This Domain Registration Agreement ("Registration Agreement") is between A Small Orange, LLC, ("we," "us," or "A Small Orange"), as the sponsoring registrar, or acting as reseller for the sponsoring registrar identified in the WHOIS record which may be retrieved here, and you, the person or entity registering a domain or domains through A Small Orange, LLC. By using A Small Orange, LLC's domain registration services (the "Services"), you agree to be bound by this Registration Agreement. Please read this agreement carefully. We may modify, add, or delete portions of this Registration Agreement at any time. In such event, we will post a notice that we have made significant changes to this Registration Agreement on the A Small Orange website for at least 30 days after the changes are posted and will indicate at the bottom of this Registration Agreement the date these terms were last revised. Any revisions to this Registration Agreement will become effective the earlier of (i) the end of such 30-day period or (ii) the first time you access or use the Services after such changes. If you do not agree to abide by this Registration Agreement, you are not authorized to use or access the Services.
You acknowledge and agree that A Small Orange may modify this Registration Agreement with or without notice in order to comply with any terms and conditions set forth by ICANN and/or the applicable registry administrators ("Registry Administrators") for the top level domains ("TLD") or country code top level domains ("ccTLD").
Your domain registration will be effective upon occurrence of all of the following.
You understand that A Small Orange does not control all aspects of the domain registration process. For example, once you submit a domain registration, A Small Orange forwards the information contained in the registration to the appropriate Registry Administrator for processing and actual registration of the name. A Small Orange disclaims, and you agree, that A Small Orange is not liable for any inaccuracies regarding the registration information relating to (i) the input of the information by you; and (ii) the input of the information by the Registry Administrator. A Small Orange will not be held liable, nor refund a domain name registration due to spelling errors/typos.
A Small Orange, in accordance with ICANN policies, reserves the rights to refuse to register multiple domain registrations.
In addition, you understand and agree that Registrar is required to verify any changes to any WHOIS contact information within 15 days of any change. The Domain Name Holder's failure to verify such changes within 15 days constitutes a material breach of this Registration Agreement and will result in the immediate suspension of the domain name(s) and associated service(s).
To comply with any applicable laws, rules, regulations or requirements, or with any subpoenas, court orders, official government inquiries or requests of law enforcement;
Upon registration, the domain will be automatically placed on name servers provided by A Small Orange, and Internet users that type in the domain will be redirected to a "coming soon" page (collectively, "parking a domain" or a "parked domain"). There is no charge for parking a domain. You hereby consent to and authorize A Small Orange's placement of a "coming soon" page, and its associated contents, on your parked domain. You may change the name server configuration (or "un-park" the domain) after the registration is complete. If you need to register name servers using the domains that you are currently registering, the names will initially be parked with A Small Orange until you modify the name servers after the domain registration is complete, using your account manager.
You may be notified at A Small Orange's sole discretion when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid within the time specified in a notice or reminder regarding renewal, your registration will be cancelled. Payment must be made by such other method as we indicate in the renewal form. If your billing information is not accurate, you are solely responsible for the failure to renew. Additional information about domain renewal and expiration are available here. Current renewal and redemption fees are available here.
You agree to be bound by the appropriate domain dispute resolution policy ("Dispute Policy") applicable to the domain that you have selected, including the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, which can be found here. The Dispute Policy has been developed by ICANN and/or the specific Registration Administrator(s) and is incorporated by reference in this Registration Agreement. Certain disputes are subject to the applicable Dispute Policy. In the event such dispute arises, you agree that you will be subject to the provisions specified in the applicable Dispute Policy in effect at the time your domain registration is disputed by a third party. You further agree that, in the event a domain dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold A Small Orange harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the applicable Dispute Policy. The Dispute Policy may be modified at any time by ICANN or the applicable Registry Administrator, and your continued use of the domain registered to you after any such Dispute Policy modification shall constitute your acceptance of the modified Dispute Policy and this Registration Agreement. If you do not agree to any of such changes, you may request that your domain registration be cancelled or transferred to a different domain registrar. For the adjudication of disputes concerning or arising from use of the second level domain ("SLD") name, the SLD holder shall submit, without prejudice to other potentially applicable jurisdictions, to the jurisdiction of the courts (1) of the SLD holder's domicile and (2) where registrar is located. In addition, you agree to the rules of ICANN's Uniform Rapid Suspension ("URS") and to submit to any proceedings commenced pursuant to the URS, if applicable.
