TERMINATION OF SERVICE
The 'free' domain provided in some hosting service packages is conditional on you, the customer, renewing your hosting subscription service with us. If you fail to renew the hosting service and wish to retain the domain name registration, then you will need to pay the domain name registration renewal charges for that domain name.
Domain Express has the option to suspend the service immediately upon breach by the client of any of the terms and conditions of this agreement, including, without limitation, late or non-payment of sums due. If invoices have not been paid 7 days prior to the renewal date, we will automatically charge customers using card details that we hold. If you do not wish to be automatically billed on your credit card please login to your 'Domain Express Client Area' on the Domain Express website and remove the card details.
From time to time Domain Express or its sub-contractors need to carry out maintenance on the network, which may involve shutting parts of it down. Domain Express will give as much notice as possible and shall try to keep this work to the period specified in the notice. Domain Express accepts no liability whatsoever arising from such a suspension of the service.
DOMAIN REGISTRATION SERVICES
Domain Names are registered by Domain Express with the relevant Naming Authority under the Clients details given at the time of registration. Once Domain Express has accepted the order for domain registration by the client, the Domain Name is the property of the Client for the period of the initial registration and cannot be revoked. The client shall maintain all future registration payments for their Domain Name until such time that written notice of cancellation is submitted to Domain Express fourteen days prior to the renewal date. Otherwise Domain Express will invoice all clients that have purchased a new Domain name through Domain Express on expiry of their current registration period.
In case you do not wish to be auto-charged, It is the responsibilty of the customer to ensure that their credit card details are removed from our system. This can be done by logging into their management panel online.
If you are on Direct Debit it is your responsibilty to inform your bank in case of cancellation of service with us.
Domain Express does not warrant or guarantee that the domain name applied for will be registered in your name or is capable of being registered by you. Accordingly, you should take no action in respect of your requested domain name(s) until you have checked the WHOIS database (see below) to see the status of your registration. All invoices posted to customers are confirmation of payment made only. Invoices are not a confirmation of domain registration, which can only be determined by checking the WHOIS database. Domain Express accepts no liability for consequential loss of earnings and revenue incurred due to the client's premature actions.
