Domain Name Terms & Conditions

Welcome to our Domain Name Terms & Conditions. These are our Terms for the use of our Domain Name solutions. By visiting our website or using our services, you agree to the Terms set out below. Last updated 10th September 2019.

Domain Name Registrations

To register a domain name, please either visit Our Domain Registration Service or contact a member of the Webforward team with the domain that you would like to register. If you are a new customer, we will ask you for your contact and billing information at this stage. If you are an existing customer, you can also purchase Domain Names via your My Account section.

Please note, that when you register a domain name with us, you also agree to Nominet’s domain name registration Terms and Conditions: http://www.nominet.org.uk/go/terms

Domain Name Charges and other information:

  • Domain names registered with Nominet (the .UK registry) are £9.99 (plus VAT) per annum
  • We register domain names for a minimum period of one year. Domains can be registered for a maximum period as allowed by the registrar.
  • New customers will receive a 30-day invoice from our system upon purchase. This can be paid by Direct Debit, Bank Transfer, Paypal or Debit/Credit card
  • Existing customers will be billed 90 days in advance of the domain renewal date
  • If a domain name cannot be registered, there will be no charge
  • We do not charge any fees to transfer your domain away to another provider (TAG change)
  • Where we are charged a fee by Nominet (The .UK registry) for services such as registrant changes, we will pass these charges on at cost price. We do not charge any additional administrative charges and will always confirm the amount in advance.
  • We are unable to refund any domain names that are unwanted if they have been automatically renewed.

Renewing Domain Names

All domains will renew yearly unless you have selected another length of time during your domain registration. We will send out a reminder email for your domain renewal ninety, sixty and thirty days before it is due to expire. We cannot take responsibility for your domains failure to renew if your contact details are incorrect or if we have received non-payment of your invoice.

By renewing your domain name, you agree to the registrar's terms and conditions.

If you do not wish to renew your domain name, please let us know in writing at least thirty days before it is due to expire. You can do this by emailing hello@webfwd.co.uk.

Expiring Domain Names

If you do not renew your domain before it's an expiry date (either by non-payment or incorrect details) it's renewal will be suspended. You will have a thirty-day grace period to re-register the domain name at its original cost.

Any domain names that have failed to renew will go into a sixty-day retention period where it will become available for re-registration by other parties. We cannot accept any liability if your domain enters this retention period. We also cannot guarantee that you will be able to re-register your domain while it is in this period. There will be a charge of £60+VAT to register a domain that is in a retention period.
