The applicant should pay the initial registration fee to Registry immediately after verifying that the Domain Name is registered using our searchable WHOIS, and the credit card charges (if applicable) are approved through the appropriate channels. Registry may suspend or delete domain names for which the registration or renewal fees have not been confirmed as being paid.
All registration and renewal fees paid to Registry are non-refundable, except for those fees paid for domain name deleted within the first five (5) days grace period following the initial registration.
Once registered, the Applicant is the registrant of the Domain Name, and assumes all responsibility for any future obligations, trademark disputes, maintenance fees etc. required to maintain or to modify the Domain Name.
In the event of dispute of ownership or control of a domain, Applicant agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy found on the Registry’s official website.
The Applicant warrants to Registry that the details submitted by the Applicant to Registry are true and correct, and that future additions or alterations to those details will be true and correct.

Spam Policy: We reserve the right, in extreme circumstances, to revoke without refund any domain name services (Domain Registrations, E-mail Forwarding/Domain Forwarding), which, in our judgment, has been used for any unlawful purpose, including theft of email service, or as a source of unsolicited bulk email or as an address to use for replying to unsolicited bulk email.
This spam policy does not apply to email return addresses used without the owner’s knowledge or consent, however.
No sub-domains can be set up through the Registry Domain Name Forwarding services. For example, "mail.yourdomain.lc" cannot be set up on our DNS to be forwarded to another domain name, such as “www.realname.com.”
Domain Name Forwarding will only work when "www.yourdomain.lc" or "yourname.com" (without the WWW) is entered in the browser address window. No other DNS entries will be configured in the DNS records of Registry.
When changing the registrant and contact information, including the addresses, the current registrant will need to supply Registry with a signed approval on letterhead or notarized letter for the domain name registrant changes. All domain name transfer from one registrant to another must be approved by the current domain name registrant.
A domain name can only be modified/transferred by one of the contacts listed under the registered domain name, or by the sponsoring registrar.
Each registrant is allowed free domain modifications via the automated registrar's interface. Registry reserves the right to assess modification charges against the registrant in cases of excessive modifications.
Registry reserves the right to modify or to make additions to its domain name service policies at any time without notice.
1.Registry will not guarantee that the Domain Name being applied for will be registered for the applicant.
2. Registry does not accept the responsibility for the use of any Domain Name for any conflict with trademarks, registered or unregistered, or with rights to names in other contexts.
3. Registry may attempt to avoid the registration of Domain names that are potentially disputable, but will not be held responsible in the event that a dispute does arise. Registry is entitled to reject an application, which it considers as being offensive, unsuitable or likely to be involved in a trademark dispute.
4. Registry may change the terms and conditions of this contract at any time. All accounts will be subject to the terms and conditions current at the time of the registration, renewal or transfer.
Disputes between Domain Name Holders and Third Parties
The applicant acknowledges that any third party may, for whatever reason, challenge the use by the applicant of the domain name before an Administrative Domain Name Challenge Panel (ACP) in accordance with the WIPO ACP rules.
The applicant further acknowledges that the decisions of an ACP may determine rights of applicant or other parties or both to the use of a particular domain name, and that, with respect to its right to use a particular domain name or names, it will be bound by ACP decisions.
