By ordering Private Domain Name Registration Services from Fasthosts Internet Limited. ("Fasthosts"), you ("you" or "Customer") agree to the terms and conditions set forth herein. The provisions contained in these Terms and Conditions for Private Domain Name Registration (the "Agreement") incorporate and are supplemental to Fasthosts General Terms and Conditions of Service, by which you are also bound, to the extent they are not modified by this Agreement.


    1. The Agreement governs the provision of Private Domain Name Registration Services (the “Services”) to the Customer by Fasthosts. The Services comprise the registration and renewal of domain names using contact information provided by Fasthosts, as described below. Such information will appear in the public WHOIS database on your behalf.

    1. During the registration process, you will be able to subscribe to the WHOIS Privacy Service. Fasthosts will not own any Private Domain Name registered on your behalf under this Section. Any costs incurred by Fasthosts to obtain and/or maintain the Private Domain Name on your behalf shall be charged to you.
    2. You authorise and direct Fasthosts to display alternative contact information in the public WHOIS database, including names, postal address, phone number, and email address, as more particularly outlined above.
    3. You authorise and direct Fasthosts to process communications directed to you at the contact information displayed in the public WHOIS database as follows:
      1. Fasthosts corporate address will be the postal address displayed in the public WHOIS database for the Private Domain Name. You hereby authorise Fasthosts to receive, sort, open, forward, and destroy any and all mail sent to Fasthosts on your behalf in its sole discretion. First class mail, mail received via certified mail or courier or similar services will be opened and all such mail that can be scanned will be scanned and sent to you via the email address associated with the Fasthosts account for the Private Domain Name. You acknowledge that you will have five (5) calendar days from the date such mail is sent to you via email to request in writing that a copy of such scanned mail be forwarded to you via postal mail. You acknowledge that unless you direct us otherwise in writing within such five (5) calendar day period, unless they are legal documents, all such mail will be destroyed five (5) calendar days after a scanned copy is sent to you via email. All mail that is unable to be scanned will be forwarded to you at your expense at the postal address associated with the account for the applicable domain name.
      2. Fasthosts reserves the right to charge you for, and you are responsible for paying, all fees and costs associated with Fasthosts forwarding postal mail. Fasthosts further reserves the right to charge an administrative charge of £5.00 per item forwarded. You authorise Fasthosts to apply any such charges to your credit card pursuant to the Fasthosts Terms and Conditions.
    4. You hereby waive any and all claims arising from your failure to receive communications directed to your domain name contact information displayed in the public WHOIS database which shall not forwarded to you by Fasthosts. You acknowledge and agree that you may not receive all communications sent to you at the contact information listed in the public WHOIS database. You further acknowledge and agree that Fasthosts disclaims any and all loss or liability that may result from your use of the Services and/or your failure to receive important correspondence sent to you at the contact information displayed in the public WHOIS database, including, but not limited to, legal notices or UDRP complaints.

    2. You warrant to Fasthosts that any Domain Name you may seek to register through Fasthosts does not violate the rights of any third party, in particular trademark rights, and that you have taken reasonable steps, including but not limited to searches of the applicable trademark registries, to assure that this is the case.
    3. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Fasthosts, its officers, directors, employees and agents, with respect to any and all damages, losses, claims or expenses incurred with respect to or arising out of claims of third parties concerning your use of the Services or the Private Domain Name.
    4. You acknowledge and agree that Fasthosts has the absolute right and power, as it deems necessary in its sole discretion, without providing notice and without any liability to you whatsoever, to (1) reveal to third parties the contact information provided by you to Fasthosts in connection with the account for the applicable domain name, (2) populate the public WHOIS database with your name, primary postal address as provided by you to Fasthosts, or (3) terminate your subscription to the Services:
      1. if, in Fasthosts sole discretion, you violate the terms of the Fasthosts Terms and Conditions;
      2. if any third party claims that the domain name violates or infringes a third party's trademark, trade name or other legal rights, whether or not such claim is valid;
      3. to comply with ICANN policies or requirements, including but not limited to the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and to comply with Nominet’s UK Domain Name Dispute Resolution Service;
      4. to comply with any applicable laws, government rules or requirements, court orders, requests of law enforcement or government agencies; or
      5. if any third party threatens legal action against Fasthosts that is related in any way, directly or indirectly, to the domain name, or claims that you are using the domain name registration in a manner that violates any law, rule or regulation, or is otherwise illegal or is in breach of a third party's legal rights.
  4. Dispute Resolution

    1. This Agreement shall be interpreted under the laws of England and Wales.
