Application and Renewal
Registrations for the .uk Domain Name extension are maintained for an
Application Period of two years. All other Domain Name extensions are
maintained for an Application Period of one year. Thereafter, the Domain
Name Registration Service shall automatically renew for a further Renewal Period of
two years in respect of .uk Domain Names; and/or one year in respect of all
other Domain Name extensions; until and unless terminated by you upon giving
us notice to terminate prior to the first anniversary of your Domain Name
Registration Service or prior to the anniversary of any Renewal Period.
Domain Name Services are maintained for a Service Period of up to one year
having a Renewal Date aligned with the Renewal Date of the Domain Name
Registration. Domain Name Services are charged on an annual basis, not on a
pro-rata basis. Domain Name Services ordered in the first three quarters of
the current Service Period will expire at the end of the current Service
Period. Domain Name Services ordered in the final quarter of the current
Service Period will run throughout the current Service Period and expire at
the end of the next Service Period. Thereafter, the Domain Name Services
shall automatically renew for a further Service Period of one year.
We shall send you a reminder prior to the Renewal Date. If you do not wish
to renew the Services, you must notify us within 30 days from the date of
the reminder, otherwise the Services will automatically renew.
Charges for all Domain Name Registration Services and all Domain Name
Services will be payable annually in advance.
You acknowledge that our acceptance of your Application for Domain Name
Registration Services shall not constitute confirmation from us that any
particular Domain Name is available for registration as this is controlled
by the relevant Registry.
To cancel existing Services you have with Kantara you must have authority
over the Service. By default, permission is granted to the person who
originally ordered the service, or the current contact person authorised by
A written request for cancellation of the service should be
sent to Kantara from the contact person by email or by letter on the
notepaper. In addition, to surrender registrations for .gov.uk and .ac.uk a
confirmatory letter to the registry, on letterhead, is also required from
the name owner, confirming the fact of the cancellation.
Save in the case of .gov.uk and .ac.uk Domain Names, in the event that a
Domain Name is not registered and/or the Registry refuses to register a
Domain Name, we will refund the Charges in respect of the Domain Name
Registration Services to you.
Applications for .gov.uk and .ac.uk Domain Names are subject to strict
eligibility criteria which require additional use of resources to deal with.
You acknowledge that you are responsible for ensuring that your application
for a Domain Name meets the eligibility criteria.
In the event that an application produces a rejected outcome we will work
with you, upon your request, to provide any further relevant, detailed
information to the Registry so that an appeal may be lodged.
We will not refund the Charges in respect of .gov.uk and .ac.uk Domain Name
