We guarantee that the server and connectivity will be available at least 99.99% per calendar month, excluding scheduled maintenance outages and upstream provider issues. If the monthly outages exceed the maximum allowed .01%, Oscartechs will credit 5% (five percent) of the client’s monthly fee per additional 30 minutes of outages, up to 100% (one hundred percent), excluding any overage fees, of the monthly fee. If you have one plan across multiple servers, the average uptime across shall determine the uptime percentage. In order to qualify for a credit, it must be requested at the end of the calendar month, within 30 days, and your account must be in positive standing.
Full backups are made weekly, and backups of new/changed data made nightly. No guarantees are made of any kind, either expressed or implied, as to the integrity of these backups. Backups are made for server restoration purposes only. It is the clients’ responsibility to maintain local copies of their web content any information. The “Backup Manager” is included in each hosting plan and client can use this tool to back up their files. If loss of data occurs due to an error of Oscartechs, we will attempt to recover the date for no charge to the client. If data loss occurs due to negligence of client in securing their account or by an action of the client, Oscartechs will attempt to recover the data from the most recent archive for a € 60.00 fee.
As consideration for Oscartechs’s domain name registration, administration, and renewal services, you agree to pay all initial registration fees and applicable renewal fees with respect to each TLD name registered in Euro at the time of registration or renewal.
All fees are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if your domain name registration is suspended, canceled, or transferred prior to the end of your then current registration term. We also reserve the right to change domain name registration and renewal fees at any time for any reason at our sole discretion. If you do not pay any initial fees or renewal fees when due or your credit card charge is not accepted for any reason within three (3) business days after any initial fee is due or within ten business days after any renewal fee is due, or in the event of any charge back of any payment at any time, we will have the right to transfer ownership to us of all TLD names for which payment was not received, without further notice. In the case of renewals, we will notify the billing contact on the WHOIS directory with respect to the TLD name eligible for renewal, and it shall be your responsibility to ensure that all such fees are paid prior to the expiration of the term of registration of each TLD name you wish to renew. You agree that we shall have no liability whatsoever with respect to any such cancellation. We reserve the right to adjust our registration and renewal fees prospectively upon fifteen (15) calendar days prior notice.
No Guarantee of Registration or Renewal
You agree that Oscartechs cannot guarantee you will be able to register or renew any specific domain name, even if your inquiry indicates that domain name is available. Even if a domain name appears to be available, you acknowledge that Oscartechs cannot know with certainty whether or not another party is simultaneously seeking the domain name you are seeking to register, or whether there are any inaccuracies or errors in the domain name registration or renewal process or in the WHOis and other databases. You also agree that Oscartechs may elect to accept or reject your application for registration or renewal for any reason at its sole discretion. Such rejection may include, but is not limited to, rejection due to a request for registration or renewal of a prohibited domain name. You also agree that Oscartechs is not liable or responsible in any way for any omissions, errors or any other actions by any registry administrator arising out of or related to your application for and registration of, renewal of, or failure to register or renew a particular domain name. You also agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the applicable registry administrator and its officers, directors, employees, and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, expenses, and costs (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising out of, or related to, your submission for and registration, renewal, or failure to register or renew a particular domain name or names.
Term & Registration Period.
The term of this Agreement will continue to be in force during the time in which you have any TLD name registered through us. At your discretion, we will register each TLD name for a period of one (1) to ten (10) years for .com, .net and .org.
After Expiration of The Term of Domain Name Registration.
You agree that we may, but are not obligated to, allow you to renew your domain name after its expiration date has passed. After expiration of the term of a domain name registration services and before deletion of the domain name in the applicable registry’s database, you acknowledge that we may direct the domain name to name-servers and IP address(es) designated by us, including, without limitation, to no IP address or to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine that may display advertisements, and you acknowledge that we may either leave your WHOIS information intact or that we may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name so that you are no longer the listed registrant of the expired domain name.
After expiration of the term of domain name registration services, you acknowledge that certain registry administrators may provide procedures or grace periods during which expired domain name registrations may be renewed. You acknowledge that you assume all risks and all consequences if you wait until close to or after the end of a domain name registration term to attempt to renew the registration. You acknowledge that we, for any reason and in our sole discretion, may choose not to participate in a post-expiration renewal of a domain name and that we shall not be liable therefore. You acknowledge that post-expiration renewal or redemption processes, if any, involve additional fees which we and your Primary Service Provider may determine. You acknowledge and agree that expired domain name(s) may be made available to be registered or re-registered to any party at any time.
You agree that after expiration of the term of a domain name registration we may, for a period of 30 days, either i) remove the domain name from the zone of the top-level-domain (meaning that the domain name will no longer resolve), or ii) direct the domain name to name-servers and IP address(es) of website(s) designated by us, including, without limitation, to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine. You agree that either are functionally equivalent to ICANN’s or a registry’s redemption grace period, which would normally occur after deletion. If we exercise our rights under this provision, and if you do not transfer the domain name services to another registrar nor contact us to pay for and renew the domain name prior to the end of the 30 days, you agree that you have abandoned the domain name.
After this 30 day period, you agree that we may, possibly via a sub-contractor, solicit and provide for a third party to pay to renew the domain name’s registration term and to allow such a third party to assume complete control over the domain name services as a registrant name.
Alternatively, if you do not contact us to renew the domain name registration services during the 30 day period described above, and if we are unable or unwilling to allow such a third party to assume complete control over the domain name services as a registrant, you agree that we may either (i) delete the domain name at any time thereafter or (ii) that we may pay the registry free or otherwise allow it to continue to be registered with the WHOIS information previously provided by you and pointing to the name-server(s) and IP address(es) designated by us, and that we will not remove it from the TLD zone. In the latter event, the name will be designated as being in the extended redemption grace period (“ERGP”), and you will be allowed to assume, during the first 90 days of the then extant registration term, complete management of the domain name services, including the right to control the DNS information, provided that you pay a fee of €200 After the end of the 90-day period, if you do not exercise your rights under this provision, you agree that you have abandoned the domain name services, and relinquish all rights and use of the domain name services, and that you are no longer the registrant of the domain name, and that we may list ourselves or another party as the registrant of the domain name in the WHOIS information. If we exercise our rights under this provision and you do not wish to be listed as the registrant and you wish to forego your option under this provision to pay to renew the domain name registration services for the then-current registration term, you may notify us before the end of the 90-day period and request that we remove your information from the WHOIS record for the domain name, in which case we, or a third party we designate, will be listed as the registrant, and in which case you relinquish all rights and control over the domain name services, and in which case we may i) continue to point the domain name to IP address(es) designated by us, or ii) we may delete the domain name from the applicable registry’s database.
