Registration of top level and second level domain names is open to qualified organizations and individuals on a non-discriminatory, first-come first-served basis. There is no limit on the number of registered domains a single organization or person can hold.
Fees And Renewals
The annual domain registration fee is published at http://www.webmasters.com/domains/, and is due at the time of registration. Registration renewal fees are due within 30 days of the registration anniversary date each year. If a renewal fee is not paid within 45 days following the domain's expiration date, we reserve the right to make the domain available for registration to the general public.
All registrations are considered final and are not refundable after the transaction has been processed.
Free Domain Policy
The registration and annual renewal fee for one domain per hosting account will be refunded in the form of a discount off hosting at the time a Business Hosting Account for that domain is first opened with Webmasters.com, and is subsequently renewed each year. If a domain is registered or transferred after a hosting account is opened, the refund shall only be applied upon subsequent renewals, and not the initial registration fee. In the event a hosting account for a registered domain is no longer open, no refund shall be given. This offer is limited to retail customers only, and is applicable to the following domain extensions: .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .us, .web.st, .us.vu, .uk.vu, .us.fm, and .uk.fm.
Required Contact Information
All domain name registrations require valid owner and technical contact information. Any registrations containing invalid contact information will not be accepted. All current registrations with invalid contact information will be suspended until the contact information is corrected.
Renewal notices will be sent via email to the contact and billing address listed in your account manager 30 days prior to the expiration date of the registration. It is your responsibility to make sure your e-mail address is current, and is accepting mail.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Novus/Discover credit cards. Payment must be made online at the time of registration. In the event of a chargeback or credit card payment denial by a bank, the domain name registration will be cancelled, and the domain will immediately become available for registration to others.
A newly registered domain name will be activated within 48 hours of registration.
Acceptable Domain Names
Domain names can be from 1 to 62 characters in length (we do not recommend more than 23 characters), and may not begin or end with a dash (-) or contain any spaces between characters. Except for the dash (-) character, only alphanumeric characters A-Z and 0-9 are accepted. We reserve the right to deny registration of a domain name we deem offensive or inappropriate for any reason.
All registrants agree to use their domain name in a lawful manner consistent with generally accepted business and moral standards. Although we will not restrict free speech, we reserve the right to require a registrant to cease to use a registered domain name for a purpose that is deemed to be grossly offensive to a very large group of internet users.
Registrants also agree that, to the best of their knowledge, the name they are registering does not infringe on any trademark or violate any trademark and intellectual property law. If it is later found that a trademark infringement may have occurred, and a dispute arises, the registrant must agree to be bound by our Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy.
Use of any domain name for a purpose unlawful in the United States of America and any of its states is prohibited, and could cause deletion of your domain name.
The sending of unsolicited bulk email (spam) is also prohibited and constitutes a violation of the registration agreement.
WEBMASTERS.COM can in its sole discretion revoke, suspend, transfer or otherwise modify a domain name registration upon seven (7) calendar days prior notice, or at such time as we receive a properly authenticated order from a court of competent jurisdiction, or arbitration award, requiring the revocation, suspension, transfer or modification of the domain name registration. In the case of nonpayment, chargeback or other direct violation of these terms and conditions, registrant agrees that we can in its sole discretion revoke, suspend, transfer or otherwise modify a domain name registration without notice.
