Domain Name Terms.

Expiring & renewing domain name registrations

You will receive an invoice for the renewal of domain names at the beginning of the calendar month before the expiration month of the domain (for example, if a domain expires on 16th October, you will receive an invoice on 1st September).

We require all domain names to be purchased via Direct Debit to ensure swift payment to avoid potential service disruption.

Charges for transferring/cancelling domain names

Burstfire does not charge for the transferring away of a domain, or for the closing of a domain name package.

Some registrars charge a fee to transfer domains. Where applicable, these charges will be passed on to you at cost value.

  • Burstfire will consider all requests for domain name registrations and will accept or reject them in accordance with the guidelines laid down by Nominet and eNom
  • Burstfire will submit all requests for domain registrations upon receipt of payment
  • Domain names are registered with the relevant naming authority under the details as submitted by the client. Once payment has been made, the domain becomes the property of the client, managed by Burstfire on their behalf
  • Burstfire reserves the right to halt the registration or transfer/release of a domain name should there be any outstanding monies due
  • The client shall maintain all future registration payments as they become due for their domain name. These payments will be made at the rate due on renewal, as expressed by the invoice sent prior to renewal.
  • Domain names are registered on a first-come basis, and until the registrant receives confirmation of the registration, there is no guarantee that the name will be registered on behalf of the registrant.
  • Burstfire may cancel or not process any domain registrations where:
    • the registration of the name is in conflict with the governing body's guidelines
    • a conflict of rights to a particular name may occur
  • Burstfire does not accept any responsibility for the use of registered domains, especially where there may be conflict over rights to ownership
  • Burstfire will do all it can to ensure that the registrant's details are submitted correctly, but will not be held liable under any circumstances for loss of profit suffered by the registrant
  • The registrant agrees that all details submitted in respect of domain registration are true and correct
  • The registrant must be able to demonstrate (should the need arise) that the registration of the domain name and its use thereafter will not infringe the legal rights of any third party
  • The registrant indemnified Burstfire from any legal proceedings and costs that arise as a result of the registration of a domain name
  • Any data submitted which pertains to the registration of a domain name will not be made available to anyone other than that which is made public by the relevant domain registering body
  • Transfers of domain names will be undertaken as soon as possible, but Burstfire shall not be held responsible for any losses incurred by the registrant during the time taken to release the domain. This service is provided by Burstfire free of charge to the registrant, except where registrars charge for this, where Burstfire will pass these charges on at cost value
  • Burstfire reserves the right to make alterations to these terms and conditions at any time

Please note that once a request has been completed, Burstfire cannot offer a refund for the purchase of a domain name.
