Domain Name Registration Agreement

Last Revised: November 22, 2013

PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY, AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES.

1. OVERVIEW

This Domain Name Registration Agreement (this "Agreement") is entered into by and between Marco Technology Consulting, Inc. (AKA and DBA Marco), a corporation, and you, and is made effective as of the date of electronic acceptance.  This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions of your use of Marco's Domain Name Registration services (the "Domain Name Registration Services" or the "Services"). 

Your electronic acceptance of this Agreement signifies that you have read, understand, acknowledge and agree to be bound by this Agreement, along with (i) Marco’s Universal Terms of Service Agreement, and (ii) any plan limits, product disclaimers or other restrictions presented to you on the Domain Name Registration Services landing page of the Marco website (this “Site”), both (i) and (ii) of which are incorporated herein by reference.   

The terms "we", "us" or "our" shall refer to Marco.  The terms "you", "your", "User" or "customer" shall refer to any individual or entity who accepts this Agreement.  Unless otherwise specified, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.

You acknowledge and agree that (i) Marco, in its sole and absolute discretion, may change or modify this Agreement, and any policies or agreements which are incorporated herein, at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting to this Site, and (ii) your use of this Site or the Services found at this Site after such changes or modifications have been made (as indicated by the “Last Revised” date at the top of this page) shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement as last revised.  If you do not agree to be bound by this Agreement as last revised, do not use (or continue to use) this Site or the Services found at this Site.  In addition, Marco may occasionally notify you of changes or modifications to this Agreement by email.  It is therefore very important that you keep your shopper account (“Shopper Account”) information, including your email address, current.  Marco assumes no liability or responsibility for your failure to receive an email notification if such failure results from an inaccurate or out-of-date email address.

Marco is not an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") accredited registrar; it is an authorized reseller of domain name registration services.  Accordingly, you acknowledge and agree that Marco may modify this Agreement in order to comply with any terms and conditions set forth by (i) the sponsoring registrar, (ii) ICANN, and/or (iii) the registry applicable to the top level domain ("TLD") or country code top level domain ("ccTLD") in question.  As used herein, the terms "registry", "Registry", "registry operator" or "Registry Operator" shall refer to the registry applicable to the TLD or ccTLD in question.  To identify the sponsoring registrar, click here

In addition to domain name registrations, we may offer a variety of products that can be added to your domain name registration. Your purchase and use of each additional product is subject to both the general terms and conditions and the specific terms and conditions for each product as set forth in this Agreement

2. fees and payments

(a) general terms, including automatic renewal terms

You agree to pay any and all prices and fees (including any registration fees required by ICANN) due for Services purchased at this Site at the time you order the Services.  All prices and fees are non-refundable unless otherwise expressly noted, even if your Services are suspended, terminated, or transferred prior to the end of the Services term.  Marco expressly reserves the right to change or modify its prices and fees at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be posted online at this Site and effective immediately without need for further notice to you.  If you have purchased Services for a period of months or years, changes or modifications in prices and fees shall be effective when the Services in question come up for renewal as further described below. 

Where refunds are issued, Marco's issuance of a refund receipt is confirmation that Marco has submitted your refund to the Payment Method (as defined below) charged at the time of the original sale.  You acknowledge and agree that the associated payment provider and/or individual issuing bank establish and regulate the time frames for posting your refund.  Refund posting time frames may range from five (5) business days to a full billing cycle.

You may pay for Services by providing a valid credit card, an electronic check (from your personal or business checking account, as appropriate), PayPal (as defined in the Universal Terms of Service Agreement), Alipay (as defined in the Universal Terms of Service Agreement), or by using Marco's "Good As Gold Prepaid Services" to establish a cash reserve for charge by Marco (each, a "Payment Method").  For Services that offer "Express Checkout", clicking the Express Checkout button will automatically place an order for that Service and charge the primary Payment Method on file for your Shopper Account.  Confirmation of that order will be sent to the email address on file for your Shopper Account. Your Payment Method on file must be kept valid if you have any active Services in your Shopper Account.

If you are being billed on a monthly basis, your monthly billing date will be based on the date of the month you purchased the Services unless that date falls after the 28th of the month, in which case your billing date will be the 28th of each month. 

In order to ensure that you do not experience an interruption or loss of Services, all Services are automatically renewed.  The automatic renewal automatically renews the applicable Service for a renewal period equal in time to one month.  Therefore, unless you notify Marco about a cancellation, Marco will automatically renew the applicable Service when it comes up for renewal and will take payment from the Payment Method you have on file with Marco at Marco's then current rates, which you acknowledge and agree may be higher or lower than the rates for the original service period.  In order to see the renewal settings applicable to you and your Services, simply log into Marco Portal.

In addition, Marco may participate in "recurring billing programs" or "account updater services" supported by your credit card provider (and ultimately dependent on your bank's participation).  If you are enrolled in an automatic renewal option and we are unable to successfully charge your existing Payment Method, your credit card provider (or your bank) may notify us of updates to your credit card number and/or expiration date, or they may automatically charge your new credit card on our behalf without notification to us.  In accordance with recurring billing program requirements, in the event that we are notified of an update to your credit card number and/or expiration date, Marco will automatically update your payment profile on your behalf. Marco makes no guarantees that we will request or receive updated credit card information. You acknowledge and agree that it is your sole responsibility to modify and maintain your Account settings, including but not limited to (i) setting your renewal options and (ii) ensuring your associated Payment Method(s) are current and valid.  Further, you acknowledge and agree that your failure to do so, may result in the interruption or loss of Services, and Marco shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same.

If for any reason Marco is unable to charge your Payment Method for the full amount owed for the Services provided, or if Marco is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to your Payment Method, you agree that Marco may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment. If you pay by credit card and if for any reason Marco is unable to charge your credit card with the full amount owed for the Services provided, or if Marco is charged back for any fee it previously charged to the credit card you provided, you agree that Marco may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment. You agree that the remedies Marco may pursue in order to effect payment shall include, but not be limited to, immediate cancellation without notice to you of any domain names or Services registered or renewed on your behalf. Marco reserves the right to charge you reasonable "administrative fees" or "processing fees" for (i) tasks Marco may perform outside the normal scope of its Services, (ii) additional time and/or costs Marco may incur in providing its Services, and/or (iii) your noncompliance with this Agreement (as determined by Marco in its sole and absolute discretion). Typical scenarios include, but are not limited to, customer service issues that require additional personal time or attention, fees incurred by third-party payment providers such as PayPal, Alipay, and Certegy (as defined in the Universal Terms of Service Agreement), fees incurred as the result of chargebacks or other payment disputes brought by you, your bank, or a Payment Method processor, and disputes that require accounting or legal services. These administrative fees or processing fees will be billed to the Payment Method you have on file with Marco. 

Marco may offer product-level pricing in various currencies; however, transaction processing is supported only in U.S. dollars and a select number of the currency options displayed on this Site ("Supported Currency" or "Supported Currencies"). If the currency selected is a Supported Currency, then the transaction will be processed in the Supported Currency and the pricing displayed during the checkout process will be the actual amount processed and submitted to your bank for payment. If the currency selected is not a Supported Currency, then the transaction will be processed in U.S. dollars and the pricing displayed during the checkout process will be an estimated conversion price at the time of purchase. In either case (whether the currency selected is a Supported Currency or not), if the transaction is processed in a currency that differs from the currency of your bank account, you may be charged exchange rate conversion fees by your bank.  In addition, due to time differences between (i) the time you complete the checkout process, (ii) the time the transaction is processed, and (iii) the time the transaction posts to your bank statement, the conversion rates may fluctuate, and Marco makes no representations or warranties that (a) the amount submitted to your bank for payment will be the same as the amount posted to your bank statement (in the case of a Supported Currency) or (b) the estimated conversion price will be the same as either the amount processed or the amount posted to your bank statement (in the case of a non-Supported Currency), and you agree to waive any and all claims based upon such discrepancies (including any and all claims for a refund based on the foregoing). In addition, regardless of the selected currency, you acknowledge and agree that you may be charged Value Added Tax ("VAT"), Goods and Services Tax ("GST"), or other localized fees and/or taxes, based on your bank and/or the country indicated in your billing address section.

Please refer to the Universal Terms of Service Agreement for further details regarding the individual Payment Methods referenced above.

(b) domain name renewal terms

All renewals will be subject to the terms of this Agreement, as it may be amended from time to time, and you acknowledge and agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement (as amended) for all renewed domains.  Domain name renewals will be non-refundable. If for any reason Marco is not able to take the payment from the Payment Method you have on file, and you fail to respond to our notices, your domain name registration will expire. It is your responsibility to keep your Payment Method information current, which includes the expiration date if you are using a credit card.

For certain ccTLDs (.am, .at, .be, .ca, .cn, .com.cn, .net.cn, .org.cn, .de, .eu, .fm, .gs, .it, .jp, .ms, .nu, .nz, .co.nz, .net.nz, .org.nz, .tc, .tk, .tw, .com.tw, .org.tw, .idv.tw, .uk, and .vg), renewal billing will occur on the first day of the month prior to the month of expiration.

For certain ccTLDs (.am, .at, .be, .ca, .cn, .com.cn, .net.cn, .org.cn, .de, .eu, .fm, .gs, .it, .jp, .ms, .nu, .nz, .co.nz, .net.nz, .org.nz, .tc, .tk, .tw, .com.tw, .org.tw, .idv.tw, .uk, and .vg), you must renew no later than the 20th of the month prior to the expiration date, or your domain name will be placed in non-renewal status. For some ccTLDs (.es) you must renew no later than seven days before the expiration date, or your domain name will be placed in non-renewal status.  When the domain name is in non-renewal status, you can renew the domain name only by calling Marco and requesting that the domain name be renewed. You cannot renew the domain name through your Marco Portal. If you fail to manually implement the renewal before the expiration date, the domain name will be cancelled and you will no longer have use of that name.

You agree that Marco will not be responsible for cancelled domain names that you fail to renew, either automatically or manually in the timeframes indicated in this Agreement. In any case, if you fail to renew your domain name in a timely fashion, additional charges may apply. If you signed up for privacy services, protected registration, or any other similar service, with your domain name registration, these services will automatically be renewed when your domain name registration is up for renewal, and you will incur the applicable additional renewal fee unless you cancel in advance. 

If you fail to renew your domain name in the timeframes indicated in this Agreement, you agree that Marco may, in its sole discretion, renew your expired domain name on your behalf. If Marco decides to renew your expired domain name on your behalf, you will have a Renewal Grace Period during which you may reimburse Marco for the renewal and keep your domain name. The Renewal Grace Period is currently twelve (12) days but subject to change under the terms of this Agreement. For certain ccTLDs (.am, .at, .be, .cn, .com.cn, .net.cn, .org.cn, .de, .eu, .fm, .gs, .it, .jp, .ms, .nu, .nz, .co.nz, .net.nz, .org.nz, .tc, .tk, .tw, .com.tw, .org.tw, .idv.tw, .uk, and .vg) there is no Renewal Grace Period after the expiration date of the domain name. If you do not reimburse Marco for the renewal during the Renewal Grace Period your domain name will be placed on Hold and flagged for deletion after which you will have a 30-day redemption period during which you may pay Marco a Redemption fee and redeem your domain name. The Redemption fee is currently $80.00 USD and is subject to change under the terms of this Agreement. If you do not redeem your domain name prior to the end of the 30-day redemption period Marco may, in its sole discretion, delete your domain name or transfer it to another registrant on your behalf.  During the redemption period your domain name may be parked. 

If your domain name is deleted, the Registry also provides a 30-day Redemption Grace Period during which you may pay Marco a redemption fee and redeem your domain name. The redemption fee is currently $80.00 USD and is subject to change under the terms of this Agreement. If you do not redeem your domain name prior to the end of the Registry's Redemption Grace Period the Registry will release your name and it will become available for registration on a first-come-first-served basis.

Renewal Grace Periods and Redemption Grace Periods vary for different ccTLDs. Please refer to the specific terms for the applicable TLD. In the event there is a conflict between the provisions of this paragraph and the ccTLD terms, the ccTLD terms shall control.

Our registration expiration notification policy and associated fees are described here.

3. term of agreement; transfers; domain tasting

The term of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect as long as you have any domain name registered through Marco.

You agree that you will not transfer any domain name registered through Marco to another domain name registrar during the first sixty (60) days after its initial registration date.

You further agree that you will not engage in "domain tasting" by using the five (5) day grace period in which a registrant may choose to cancel a domain name and get a full refund of the registration fee as a vehicle to test the marketability or viability of a domain name.  If Marco determines (which determination shall be made by Marco in its sole and absolute discretion) that you have been engaging in "domain tasting", then Marco reserves the right to (a) charge you a small fee (which fee shall be deducted from any refund issued) or (b) refuse your cancellation/refund request altogether. Marco will not charge you a fee if Marco cancels your domain name during the five (5) day grace period due to fraud or other activity outside of your control. The five (5) day grace period does not apply to Premium Domains, which are non-refundable.

You agree that Marco shall not be bound by (i) any representations made by third parties who you may use to purchase services from Marco, or (ii) any statements of a general nature, which may be posted on Marco's website or contained in Marco's promotional materials.

4. up to date information; use of information and expiration

You agree to notify Marco within five (5) business days when any of the information you provided as part of the application and/or registration process changes. It is your responsibility to keep this information in a current and accurate status. Failure by you, for whatever reason, to provide Marco with accurate and reliable information on an initial and continual basis, shall be considered to be a material breach of this Agreement and a basis for suspension and/or cancellation of the domain name. Failure by you, for whatever reason, to respond within five (5) business days to any inquiries made by Marco to determine the validity of information provided by you, shall also be considered to be a material breach of this Agreement and a basis for suspension and/or cancellation of the domain name. You agree to retain a copy for your record of the receipt for purchase of your domain name.

You agree that for each domain name registered by you, the following contact data is required: postal address, email address, telephone number, and if available, a facsimile number for the Registered Name Holder and, if different from the Registered Name Holder, the same contact information for, a technical contact, an administrative contact and a billing contact.

You acknowledge and agree that domain name registration requires that this contact information, in whole or in part, be shared with the registry operator. As required by ICANN, this information must also be made publicly available by means of Whois, and that the registry operator may also be required to make this information publicly available by Whois. Both Marco and the registry operator may be required to archive this information with a third-party escrow service. You hereby consent and give permission for all such requirements and disclosures. Further, you represent and warrant that, if you are providing information about a third party, you have notified the third party of the disclosure and the purpose for the disclosure and you have obtained the third party's consent to such disclosure.  Registrar will not process data in a way that is incompatible with this Agreement.  Registrar will take reasonable precautions to protect data from loss or misuse.

You agree that for each domain name registered by you the following information will be made publicly available in the Whois directory as determined by ICANN Policy and may be sold in bulk as set forth in the ICANN agreement:

  • The domain name;
  • Your name and postal address;
  • The name, email address, postal address, voice and fax numbers for technical and administrative contacts;
  • The Internet protocol numbers for the primary and secondary name servers;
  • The corresponding names of the name servers; and
  • The original date of registration and expiration date.
  • Name of primary name server and secondary name server.
  • Identity of the registrar.

You agree that, to the extent permitted by ICANN, Marco may make use of the publicly available information you provided during the registration process. If you engage in the reselling of domain names you agree to provide any individuals whose personal information you've obtained, information about the possible uses of their personal information pursuant to ICANN policy. You also agree to obtain consent, and evidence of consent, from those individuals for such use of the personal information they provide.

In order for us to comply with any current or future rules and policies for domain name systems including any rules or policies established by the CIRA or any provincial or federal government or by other organization having control or authority to establish rules or policies, you hereby grant to us the right to disclose to third parties through an interactive publicly accessible registration database the following information that you are required to provide when applying for a domain name:

  1. The domain or sub-domain name(s) registered by you;
  2. Your organization name, type and postal address;
  3. The name(s), position(s), postal address(es), e-mail address(es), voice telephone number(s) and where available the fax number(s) of the technical and administrative contacts for your domain or sub-domain name(s);
  4. The full hostnames and Internet protocol (IP) addresses of at least two (2) name server hosts (one primary and at least one secondary) for your domain or sub-domain name. Up to six (6) name servers may be specified. If a host has more than one (1) IP address, use a comma-separated list;
  5. The corresponding names of those name servers;
  6. The original creation date of the registration; and
  7. The expiration date of the registration.

We may be required to make this information available in bulk form to third parties. We may also transfer or assign this information to CIRA or such other third party as we may decide, in our sole discretion.

5. dispute resolution policy

You agree to be bound by our current Dispute Resolution Policy. This policy is incorporated herein and made a part of this Agreement. You can view the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy online. You agree that Marco may from time to time modify its Dispute Resolution Policy. Marco will post any changes to its Dispute Resolution Policy at least thirty (30) days before they become effective. You agree that by maintaining your domain name registrations with Marco after the updated policy becomes effective that you agree to the Dispute Resolution policy as amended. You agree to review Marco's website periodically to determine if changes have been made to the Dispute Resolution Policy. If you cancel or terminate your Services with Marco as a result of the modified Dispute Resolution policy, no fees will be refunded to you. You also agree to submit to proceedings commenced under ICANN's Uniform Rapid Suspension Systme, if applicable. 

You agree that if a dispute arises as a result of one (1) or more domain names you have registered using Marco, you will indemnify, defend and hold Marco harmless as provided for in this Agreement. You also agree that if Marco is notified that a complaint has been filed with a governmental, administrative or judicial body, regarding a domain name registered by you using Marco, that Marco, in its sole discretion, may take whatever action Marco deems necessary regarding further modification, assignment of and/or control of the domain name deemed necessary to comply with the actions or requirements of the governmental, administrative or judicial body until such time as the dispute is settled. In this event you agree to hold Marco harmless for any action taken by Marco.

You agree to submit, without prejudice to other potentially applicable jurisdictions, to the jurisdiction of the courts (1) of your domicile and (2) where registrar is located.

In the case of .ca domain names, you agree that, if your use of the service or the registration of a .ca domain name is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified by CIRA in their dispute resolution policy, in effect at the time of the dispute.

6. transfer of domain names; resale practices

If you transfer any domain name, you agree to provide the information required by, and to abide by, the procedures and conditions set forth in our Domain Name Transfer Agreement. You may view the latest version of our Domain Name Transfer Agreement online. In order to further protect your domain name, any domain name registered with Marco or transferred to Marco shall be placed on lock status. The domain name must be placed on unlock status in order to initiate a transfer of the domain name away from Marco to a new Registrar. You may log into your account with Marco at any time after your domain name has been successfully transferred to Marco, and change the status to unlock.

In the event you are purchasing a domain name on behalf of a third party, you agree to inform any customer of yours, who may be acquiring a domain name through you using Marco's registration services, that they are in fact registering their domain name through Marco and that Marco or its licensor is an accredited registrar with ICANN. You agree not to represent that you are an ICANN-accredited registrar or that you are in any way providing superior access to the ICANN Domain Name Registry. You also agree not to use the ICANN trademark logo in any of your promotional materials including your website.

You agree to obtain each of your customers' acceptances to the then current version of this Agreement, and to retain evidence of their acceptance for a period of not less than three (3) years. Should you require that your customers accept additional terms and conditions that are not required by Marco, you agree that such additional terms and conditions shall not conflict with this Agreement and the policies and procedures adopted by ICANN.

You agree that Marco is not lending you access to its registrar connections or its registry access, nor will you be deemed to be a registrar in your own right. Furthermore, you agree you will not attempt to gain access to Marco's registrar connections or registry access. You agree to provide complete, accurate and current data for each registrant to be added to a registry in accordance with ICANN requirements for inclusion in the Whois database.

You agree to provide your customers with adequate customer support, and to maintain contact with them with regard to providing a medium for them to communicate changes in the information they provided as part of the domain name registration process. Upon receiving corrected or updated information you will, within five (5) business days, provide such information to Marco so Marco may update its registration records. You will retain copies of all communications between you and your customers and will upon request provide Marco copies of same.

7. your obligations; suspension of services; breach of agreement

Your represent and warrant to the best of your knowledge, neither the registration of the domain, nor manner it is directly or indirectly used, infringes the legal rights of any third party.  You will indemnify and hold harmless the registrar and registry operator, and their directors, officers, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilites, costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising out of or related to the domain name registration.  This obligation shall survive expiration or termination of this Agreement or the domain name registration.

You agree that, in addition to other events set forth in this Agreement:

  1. Your ability to use any of the services provided by Marco is subject to cancellation or suspension in the event there is an unresolved breach of this Agreement and/or suspension or cancellation is required by any policy now in effect or adopted later by ICANN;
  2. Your registration of any domain names shall be subject to suspension, cancellation or transfer pursuant to any ICANN adopted specification or policy, or pursuant to any Marco procedure not inconsistent with an ICANN adopted specification or policy (a) to correct mistakes by Marco or the registry operator in registering any domain name; or (b) for the resolution of disputes concerning any domain name.

You acknowledge and agree that Marco and registry reserve the right to deny, cancel or transfer any registration or transaction, or place any domain name(s) on registry lock, hold or similar status, as it deems necessary, in its unlimited and sole discretion: (i) to comply with specifications adopted by any industry group generally recognized as authoritative with respect to the Internet (e.g., RFCs), (ii) to correct mistakes made by registry or any registrar in connection with a domain name registration, or (iii) for the non-payment of fees to registry; (iv) to protect the integrity and stability of the registry; (v) to comply with any applicable laws, government rules or requirements, requests of law enforcement, or any dispute resolution process; (vi) to comply with any applicable ICANN rules or regulations, including without limitation, the registry agreement; (vii) to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on the part of registry operator, as well as its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, and employees; (viii) per the terms of this Agreement; (ix) following an occurrence of any of the prohibited activities described in Section 8 below; (x) during the resolution of a dispute.

You agree that your failure to comply completely with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any Marco rule or policy may be considered by Marco to be a material breach of this Agreement and Marco may provide you with notice of such breach either in writing or electronically (i.e. email). In the event you do not provide Marco with material evidence that you have not breached your obligations to Marco within ten (10) business days, Marco may terminate its relationship with you and take any remedial action available to Marco under the applicable laws. Such remedial action may be implemented without notice to you and may include, but is not limited to, cancelling the registration of any of your domain names and discontinuing any services provided by Marco to you. No fees will be refunded to you should your Services be cancelled or terminated because of a breach.

Marco's failure to act upon or notify you of any event, which may constitute a breach, shall not relieve you from or excuse you of the fact that you have committed a breach.

8. restriction of services; right of refusal

You agree not to use the services provided by Marco, or to allow or enable others, to use the services provided by Marco for the purposes of:

  • The transmission of unsolicited email (Spam); and
  • Repetitive, high volume inquires into any of the services provided by Marco (i.e. domain name availability, etc.).

You acknowledge and agree that you are prohibited from distributing malware, abusively operating botnets, phishing, piracy, trademark or copyright infringement, fraudulent or deceptive practices, counterfeiting or otherwise engaging in activity contrary to applicable law, and you acknowledge and agree that the consequences for such activities include suspension of the domain name.

If you are hosting your domain name system (“DNS”) on Marco’s servers, or are using our systems to forward a domain name, URL, or otherwise to a system or site hosted elsewhere, or if you have your domain name registered with Marco, you are responsible for ensuring there is no excessive overloading on Marco’s servers. You may not use Marco’s servers and your domain name as a source, intermediary, reply to address, or destination address for mail bombs, Internet packet flooding, packet corruption, or other abusive attack. Server hacking or other perpetration of security breaches is prohibited. You agree that Marco reserves the right to deactivate your domain name from its DNS if Marco deems it is the recipient of activities caused by your site that threaten the stability of its network.

You agree that Marco, in its sole discretion and without liability to you, may refuse to accept the registration of any domain name. Marco also may in its sole discretion and without liability to you delete the registration of any domain name during the first thirty (30) days after registration has taken place. Marco may also cancel the registration of a domain name, after thirty (30) days, if that name is being used, as determined by Marco in its sole discretion, in association with spam or morally objectionable activities. Morally objectionable activities will include, but not be limited to:

  • Activities prohibited by the laws of the United States and/or foreign territories in which you conduct business;
  • Activities designed to encourage unlawful behavior by others, such as hate crimes, terrorism and child pornography; and
  • Activities designed to harm or use unethically minors in any way.

In the event Marco refuses a registration or deletes an existing registration during the first thirty (30) days after registration, you will receive a refund of any fees paid to Marco in connection with the registration either being cancelled or refused. In the event Marco deletes the registration of a domain name being used in association with spam or morally objectionable activities, no refund will be issued.

9. default settings; parked page

Choosing Your Domain Name Settings.  When you register a domain name with Marco, you will be prompted to choose your domain name settings during the checkout process.  If you plan on using another provider for your website or hosting needs, then you should enter the name servers of such provider when you choose your domain name settings.  This will direct your domain name away from Marco’s name servers.  If you are an existing Marco customer and have already set up a customer profile designating your domain name settings for new domain name registrations, you will not need to complete this step again during the checkout process.   

Marco’s Default Settings.  If you do not direct your domain name away from Marco’s name servers as described above, Marco will direct your domain name to a “Parked Page” (“Default Setting”).  You acknowledge and agree that Marco has the right to set the Default Setting. 

Parked Page Default Setting.  Marco’s Parked Page service is an online domain monetization system designed to generate revenue (through the use of pay per click advertising) from domain names that are not actively being used as websites.  If your domain name is directed to a Parked Page, you acknowledge and agree that Marco may display both (a) in-house advertising (which includes links to Marco products and services) and (b) third-party advertising (which includes links to third-party products and services) on your Parked Page through the use of pop-up or pop-under browser windows, banner advertisements, audio or video streams, or any other advertising means, and we may aggregate for our own use, related usage data by means of cookies and other similar means.  In addition, you acknowledge and agree that all in-house and third-party advertising will be selected by Marco and its advertising partners, as appropriate, and you will not be permitted to customize the advertising, or entitled to any compensation in exchange therefor.  Please note that the third-party advertising displayed on Marco’s Parked Pages may contain content offensive to you, including but not limited to links to adult content.  Marco makes no effort to edit, control, monitor, or restrict the content and third-party advertising displayed on Marco’s Parked Pages, and expressly disclaims any liability or responsibility to you or any third party in connection therewith.

Changing Marco’s Default Settings.  You may change Marco’s Default Settings at any time during the term of your domain name registration.

  1. Content Displaying On Your Parked Page.  You can not modify the content displaying on your Parked Page.  You may select one of the other options listed below.
  2. Participating In Domain Name Monetization.  If you wish to participate in the domain monetization potential presented by Marco’s Parked Page service, please review and consider purchasing our CashParking® service.   
  3. No Content.  If the options listed above are not acceptable to you and you would prefer that no content display on your domain name, please contact customer support.

Return To Parked Page Default Setting Upon Domain Name Expiration.  Upon domain name expiration, and regardless of how you use your domain name during the term of your domain name registration, your domain name will automatically return to the Parked Page Default Setting described above.  As used in this paragraph, “expiration” is deemed to include any “renewal period” or “redemption period” immediately after the domain name expires, but before the domain name is returned to the registry.  Once your domain name has returned to the Parked Page Default Setting described above, the only way to opt out of the Parked Page service is to renew, redeem, or re-register your domain name in accordance with Section 2(B), Domain Name Renewal Terms, of this Agreement.   

10. Domain Add-ONS

Business Registration:  Business registration allows You to display additional information about the business that is the basis of Your domain name, including, but not limited to, such information as Your fax number, street address, and hours of operation.

Certified Domains.  The certified domain service generally allow You to:  (i) put a Certified Domain Validation seal on Your website; and (ii) have Your domain name listed as "Certified", in WHOIS lookups on the Go Daddy website.   The Certified Domain Validation seal renews independently of Your domain. When You renew Your domain, You must also, when necessary, separately renew Your Certified Validation seal. However, the Certified Domain Validation seal can be cancelled independently of Your domain. If the domain is cancelled, the Certified Domain associated with the cancelled domain will automatically cancel.  The Certified Domain seal is a trademark of Go Daddy and is protected by copyright, trademark and other intellectual property laws. You may use the Certified Domain seal only in conjunction with the purchase of the Services set forth in the Agreement, and subject to the terms and conditions hereof. Other than provided for in this Agreement, You may not otherwise use, reproduce, or modify the mark for any additional promotional use, without the prior written approval of Go Daddy. Your right to the use of the Certified Domain seal is immediately terminated upon expiration or termination of this Agreement.

Expiration Consolidation.  You understand and acknowledge the expiration consolidation service may only be used to consolidate the expiration of .com and .net domain names. The service may not be used to consolidate domains that are on Registrar HOLD, Registry HOLD, or pending Transfer status. You acknowledge the service may only be used to push the expiration date of Your domains forward in time, at least one (1) month forward and no more than ten (10) years forward, and then, only for a period lasting less than twelve (12) months. Once the service has been used to consolidate domains, the new expiration date may not be reversed. To ensure the service is not abused or used as an alternative to renewals, you may only use the service on each domain once in any 12-month period. The service may only be used on domain names that have not passed their expiration date. In order to change the expiration date again, You will be required to renew the domain name first.  You further understand and acknowledge the service may only be used to coordinate domains where Go Daddy is the registrar of record. Domains not registered with Go Daddy must be transferred before Go Daddy can perform the Service. 

Backordering/Monitoring.  You agree a domain name that has expired shall be subject first to a grace period of twelve (12) days, followed by the ICANN-mandated redemption grace period of thirty (30) days. During this period of time, the current domain name registrant may renew the domain name and retain ownership. Go Daddy does not guarantee your backorder will result in you obtaining the domain name and expressly reserves the right to (a) refuse additional backorders or (b) cancel existing backorders at any time for any reason.  If your backorder is refused or cancelled, Go Daddy agrees to promptly refund any fees paid for such domain name backorder. The domain name may also be placed in a secondary market for resale through the Go Daddy Auctions® service.  In order for the backorder request to remain effective, you must have an active Go Daddy Auctions membership. After your first year of Auctions membership, you agree that unless otherwise advised, Go Daddy will automatically renew your Auctions membership using the payment method you have on file for so long as your backorder credit is active. You may learn more about Go Daddy Auctions by visiting the Go Daddy Auctions website. The domain name may also be subject to a drop pool process before it is available for purchasing. You understand Go Daddy and its registrar affiliates use Go Daddy's services, including backordering.  Therefore, the domain name may be registered with a different registrar, but can be managed through your Go Daddy account.  By using the Services, you will be able to, among other things:

  1. Change your backorder until you obtain a domain name. You will have the opportunity to change the credit to a different domain name until you successfully capture one. After three (3) years, if the credit is not used, Go Daddy reserves the right to remove the credit.
  2. Subscribe monthly to an expiring domain name list. You may also choose to purchase a subscription to a list of domain names expiring within the next five (5) days. If you subscribe to the expiring domain name list, you agree the payment method you have on file may be charged on a monthly subscription basis for the term of the Services you purchase.
  3. Select domain names off the expiring domain name list you would like to register. Each domain name you attempt to backorder will include the price of up to a one-year domain name registration, as set forth in subsection (i) above.
  4. Monitor your currently registered domain names for changes in registrar, status, expiration date or name servers at no additional cost.
  5. Subscribe to Domain Alert Pro which enables you to monitor any currently registered domain name, regardless of registrar, for historical tracking of status changes and designation of multiple email notification addresses.

Ownership Protection.  The ownership protection service generally allow You to: (i) protect against losing a domain name; (ii) disallow the transfer of a domain name while this Service is active on that name; and (iii) receive an annual domain name report detailing the status of all domain names protected under this Service.  Subject to applicable rules, domain names can be transferred from registrar to registrar and from registrant to registrant. However, the Service protects against and prevent both kinds of transfers. Once You have elected to purchase the Service for any and all domain names, the automatic renewal function will be activated for each domain name and those names will not be transferable until the renewal of the Service. Accordingly, You acknowledge and agree You have carefully considered the implications accompanying the purchase of the Service and understand the restrictions the Service will place upon Your ability to transfer any domain names for which You have purchased the Service. You further acknowledge and agree any domain name for which You have purchased the Service will not be transferable for any reason until the next regularly occurring renewal of such domain name, provided, You have previously elected to deactivate the Service for that particular domain name, which deactivation may not occur until the expiration of the current term of the Service. By way of example and not as a limitation, if You elect to purchase the Service for a domain name, which You have registered for a period of five (5) years, the Service will remain active for the same five (5) year period and You will not be able to engage in any transfer whatsoever of that domain name during such five (5) year period.

Transfer Validation. The transfer validation service is provided to help You keep Your domain name secure. By choosing to use the service, You are making an explicit and voluntary request to Go Daddy to deny all attempts to transfer Your domain name to another registrar, or to move Your domain name to another account, unless You verify each request as described herein. You will provide Go Daddy with a contact name, phone number and PIN for domain transfer validations. You will be contacted by Go Daddy when a domain transfer is requested for a domain name in Your Go Daddy account. When Go Daddy receives a transfer request, Go Daddy will call You to verify the transfer request. If Go Daddy can not reach You with seventy-two (72) hours of receipt of the transfer request, the transfer will be denied. If You do not provide the proper PIN, the transfer will be denied. When Go Daddy receives a change of account request, Go Daddy will call You to verify the change request. If Go Daddy can not reach You with seventy-two (72) hours of receipt of the change request, the change will be denied. If You do not provide the proper PIN, the change will be denied. Availability of Services are subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and each of Go Daddy's policies and procedures. Go Daddy shall use commercially reasonable efforts to attempt to provide certain portions of the Services on a twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week basis throughout the term of this Agreement and other portions of the service, during normal business hours. You acknowledge and agree that from time to time the Services may be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including, without limitation: (i) equipment malfunctions; (ii) periodic maintenance procedures or repairs that Go Daddy may undertake from time to time; or (iii) causes beyond the reasonable control of Go Daddy or that are not reasonably foreseeable by Go Daddy, including, without limitation, interruption or failure of telecommunication or digital transmission links, hostile network attacks, network congestion or other failures. You acknowledge and agree that Go Daddy has no control over the availability of the service on a continuous or uninterrupted basis.
