Kite Terms Of Service For UK Domain Registration
Kite is a Channel Partner for Nominet, the UK’s domain name registry. As such we provide an intermediary service between you, the Registrant, and Nominet and we aim to provide you with a first class service. Below is a summary of how we endeavour to achieve that for you.
What We Need From You, the Registrant
In order for us to register a domain name for you, we need to have full and accurate contact details for you and your business or organisation (where applicable). This helps us to ensure that Nominet’s data is up to date and complete and that we comply with Nominet’s Data Quality Policy. To that end we will need you to supply us with the following information before we can proceed with the registration of a domain name for you:
- Registrant or Organisation name
- A contact name as the primary contact for the domain name
- Email address
- Organisation type (e.g. UK Individual, UK Limited Company, UK Sole Trader)
- Trading name (if applicable)
- Organisation number (depending on organisation type)
- Telephone number
- Full address
As well as collecting all of the pertinent contact details noted above we also need to make you aware of Nominet's Terms and Conditions of Domain Name Registration so please take the time to read them and we will ask you to confirm that you are happy to accept these terms before we proceed with your domain name registration.
The cost for a 2 year registration or renewal of any of the domain name types noted above is £ 20 Plus VAT. We do not make any charge for transferring a domain name to a new Registrar should you chose to move to a different provider, neither will we make any charge if you simply want your domain name to be de-tagged (removing us as your domain name renewal provider).
What Service Do We Provide For Our Fee? (Registration / Renewal / Expiration)
Our fundamental service provision is the registration of your domain name but once registered we will also manage the domain name’s renewal or expiration for you.
We will inform you of an impending requirement to renew your domain name by emailing you approximately two weeks before the domain name is due to expire and will re-send the renewal reminder a further 2 times until confirmation of receipt and a decision to renew or let the domain name expire has been received. If confirmation of your intention to renew or let the domain name expire has not been received by email after the third attempt, a final email will be sent informing you that we will leave the domain name to expire. We will leave the domain name associated with our Nominet Tag until it is automatically removed having moved through Nominet’s suspension and cancellation process.
