Terms and conditions

Terms and Conditions for Domain Name Registration Services. These terms apply to all new and existing Customers of Red Technology Solutions Ltd seeking to register or renew a domain name.

1. Domain name registration

1.1 You acknowledge and recognise that the domain name system and the practice of registering and administering domain names is continuously evolving and that Red may modify this Agreement as necessary from time to time to comply with any agreements by which Red is or will be bound, and to adjust to changing business circumstances. We will notify of these changes by e-mail to refer You to the amended provisions.

1.2 Your continued use of the registered domain name constitutes acceptance of this Agreement and amendments, including acceptance of the term and conditions required of Red by its domain name services providers, to which you are bound. By registering domain names, you are entering a contract with Red and its domain service providers. If at any time, you do not agree to such changes, you agree that your sole remedy is to request that your domain name registration be cancelled or transferred to a different domain name registrar

1.3 We make no representation that the domain name you wish to register is capable of being registered by or for you or that it will be registered in your name. You should therefore not assume registration of your requested domain name(s) until you have been notified that it has or they have been registered. Any action taken by you before such notification is at your risk;

1.4 The registration and use of your domain name is subject to the terms and conditions of use applied by the relevant naming authority; you shall ensure that you are aware of those terms and conditions and that you comply with them.

We shall also be entitled to make representations to the relevant naming authority but will not be obliged to take part in any such dispute;

1.7 We give no warranty that your domain name is or will continue to be available for your use or that no domain name is or will be registered which conflicts with your domain name or which otherwise affects your use of your domain name;
