly used:

  • will not infringe any third party rights; and
  • is not being made in bad faith or could be considered to be an abusive registration under the ICANN or Nominet dispute resolution policies, whichever is appropriate.

The Client also confirms and warrants that any Requested Domain is not being registered and will at no time whatsoever be used for any unlawful purpose.

The Client acknowledges that, whilst LSOL will use its reasonable endeavours to register a Requested Domain, LSOL will not be obliged to accept any request to register or continue to process any registration of a Requested Domain.

The Domain Services are limited to forwarding the application for registration to the relevant naming authority, providing reasonable administration services in relation to the application and notifying the result of the application to the Client within a reasonable period after communication from the authority. LSOL will use reasonable endeavours to notify the Client of any renewal dates however LSOL accepts no liability for the loss of registration of any Requested Domain.

LSOL makes no representations or warranties (expressed or implied) of any kind (and they are expressly disclaimed) with respect to availability or likelihood of registration of any Requested Domain. The Client acknowledges that LSOL cannot guarantee the reservation or registration of any Requested Domain and that the registration of such domain name will be subject to any registration requirements of the appropriate registry.

The Client will check that the domain name as reported on all documents sent to the Client (such as invoices and e-mail notifications) is spelt correctly. The Client will notify LSOL of any incorrect spellings of a Requested Domain promptly and in any event within 24 hours of receiving such document.

Domain names may be subject to additional terms and conditions as laid down by the respective governing bodies; The Client will at all times comply with the terms and conditions (from time to time subsisting) applying to the registration of domain names published by the relevant naming authority (including the domain dispute resolution policy of that authority) and any other authority having similar force.

The Client may need to produce documentary evidence of entitlement and/or identity to comply with terms imposed by some naming authorities.

If the Client wishes to transfer ownership of a Requested Domain then it will procure that all necessary consents to that transfer are obtained and will deliver up to LSOL, on demand, documentary evidence of that all such consents have been obtained. The Client agrees that prior to transferring ownership of a Requested Domain to another person (the "Transferee") the Client will procure that the Transferee agrees in writing to be bound by the terms of the Agreement. A Requested Domain will not be transferred until LSOL receives such written assurances as it requires that the Transferee is bound by the terms of the Agreement.

LSOL will not transfer ownership of a Requested Domain until all Fees attributable to the Domain Services which are due have been paid by the Client to LSOL.

LSOL may from time to time change the registrar that a Requested Domain is held with, at its discretion and without notice to the Client.

The Client agrees and acknowledges that LSOL will make registration information provided by the Client in relation to the Requested Domain available to ICANN, Nominet or any other appropriate registration authority, the registry administrators, and other third parties as applicable laws may require or permit including the police or other enforcement authority. The Client further acknowledges that LSOL may make publicly available, or directly available to third party vendors, some, or all, of the domain name registration information provided, for purposes of inspection (such as through the WHOIS service) or other purposes as required or permitted by ICANN, Nominet and applicable law. The Client consents to any and all such disclosures, whether during or after the term of registration of the Requested Domain. The Client irrevocably waives any and all claims and causes of action arising from such disclosure or use of the domain name registration information by LSOL.

LSOL will only allow a domain name owned or managed by the Client to be attached to the ISP tag of LSOL if the Client has an active hosting account with LSOL. 

The Client agrees that following any upgrades, downgrades or any other changes made by the Client to their Domain or Hosting package the Client will at all times independently manage their Domain(s)
