Eligibility, Registration and Account Security

Eligibility and Registration: This section describes the eligibility criteria we require from all of our users. When you register to use our Services, we need to make sure that you are able to legally contract with WebsiteBuilder, for example, you are old enough and not a person, or in a country, subject to sanctions which WebsiteBuilder is prohibited from contracting with.

Changes to the Terms and Services

We always want to deliver the best to our customers and must comply with law. This means that we might, every so often, need to make changes to our Services or this Agreement. Unless the change is required immediately for legal or security reasons, we will provide you with prior notice of the change and, if the change adversely impacts you, you will have a right to terminate the Services following the change.

Your License and Your Use of the Services

In exchange for the various rights WebsiteBuilder grants you under this Agreement, there are certain things we require from you and certain obligations and restrictions we need you to comply with. Most importantly, you need to sign up for a service plan to use our Services. Our plans have certain limitations you should be aware of that are further described at Our Services & Prices.

We also need to prohibit certain activities which could affect our other users or which are unlawful. You are required to use the Services in accordance with our Acceptable Use Policy.

Support

We provide 24/7 technical support by email, and 24 hour billing support by phone. You can purchase priority support to ensure your response is prioritized.

Term and Automatic Renewal

Our service plans are all for a fixed period of time (e.g. 1 month, 12 months or 24 months) unless otherwise expressly provided. To ensure your Services are uninterrupted, these terms will automatically renew 15 days before the end of your current service plan to ensure that your website does not get inadvertently shut off. This section explains this process in more detail.

Pricing, Billing and Payment

WebsiteBuilder offers a great range of service plans providing Services to suit everyone’s needs and at prices to suit everyone’s pockets. The service charges you pay are based on the service plan you choose and any additional services you order. All payments are taken, in advance, for the full term of your service plan (e.g., monthly, 12 or 24 months).

Cancellation and Termination

Even though we do not want you to, we know that one day you might want to leave WebsiteBuilder. You can cancel your account at any time by following the process described here and receive a pro-rata refund of fees paid for your remaining service term for the website builder only. We are unable to refund fees for additional services where you terminate without cause. If your use of the Services is in breach of key terms of this Agreement or would be detrimental to our servers or networks, WebsiteBuilder may terminate your use of the Services without refund.

Liability

WebsiteBuilder works hard to perform its Services to you and, if we do not or if something goes wrong, you may have a right to remedies from WebsiteBuilder.

Handling Disputes

We do our best to keep our customers satisfied and, if you have a complaint or concern about the Services you are receiving, we would like you to contact us. If WebsiteBuilder cannot adequately deal with your dispute, you may escalate your dispute to the courts or to an alternative dispute resolution body.

This does not affect your 30 day money-back guarantee and, therefore, if you cancel within 30 days of starting or renewing the Services, as a result of a change made by WebsiteBuilder, you will receive a full refund minus the Domain Fee (if applicable) as described in Section 7 below.

  1. Term and Automatic Renewal

    1. Initial Term and Automatic Renewal. The initial term of the Services is: (i) in respect of your service plan, the initial period you have chosen to pay for on the payments page at the time you purchased the Services (e.g. either 1 month, 12 months or 24 months); and (ii) in respect of all additional services, 12 months unless otherwise stated on the services & pricing page (the “Initial Term”). The Services will automatically renew for the same term (each a “Renewal Term”) as you initially ordered, as shall be further summarized for you in the Renewal Notice (described below). If you do not want your Services to renew, you must cancel before the end of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term or else your credit card will be charged in accordance with paragraph 6(d) (Pricing, Billing and Payment).

Details of our current service plans, and additional devices, are listed on Our Services & Prices page. WebsiteBuilder reserves the right to change prices or any other charges at any time. We will provide you with at least thirty (30) days’ notice before charging you with any price change on any six (6) month or longer term plans. It is your sole responsibility to periodically review billing information provided by WebsiteBuilder here, and other methods of communication, including notices sent or posted by WebsiteBuilder.

    4. Payments. You agree to pay WebsiteBuilder, during the Initial Term or each month as applicable depending on your choice of service plan, all fees for the Services, as set forth on the payments page at the time you order the Services. Prior to expiry of your Initial Term or current Renewal Term, for subscription plans with a term length of more than one (1) month, you will receive notice of the amount of fees due for the subsequent term via a Renewal Notice sent to you by email and/ or your control panel. As set out in Term and Automatic Renewal, Renewal Notices will not be provided to you if you are on a monthly plan. You acknowledge, agree, and authorize WebsiteBuilder to automatically charge the applicable fee to your credit card for each month or Renewal Term (as applicable), unless you cancel the Services. All charges will be taken fifteen (15) days prior to the date of renewal; for example, for monthly subscription plans, your credit card will be charged fifteen (15) days before the end of your monthly cycle for these Services. If the credit card on file with WebsiteBuilder has expired or does not permit automatic renewals, you must contact WebsiteBuilder to renew the Services. If you do not renew your Services will be suspended and after thirty (30) days, your account will be cancelled and your data will be deleted. You are responsible for ensuring that your billing information with WebsiteBuilder is accurate.

    5. Currency. WebsiteBuilder offers the ability to pay for Services in a number of different currencies. If your local currency is not supported by WebsiteBuilder, the price payable for the Services will be converted, using the applicable exchange rate, at the time of purchase. In the event of any refund of fees being due to you in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, such refund will be converted using the applicable exchange rate at the time of refund. WebsiteBuilder is not liable for any discrepancies or shortfalls in these amounts as a result of a change in the exchange rate.

    1. The laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts apply to this Agreement, including any dispute arising out of or in connection with it or relating to your use of the Services.

    2. If a dispute arising under or relating to this Agreement is brought for arbitration, it shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration conducted before a single arbitrator, chosen by WebsiteBuilder, pursuant to the commercial arbitration rules of the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and shall be administered by the AAA. The arbitration before the AAA shall proceed solely on an individual basis without the right for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of others. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this arbitration clause, but the arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. The arbitration will be held at the AAA location chosen by WebsiteBuilder in Massachusetts. In the event you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, WebsiteBuilder will pay as much of your filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is improper or not warranted, as measured by the standards set forth in the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b), then the payment of arbitration costs shall be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse WebsiteBuilder for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. If the arbitrator grants relief to you that is equal to or greater than the value of your demand, WebsiteBuilder shall reimburse you for your reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses incurred for the arbitration.

  1. Governing Law and Jurisdiction for users in the European Union

    1. For users in the European Union, this Agreement, and any non-contractual obligations arising out of, or in relation to it, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales subject only to any mandatory provisions of consumer law in the country in which you reside. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods as well as any other similar law, regulation or statute in effect in any other jurisdiction shall not apply.

    2. You and WebsiteBuilder irrevocably agree that the courts of the country in which you reside shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or its subject matter or formation.

    3. Alternatively, you may raise the dispute with an alternative dispute resolution body via the EU Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) Platform.

Further, you hereby consent to any and all such disclosures and use of, and guidelines, limits and restrictions on disclosure or use of, information provided by you in connection with the registration of a domain (including any updates to such information), whether during or after the term of your registration of the domain. Moreover, you hereby irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action that may arise or have arose from such disclosure or use of your Registration Information and the Additional Registration Information.

    4. Information updating and accuracy obligations. As a condition to continued registration of your domain, you must provide us with updated Registration Information within seven (7) days of any changes to such information. You may review, modify or update your Registration Information by accessing WebsiteBuilder's domain manager service, domain management console or similar service, made available at our website. In accordance with ICANN policies, you acknowledge and agree that if you willfully provide inaccurate information or fail to update your Registration Information within seven (7) days of any change, then you will be in material breach of this Registration Agreement and we may in our sole discretion cancel your domain registration. You further agree that your failure to respond within ten (10) days to any inquiry by WebsiteBuilder concerning the accuracy of the Registration Information or to contact WebsiteBuilder immediately upon discovery of any willful inaccuracy (including, e.g., phone number listed as 000-0000) associated with your domain registration shall constitute a material breach of this Registration Agreement and will be sufficient basis for cancellation of your domain registration. You further represent that you have obtained consent from any third-party individuals whose personal data you have provided as Registration Information.

    5. Information requirements for renewals. Upon renewal of your domain registration, the type of information you are required to provide may have changed. If you do not wish to provide the new required information, your domain registration may not be renewed.

    6. Ownership of data. You agree and acknowledge that WebsiteBuilder owns all database, compilation, collective and similar rights, title and interests worldwide in our domain database ("Domain Database"), and all information and derivative works generated from such Domain Database, which contains Registration Information and Additional Registration Information. You further agree and acknowledge that WebsiteBuilder may use the following information for those domain registrations for which we are the registrar: (a) the original creation date of the registration; (b) the expiration date of the registration; (c) the name, postal address, email address, voice telephone number, and where available fax number of the technical contact, authorized contact, zone contact and billing contact for the domain registration; (d) any remarks concerning the registered domain that appear or should appear in the WHOIS or similar database; and (e) any other information WebsiteBuilder generates or obtains in connection with the provision of domain registration services, other than the domain being registered, the Internet protocol (IP) addresses of the primary nameserver and any secondary nameservers for the domain, and the corresponding names of those nameservers. WebsiteBuilder does not have any ownership interest in your specific personal registration information outside of its rights in its Domain Database. WebsiteBuilder agrees to take reasonable precautions to protect your specific personal registration information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction.

    7. Registrant Verification. You understand and agree that Registrar is required to verify the Registered Name Holder's email address within 15 days of any registration, transfer, or change to the Registered Name Holder's contact information. The Domain Name Holder's failure to verify the contact information 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).

      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).

  6. Domain Privacy Service

    1. If you purchased domain privacy services ("Domain Privacy"), you agree that your Registration Information will be replaced in any public WHOIS search with information provided by WebsiteBuilder as determined in its sole discretion (the "Private WHOIS Contact Information").

    2. Although the Private WHOIS Contact Information will appear in any public WHOIS search result, you are solely responsible for resolving any and all monetary, creditor, or other claims that arise in connection with a legal or other dispute involving your domain name registration. Use of the Domain Privacy service in no way alleviates your obligation to provide valid and accurate Registration Information and to update and correct such information pursuant to the terms of this Registration Agreement.

    3. The Domain Privacy service is NOT a general mail forwarding service. You agree that you will not provide any third party with the Private WHOIS Contact Information for the purpose of having such third party transmit communications to you. WebsiteBuilder may immediately terminate the Domain Privacy service and, at its sole option, disclose the Registration Information in the event that you breach this Agreement.

    4. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, you agree that WebsiteBuilder may, but is not obligated to, review and forward communications in connection with your domain name that it receives. You hereby authorize WebsiteBuilder to receive, sort, open, forward, and destroy any and all mail sent to our address at our sole discretion. You specifically acknowledge that WebsiteBuilder is not obligated but may forward to you certified or traceable courier mail (such as UPS or Federal Express deliveries), legal notices, or first class U.S. postal mail; however, WebsiteBuilder will NOT forward "junk" mail or other unsolicited communications (whether delivered through fax, postal mail, or telephone), and you further authorize WebsiteBuilder to either discard all such communications or return all such communications to the sender. You agree that: (i) postal mail may be forwarded via regular mail forwarding or scanned and emailed electronically to the email address listed in the Registration Information; (ii) emails will be forwarded to the email address listed in the Registration Information; and (iii) callers will be directed to use the mailing or email address listed on the Private WHOIS Contact Information and we will forward such mail or email pursuant to the terms of this section; we will not relay phone messages to you. You agree to waive any and all claims arising from your failure to receive communications directed to your domain name but not forwarded or referred to you by WebsiteBuilder.

    5. If any domain name for which you are using the Domain Privacy service is transferred to another registrar, Domain Privacy will automatically cease and no refund will be given for any unused portion of the service.

    6. Failure to renew the Domain Privacy service while your domain name registration is still valid will result in the Domain Privacy being suspended, terminated or cancelled and your Registration Information will be displayed in any public WHOIS search. General pricing information for Domain Privacy is available here. Domain Privacy renewals after initial purchase will be at the standard list price, which is available by logging in to your account

    7. WebsiteBuilder expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without any liability to you whatsoever, to suspend or cancel your use of the Service and/or reveal the Registration Information in any public WHOIS search or to any third party at any time without notice to you:

      1. To comply with any applicable laws, rules, regulations or requirements, or with any subpoenas, court orders, official government inquiries or requests of law enforcement;

      2. To comply with ICANN's Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy;

      3. To resolve any and all third-party claims, whether threatened or made, arising out of your use of the Domain Privacy service, including without limitation, to avoid a dispute of any claim that the registered domain name violates or infringes a third party's trademark, trade name, or other legal rights;

      4. In the event you breach any provision of this Registration Agreement or any other agreement you've entered into with WebsiteBuilder, including, but not limited to, the Terms of Service;

      5. To comply with the rules, procedures, or practices of the registry that governs the domain name extension receiving the Domain Privacy service and to protect the integrity and stability of the applicable domain name registry;

      6. To avoid any financial loss or legal liability (civil or criminal) on the part of WebsiteBuilder, its parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, shareholders, agents, officers, directors, or employees;

      7. To prevent inappropriate activity that comes to WebsiteBuilder's attention, including without limitation if you are using Domain Privacy to hide your involvement in illegal or morally objectionable activities, including without limitation, activities that are intended to or otherwise: (i) appeal purely to the prurient interests of third parties; (ii) defame, embarrass, harm, abuse, threaten, or harass third parties; (iii) violate state or federal laws of the United States and/or foreign territories; (iv) involve hate crimes, terrorism, or child pornography; (v) are tortious, vulgar, obscene, invasive of a third party's privacy, racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable; (vi) impersonate the identity of a third party; (vii) harm minors in any way; or (viii) relate to or transmit viruses, Trojan Horses, access codes, backdoors, worms, time bombs, or any other code, routine, mechanism, device or item that corrupts, damages, impairs, interferes with, intercepts or misappropriates any software, hardware, firmware, network, system, data, or personally identifiable information.

    8. Pursuant to paragraph 3.7.7.3 of ICANN's Registrar Accreditation Agreement ("RAA"), you agree that if you license use of a Registered Name (as that term is defined in the RAA) to a third party, you are nonetheless the Registered Name Holder of record (as that term is defined in the RAA) and are responsible for providing the full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the Registered Name. A Registered Name Holder licensing use of a Registered Name according to this provision shall accept liability for any harm caused by wrongful use of the Registered Name, unless the Registered Name Holder discloses the current contact information provided by the licensee and the identity of the licensee within seven (7) days to a party that provides the Registered Name Holder reasonable evidence of actionable harm.

  7. Domain Parking

    1. Upon registration, the domain will be automatically placed on name servers provided by WebsiteBuilder, 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 WebsiteBuilder'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 WebsiteBuilder until you modify the name servers after the domain registration is complete, using your account manager.

    2. In the event your domain registration expires, your registration is no longer valid. If you are able to renew the domain name, you may update the domain to its original settings. After expiration, but prior to renewal, the domain may be pointed to an "expired" page (collectively, "parking a domain" or a "parked domain"). There is no charge for the parked domain. By not renewing the domain, WebsiteBuilder may place an "expired" page, and its associated contents, on the parked domain. You may change the name server configuration (or "un-park" the domain) after the renewal is complete. If you need to register name servers using the domains that you are currently renewing, the names will initially be parked with WebsiteBuilder until you modify the name servers after the domain renewal is complete, using your account manager.

    3. The "coming soon" and/or "expired" pages may contain advertisements and other materials selected by WebsiteBuilder, in WebsiteBuilder's sole discretion. This may include, but is not limited to third-party websites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines. WebsiteBuilder reserves the right to collect and retain all revenue obtained from such advertising and other materials.

    4. 404 Error Page. In the event you fail to configure a 404 error page, a default 404 error page will be configured by WebsiteBuilder to appear in the event an Internet user enters a URL related to your domain but for which no file is associated. By not configuring a 404 error page, you hereby consent to and authorize WebsiteBuilder's placement of a default 404 error page and its associated content on your website. WebsiteBuilder's 404 error page may contain advertisements and other materials selected by WebsiteBuilder in WebsiteBuilder's sole discretion. This may include, but is not limited to, third-party websites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines. You may change the 404 error page configuration at any time. WebsiteBuilder reserves the right to collect and retain all revenue obtained from such advertising and other materials.

    5. DNS Wildcard. In the event you utilize WebsiteBuilder's DNS management services and fail to configure a wildcard DNS for your domain, WebsiteBuilder may insert wildcard DNS records to resolve subdomains of your domain that would not otherwise resolve. WebsiteBuilder may point those subdomains to a web page that may contain advertisements and other materials selected by WebsiteBuilder in WebsiteBuilder's sole discretion. This may include, but is not limited to, third-party websites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines.

  8. Registration Renewal

    1. Renewal obligations. You are solely responsible for ensuring that any and all domains and additional services are renewed prior to their expiration, should you so desire their renewal. You may renew your domain at any time before the expiration date. WebsiteBuilder shall have no liability to you or any third party in connection with the renewal, including, but not limited to, any failure or errors in renewing the services.

      You may be notified at WebsiteBuilder'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.

    2. Autorenewal. You agree that if you paid for any services provided hereunder by credit card or other payment service (such as PayPal), you hereby authorize but do NOT obligate, WebsiteBuilder to automatically charge your credit card or payment service account and renew the applicable service(s) on or before their renewal date using the credit card or other acceptable payment information you have provided to WebsiteBuilder, unless you notify WebsiteBuilder that you do not wish to participate in WebsiteBuilder's automatic renewal process. WebsiteBuilder must receive notification of your intent to not renew (opt-out) no later than sixteen (16) days prior to the renewal date. In the absence of such notification from you, WebsiteBuilder will automatically renew, for a period of one (1) or two (2) years, as set forth by the applicable registry depending on the TLD or ccTLD of your domain name, any domain that is up for renewal and will charge the credit card or payment service account you have on file with WebsiteBuilder, at WebsiteBuilder's then current rates. You are solely responsible for the credit card or other payment information you provide to WebsiteBuilder and must promptly inform WebsiteBuilder of any changes thereto (e.g., change of expiration date or account number). If the credit card or payment service account has expired or is otherwise invalid, you are solely responsible for a failure to renew and WebsiteBuilder shall not be liable for your failure.

    3. Expired domain names. You agree that we may place our contact information in the WHOIS output for any expired domain name, as the failure to renew results in the immediate cancellation of registration and loss of all rights to the domain name. Should you choose not to renew your domain name, you agree that we may, in our sole discretion, renew and transfer the domain name to a third party on your behalf as an Expired Domain Transfer ("ED Transfer").

    4. New customers through domain auction or brokerage partners and/or ED Transfers. If you are registering a domain name that was registered with, and not yet deleted by, WebsiteBuilder at the time of your purchase, you acknowledge and agree that the term of your registration will be for a period of one year from the original expiration date for the domain name immediately prior to your purchase, as the registration is the result of an ED Transfer (defined above). You will not be compensated for the inability to use the domain from the time it was expired until the time you are able to use the domain in your account. NOTE: You may not transfer your domain name to another Registrar for sixty (60) days from the date of any previous transfer.

  9. Domain Dispute Resolution Policy

    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 WebsiteBuilder 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.

  10. Change of Registrant Of Domains

    1. Change of Registrant. Effective December 1, 2016, for all gTLDs, any material changes to a domain name registrant’s name, company, email address, or to the administrative contact email address (if there is no registrant email address) are subject to ICANN’s Transfer Policy (available at https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/transfer-policy-2016-06-01-en).

      We are required to deny a change of registrant for any of the following reasons:

      1. the domain name registration agreement has expired and the registrant no longer has the right to renew the domain name or to transfer the domain name to another registrar;

      2. the change of registrant was not properly authorized by the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant; or

      3. the domain name is subject to a domain name dispute proceeding, including, but not limited to, the following:

        1. Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) (https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/help/dndr/udrp-en);

        2. Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS) (https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/urs-2014-01-09-en);

        3. Registrar Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy (https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/tdrp-2012-02-25-en); or

        4. a court order.

          Unless a change of registrant is otherwise prohibited, the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant, or their Designated Agents, must confirm the change of registrant within 60 days of the request.

          Unless you opt out of the transfer lock when you request a change of registrant, you may not transfer your domain registration to another domain registrar for sixty (60) days following the change of registrant.

      4. Designated Agent. You hereby explicitly authorize us to act as Designated Agent to approve a change of registrant on behalf of the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant, consistent with the requirements of ICANN’s Transfer Policy (https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/transfer-policy-2016-06-01-en).

      5. Transfer of registration to another registrant. The entity or person named as the "registrant" at the time the controlling user name and password are secured shall be the registrant of the domain. You agree that prior to the effectiveness of any transfer of ownership of your domain to another entity, WebsiteBuilder reserves the right to enforce any amount published for the transfer of ownership of a domain. You further agree that, as a condition of any such transfer of ownership of the domain, the party to which you seek to transfer your domain shall agree in writing (electronic acceptance is acceptable) to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Registration Agreement. Your domain will not be transferred until we receive such written assurances (or reasonable assurance as determined by WebsiteBuilder in its sole discretion) and actual payment of the transfer fee, if any is imposed. You acknowledge and agree that if you attempt to transfer your domain registration without paying WebsiteBuilder the amount published for the transfer of ownership of a domain, or if the entity to which you seek to transfer your domain fails to agree in writing to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Registration Agreement, any such transfer will be null and void, and will result in your domain registration being revoked without a refund of any charges you have incurred in attempting to register or transfer that domain.

      6. When changing the name of registrant within WebsiteBuilder, you agree that at WebsiteBuilder's discretion, the domain name may be changed back to the registrant listed immediately prior to the change upon written (email is acceptable) request within five (5) days (or such reasonable time as determined at WebsiteBuilder's discretion) by registrant that was listed immediately prior to change or in the event of suspected fraud in connection with the change of the registrant name as determined by WebsiteBuilder in its sole discretion.

      7. Transfer of registration to or from another registrar. When transferring a domain name into WebsiteBuilder as the new registrar of record and simultaneously changing the name of registrant or subsequently changing the name of registrant, you agree that the domain name may be re-transferred back to the losing registrar upon written (email is acceptable) request by registrant that was listed immediately prior to transfer or upon request by losing registrar or in the event of suspected fraud in connection with the transfer as determined by WebsiteBuilder in its sole discretion. At the time of transfer into WebsiteBuilder, you must complete all required information requested through the online transfer application, i.e., contact information, nameserver information, etc. WebsiteBuilder may elect to accept or reject your domain name transfer application for any reason at its sole discretion. You are not entitled to any refund in relation to the domain name transferred to another registrar.

      8. RESTRICTIONS ON REGISTRAR TRANSFERS. For generic top-level domains governed by ICANN, you agree that you may not transfer your domain registration to another domain registrar during the first sixty (60) days from the effective date of your: (1) initial domain registration or (2) completion of a domain transfer into WebsiteBuilder. If you choose to utilize our transfer lock service, you agree to provide written authorization (electronic acceptance is acceptable) to WebsiteBuilder for the transfer of the domain to another registrar and agree to pay any and all fees that may be charged by WebsiteBuilder to effect the transfer. You agree your request to transfer your domain to another registrar may be denied pursuant to the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (available here).

        For country-code top-level domains, as established by each registry, you agree that you may not transfer a domain to another registrar during the first sixty (60) days of the initial registration or after expiration of the domain. You agree your request to transfer your domain to another registrar may be denied pursuant to the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (available here).

      9. Transfer Lock. You agree that WebsiteBuilder may, but is NOT obligated to, automatically opt your domain name into its Transfer Lock service to help protect against unauthorized transfers (applicable for .com and .net domain names). WebsiteBuilder does NOT warranty NOR guarantee the service will prevent any unauthorized transfer of domain name(s). You may log in to your account and disable this service at anytime if you do not wish to use the service. WebsiteBuilder will NOT be liable for any inconvenience this may cause you to properly transfer your domain. You are solely responsible for a failure to transfer the domain. WebsiteBuilder shall not be liable for your failure.

  11. Agents and Licensing

    You agree that, if you are registering a domain and listing someone other than yourself as the registrant, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind the person or entity listed as registrant as a principal to this Registration Agreement, including the applicable Dispute Policy. The name listed as registrant of the domain or the appropriate officer of a listed Organization (at WebsiteBuilder's discretion) may individually choose to move the domain into another account for full access to the domain, irrespective of wishes of agent/account owner/other listed contacts on that particular domain (e.g. admin, billing). Further, you agree that if you license the use of the domain registered to you to a third party, you nonetheless remain the domain holder of record, and remain responsible for strict compliance with this Registration Agreement, including but not limited to payment obligations, and providing (and updating, as necessary) accurate Registration Information and Additional Registration Information. Further, you accept liability for any actions of the licensee using the domain unless you promptly disclose the current contact information provided to you by the licensee and the identity of the licensee to any party providing reasonable evidence of actual harm.

  12. Representations and Warranties

    In the event that, in registering the domain, you are providing information related to a third party, you hereby represent and warrant that you have (a) provided notice to that third party of the disclosure and use of that party's information as set forth in this Registration Agreement, and (b) that you have obtained that third party's express consent to the disclosure and use of that party's information as set forth in this Registration Agreement. You further represent that, to the best of your knowledge and belief, neither the registration of the domain nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used infringes the legal rights of a third party. You further represent and warrant that all information provided by you in connection with your domain registration is accurate.

  13. Indemnification

    1. Indemnification of WebsiteBuilder. You will indemnify, hold harmless, and defend WebsiteBuilder and its subsidiary and parent entities, predecessors, successors, affiliates, and assigns, the Registry Administrators, and all of their respective current and former officers, directors, members, shareholders, agents, and employees (the "Indemnified Parties") from any and all Claims. "Claim" means any action, cause of action, suit, proceeding, claim, or demand of any third party (and all resulting judgments, bona fide settlements, penalties, damages, losses, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees and costs)), which arises out of: (a) your breach of this Registration Agreement or any of WebsiteBuilder's policies applicable to this domain registration or related services, (b) the operation of your domain, (c) any negligent act or omission by you, or (d) any third party claim, action, or demand related to the registration or use of the domain registered in your name (and this indemnification is in addition to any indemnification required under the Dispute Policy). "Reasonable attorneys' fees and costs" as used in this Section 13 includes without limitation fees and costs incurred to interpret or enforce this Section 13. WebsiteBuilder may, at its expense, employ separate counsel to monitor and participate in the defense of any Claim. WebsiteBuilder will provide you with reasonably prompt notice of any Claim.

    2. Indemnification of ICANN and Registry Operators. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless ICANN, Registry Operator(s) (including but not limited to VeriSign, Inc., Public Interest Registry, Afilias Limited, SITA, NeuLevel, Inc., and NeuStar, Inc.) and their respective subcontractors, shareholders, directors, officers, employees, affiliates and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs and any other expenses arising out of or related to your domain registration and any disputes regarding same. Some Registry Operators may not allow this indemnification provision to apply, as contained herein; in such cases, this provision is in effect to the full extent permitted by law as applicable to such Registry Operator.

    3. These indemnification obligations shall survive the termination or expiration of this Registration Agreement.

  14. Warranty Disclaimer; Limitation of Liability

    1. Disclaimer of warranty. WebsiteBuilder MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THIS REGISTRATION AGREEMENT OR ANY OF ITS SERVICES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. FURTHER, WITHOUT ANY LIMITATION TO THE FOREGOING, WebsiteBuilder MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER THAT REGISTRATION OR USE OF A DOMAIN UNDER THIS REGISTRATION AGREEMENT WILL PREVENT CHALLENGES TO YOUR DOMAIN REGISTRATION, OR FROM SUSPENSION, CANCELLATION OR TRANSFER OF ANY DOMAIN REGISTERED TO YOU.

IN NO EVENT SHALL WebsiteBuilder's OR ANY OF SUCH INDEMNIFIED PARTIES' MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR REGISTRATION OF THE DOMAIN THAT IS AT ISSUE FOR THE THEN-CURRENT PERIOD OF REGISTRATION.
