The Great Afilias .INFO Landrush Is HERE!!!
And like the Great Oklahoma Landrush back in 1889, its going to be a wild ride! Registration Technologies hopes you'll let us help to smooth the bumps. As a small company, Registration Technologies has attracted less interest, thereby creating an opportunity for our customers.
How so? Because of the way Afilias is conducting their selection, the fewer names a registrar submits, the greater the odds of each submitted name being selected. We won't be submitting hundreds of thousand of names. And we won't be submitting duplicate names. 80% of our Sunrise submissions actually won!
While we can't promise the same results in Landrush, it is a good example of how a smaller queue can raise odds, helping you win the name you want.
So give us a try! Remember, you pay only a small submission fee. If your name doesn't win, you pay nothing else.
.INFO Domain Name Submission
- A "submission fee" is a fee paid to send a request for a .INFO domain name to Afilias, the .INFO registry. This is not a registration fee and does not pay for a domain name.
- We charge a non-refundable submission fee that decreases with volume. This fee is paid at the time you request a submission and is not refunded unless,
due to our error, your name is not submitted. This fee will not be refunded simply because your name was not selected.
- Submission fees are charged per account, not per order. Therefor, as you place more orders, you continue to receive pricing based upon volume from your earlier orders.
- We will only accept a name for submittal once. Each submittal we make will be unique, dramatically increasing your odds of victory.
- Unlike many of our competitors, we will not place any type of credit hold on your credit card beyond the submission fees and we won't
charge you for registration in advance. We will only charge your card for the fees due at submission time.
- We are not responsible for your typographical and other errors and will neither refund submittal fees nor waive registration fees because you made
an error entering your domain names. Please check your names carefully before submitting them. Our order system gives you a chance to make
a final review of your order before you place it, so please take advantage of this to double check your names.
- Registration Technologies, Inc., shall not be liable for any damages of any type beyond the fee charged for your submittals if your names are not
submitted. We reserve the right to not submit a name for any reason. If we decide not to submit your name or if we fail to submit
them due to our error, we will refund your submittal fee. Please see An Important Note About Trademark Domains below
for an important detail of this policy.
An Important Note About Trademark Domains
We have received many inquiries about Afilias' policy on the (potentially) fraudulent trademark registrations which have been made under the Sunrise period.
We have no special knowledge of what Afilias will or will not do other than what they announce to the press. Our understanding as of August 23rd is that
their most recent announcement is that they will challenge apparently fraudulent Sunrise registrations in December, at the end of the challenge period.
It is apparently unstated how and when successfully challenged names would be made available.
Possibly due to this uncertainty, we are frequently asked if we will accept submissions for names already registered, in case Afilias decides to accept
these during the Landrush period. We honestly know of no plan Afilais has to do that, but because it is such a common request we have decided to honor it.
We strongly encourage you to check Afilais' whois to see if the names you want are already registered.
If we are unable to submit these already registered names, we (within 30 days of Afilais announcing results) will refund your submittal fee for those names we could
not submit. However, because this policy may produce a lot of names we can not submit, we will charge a processing fee of 3% of the submittal fees only
of names we can not submit because they are already registered. The 3% processing fee will be accessed against the least expensive submittals. This represents a portion
of our costs in processing these highly speculative names.
.INFO Domain Name Registrations
- Registration Fees are fees charged to actually pay for a domain name registration.
- Registration fees are due only if your domain wins. You will have 5 business days to pay for the domain. After you pay for the domain, you
become the registrant. You do not become the registrant until you have paid for the domain in full.
- We accept payment by credit card (Visa, Mastercard and American Express), by bank wire transfer and by certified or bank check. We do not accept personal or company checks.
- You are obligated to pay for each domain you submit if it wins. You may not decide you didn't want that domain after all and not pay for it.
- Registration fees are non-refundable.
- If you fail to pay for the submitted domains within 5 business days, Registration Tehnologies, Inc., in our sole discretion, shall have the option to
pursue collection activity, cancel or liquidate the domain names, or any combination of those options.
- Registration Technologies, Inc., reserves the right to adjust prices at any time. If we lower registration fees, your fees will be reduced. If we raise
them, you will be liable for the higher registration fee only for submittals requested after the fee increase is announced on our website.
- All registrations are subject to our registration agreement, available from our home page.
- First 10 submissions are USD 7.00 each
- The next 140 submissions are USD 5.00 each
- All other submissions are USD 3.50 each
- Therefor, 10 submissions are $70.00. 11 submissions are $75.00. 150 submissions are $770.00. 200 submissions are $945.00.
- .INFO Landrush domains are registered for USD 40.00 per year for 5 years. Therefore, each winning name shall be billed at USD 200.00.
