- Complete our application form in full;
- Read and agree with our service agreement;
- Submit the appropriate registration fee; and
- Satisfy any requirements pertaining to the domain name license being applied for, and any other requirements notified by us.
Submission of an application does not assure you of a domain name license, even if a preliminary check indicates domain availability.
Your application's success is fulfilled only if:
- Full registration fee has been paid and all cheques honoured by your bank and confirmed by our accounts department;
- Your application complies with the association requirements and policies of the applicable registry operator;
- The applicable registry operator approves your application and permits the issue of domain name license; and
- We have notified you in writing of the final approval of your application.

In any event, we shall not be responsible for any losses and damages that you may have suffered in reliance of your belief that your application would be successful.
21.6 Domain name licensing
The issue of a domain name license entitles you to status of licensee for the domain name. A domain name is not an item of property and has no 'owner'. It is classed as an entry on the database of the registry operator.
The terms application, registration, activation, transfer of (and so on) a domain name merely reflect the application, registration, activation, transfer (and so on) of a domain name license.
A domain name license is subject to its license terms. It may not be used in breach of those license terms, many of which are registry operator (and their relating bodies) requirements, beyond our control.
Ownership of all copyright and database rights is kept by the registry operator.
You should not rely on the continued provision of a domain name license as evidence of a grant or renewed grant of permission to the use of the same. It is your responsibility to ensure a domain name license is within bounds of registry operator (and their relating bodies) requirements. You hold full responsibility for the renewal of domain name licenses.
21.7 Domain name registration period
A domain name license has a fixed period once activated.
Some domain name licenses have a choice of periods, some are fixed. Our application form will indicate the periods available for application. The domain name license period (pending its approval) will be that applied for.
21.8 Registration renewal
You may renew your domain name license in accordance with these terms and those of the relevant registry operator.
You are solely responsible for renewing your domain name license. If you fail to do so prior to the end of previous license term your domain may become available for registration by third parties.
You release us from any potential claim arising from your failure to renew a domain name license.
We may elect to send notification of pending renewal as a courtesy, however:
- You irrevocably agree that you will have no claim against us if we do not provide notification, or if notification does not reach you. It is your sole responsibility to ensure your electronic contact method is correct, active and fully functional.
We will make an effort to advise the registrant of the need to renew a domain name, preferably at least 30 days prior to expiry, by at least:
- sending an email to the registrant's email address; and/or
- sending a notice to the registrant's postal address as recorded in the WHOIS information for that domain name.
You are not obliged to renew your domain name license, nor pay any fees associated, unless you choose to do so.
If you choose to renew your domain name license you shall:
- Agree to any fees required as directed;
- Agree to the latest service agreement as well as any related policies or requirements listed by the relevant registry operator; and
- Indicate the period for renewal from the available renewal periods as specified by us.
A renewal is only successful if:
- The renewal fee has been paid and honoured;
- Your renewal complies with the services agreement, polices and requirements of us and the relevant registry operator;
- The relevant registry operator approves the renewal request; and
- We have notified you in writing that your application for renewal has been approved.
The period of your renewed domain name license is taken to commence from the date of expiry of your previous license.
21.9 Registration transfer
You are able, at various times to process a change of your domain name license. These times are strictly limited to those mentioned within this document which includes the policies and requirements of the relevant domain registry(s).
21.10 Registrant transfer
A registrant transfer transfers ownership of a domain name license from one registrant to another. A registrant transfer consists of a transferor (old registrant) and a transferee (new registrant).
In order to successfully complete registrant transfer you must:
- Provide to us a complete Domain Transfer of Ownership form, as available on our website. The information on this form must be correct, valid and satisfy the requirements set out by the related registry operator;
- Ensure that the transferor pays any outstanding fees owing to us;
- Pay any specified fee's relating to the process of a registrant change;
- Supply satisfactory documentation identifying both the transferor and transferee; and
- Ensure that the Transferee, in accordance with the Domain Transfer of Ownership form acknowledges the entry of this service agreement, our policies, and any requirements/policies of the related registry operator.
The transferor releases us from any claims arising under or in relation to this agreement, their domain name license or its transfer as soon as the transfer is affected.
21.11 Registrar transfer in
You are able (subject to policy of the relevant registry operator) apply for the transfer of a domain name license from another domain registrar (company) to ours. A registrar transfer to us is treated as an application for registration in that all clauses in this document are equally applicable. By applying for registrar transfer you agree with this service agreement and any policies as listed by us or the relevant registry operator.
21.12 Registrar transfer out
As you are able to process a registrar transfer to us, you are also able to apply for a registrar transfer to another company. A transfer out is governed by the clauses of this document with reference to the specific section which pertains to the domain name which you are applying to transfer (.e.g. .com, .au, etc).
21.13 Privacy & WHOIS Service
When a domain name license is registered, certain information is collected for use on the WHOIS service. The WHOIS service allows internet users to query a domain name to find out the identity and contact details of the registrant. The public WHOIS service is a standard feature of domain name systems around the world and is subject to the relevant registry operator's policies and requirements.
For .au domain registrations please see auDA's WHOIS policy at https://www.auda.org.au/policies/index-of-published-policies/2014/2014-07/
All Private Registration applications are subject to relevant policies and requirements of the Private Registry Authority and based on your agreement to such policy. By applying and making use of Services provided either directly or through a third party of Private Registry Authority, you understand and agree to all policies at http://privateregistryauthority.com/terms.php, both provided and referred by the Private Registry Authority.
Reports regarding abuse relating to domain name registration, as well as infringement of trademark and/or third party rights may be reported by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All reports are reviewed by staff representatives of us, registrar staff (where applicable), and other third parties such as the Private Registry Authority. When required by law or the relevant registry, Private Registration services may be removed.
Any written correspondence or documentation, including any sent by facsimile and email to listed Private Registration addresses may be received by us, Registrar staff, and/or other third parties. Such correspondence or documentation may be forwarded at our discretion, or will be forwarded if required by law.
Private Registration services may cease or be terminated immediately if required by law, when such action is required in our discretion to comply with any legal obligation or to avoid being a third party to any action, in order to comply with any applicable registry rules, policies, or procedures, or if you fail to in our view comply with of any provision of this Agreement through your use of the Services.
Notwithstanding whether private registration services are active in the WHOIS service, you acknowledge that Registrant contact information may be supplied to registries (including ICANN) as required of us, the Registrar, and/or other third parties. While this would extend to all domain registration data that is regularly escrowed by all registrars by Agreement with ICANN, we acknowledge that underlying registrant data is escrowed rather than the information immediately available through private registration services, and that information displayed in the WHOIS service is unlikely to be affected unless required by law, unless we or the Registrar cease business, or immediately upon (or following) the termination of any Private Registration services.
Customer support may be provided by us in respect of Private Registration services.
21.14 Domain Parking
- Upon registration, the domain will be automatically placed on name servers provided by us, 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 our 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 us until you modify the name servers after the domain registration is complete, using your account manager.
- 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, we 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 us until you modify the name servers after the domain renewal is complete, using your account manager.
- The “coming soon” and/or “expired” pages may contain advertisements and other materials selected by us, in our sole discretion. This may include, but is not limited to third-party websites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines. We reserve the right to collect and retain all revenue obtained from such advertising and other materials.
- DNS Wildcard. In the event you utilize our DNS management services and fail to configure a wildcard DNS for your domain, we may insert wildcard DNS records to resolve subdomains of your domain that would not otherwise resolve. We point those subdomains to a web page that may contain advertisements and other materials selected by us in our sole discretion. This may include, but is not limited to, third-party websites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines.
21.15 Domain name cancellation
If your domain name license is cancelled for any reason, under these terms or registry operator requirement; a third party may register the domain name instead of you and you release us from any claim arising from the cancellation.
21.16 Domain Expiration Protection Service
Domain Expiration Protection ("DEP") is a service that prevents a domain name registered to you from becoming available to other parties for purchase if it is not successfully renewed prior to the expiration of its then-current term. In accordance with the DEP service, the domain name shall not expire and instead you will have one (1) year from the aforementioned then-current date of expiration of the domain name to renew the domain name (the "Expiration Period").
During the Expiration Period, the domain name will remain registered to you, but we may (i) lock the domain name and/or (ii) direct the domain name to an IP address designated by us, including, without limitation, to an IP address which hosts a parking, under construction or other page that may include promotions and advertisements for, and links to, a website we own and showing our products and service offerings, third-party websites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines, unless and until it is renewed by you along with the proper payment. Renewals of domain names during the Expiration Period will be subject to our then-current standard renewal fees. Only the registrant of the domain name will be permitted to renew the domain name during the Expiration Period and must do so over the phone by calling our Customer Service team. In the event you do not renew the domain name during the Expiration Period, the domain name will automatically be made available to other parties for purchase at the end of the Expiration Period.
21.17 Back Order Service
The Back Order service is supplied with the intention to monitor your back ordered domain name, and register the back ordered domain name on your behalf upon it becoming available through the respective registry. The domain will only become available if it is no longer registered - either because the previous registration has expired without renewal, or the domain name was deleted. All Back Order applications are subject to the full terms and conditions contained within this document.
You acknowledge that notwithstanding any term or representation to the contrary, the Back Order service cannot be supplied in relation to domain names which are identified as unsuitable by any applicable Registry or Registrar (such as Premium Domain names which are exempt from the Back Order service). If a Back Order application is processed in relation to any domain name which is subsequently identified as unsuitable by any applicable Registry or Registrar for whatsoever reason, you irrevocably agree that such processed application may be deleted and refunded.
Placing a Back Order does not in any way guarantee that the specified domain name will be registered to you at any time. We will make every effort to secure domain registration, subject to these terms (or the terms contained within this entire document). It is possible that the specified domain name will never become available for registration. This means that your Back Order may never be successful, no matter how long you retain the Back Order.
Upon application, the specified domain name will enter our Back Order system. Back Orders will be placed on a first come, first serve basis. Other clients of ours may place Back Orders for the same domain name. The first application will be treated with 100% priority. We may, or may not disclose that there is an existing Back Order for the specified domain name.
Cancellation - A Back Order can be cancelled at any time however no refund or account credit for funds paid, either in full or pro rata shall be given where the service supplied to you is functioning.
By placing a Back Order application you agree to:
- Indemnify and refrain from holding us responsible or liable in any way whatsoever if we are unable to register your Back Order application and specified domain name; and
- Abide by all terms, conditions, process and policies described within our full Service Agreement
Your Back Order is only valid for the period which commences from the date that your Back Order request is accepted by us and terminates on the expiration date of your Back Order service. It is entirely your responsibility to ensure the renewal of your Back Order service. Failing to renew your Back Order service prior to the expiration date may forego any priority for a domain name Back Order in the situation where several Back Order applications have been made for the same domain name.
21.18 Domain Pre-Registration
The Domain Pre-Registration service is available to register your intent to register a domain name. The domain will only become available once the TLD is available from Crazy Domains. We do not guarantee registration of your domain name at any stage of the pre-registration. Once the TLD becomes available from Crazy Domains you will be contacted via email regarding pricing and registration terms.
Once you domain is available for registration, registrations will be placed on a first come, first serve basis. Other clients of ours may place pre-registrations for the same domain name. The first application will be treated with 100% priority. We may, or may not disclose that there is an existing pre-registration for the specified domain name.
You understand other companies may have the same domain name on backorder in which case the domain may be taken. You understand we will try and get this domain name but there is no guarantee the domain will be available.
You understand we cannot guarantee if and when your domain will become available. Once the TLD becomes available in the future we will notify you via email.
Upon pre-registering a domain name you agree to comply with all of the associated registry rules and conditions once your domain is purchased.
Cancellation - A pre-registration can be cancelled at any time. Pre-registration is a free service so no refunds or account credit will be issued.

21.20 Domain redemption
Upon expiry of a domain name, the registrant is able to renew the domain within 30 days of expiry, stopping it from deleting any DNS records. In the event the domain name is not renewed within 30 days, the domain may be stored for a Redemption period by the domain name registry. A registry may store a domain name for a 30 day Redemption period. In order to recover a domain name during the Redemption period, registrants must apply to Crazy Domains to have the domain name reinstated at least 7 days prior to the end of the Redemption period. Upon expiry of the Redemption period domain names enter a PENDINGDELETE phase for 5 days where they cannot be recovered by registrants or registrars. The domain name is then deleted and made available for re-registration. Application to renew a domain name during the Redemption period incurs a fee (Currently $140 USD) which is collected by Crazy Domains on behalf of the registry. This fee includes the first year renewal of the domain name. Some registries do not have a Redemption period. To enquire whether a Redemption period applies contact Crazy Domains.
For more information on the lifecycle of a domain name, see https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/gtld-lifecycle-2012-02-25-en
