This Registration Agreement ("Agreement") sets forth the terms and conditions of your use of SilentRegister.com.'s ("SilentRegister.com") domain name registration services to register an Internet domain name, your registration of that domain name, as well as other SilentRegister.com domain name related services. In this Agreement "you" and "your" refer to each customer and "we", "us" and "our" refer to SilentRegister.com. This Agreement explains our obligations to you, and explains your obligations to us for various SilentRegister.com services. By selecting our service(s) you have agreed to establish an account with us for such services. When you use your account or permit someone else to use it to purchase or otherwise acquire access to additional SilentRegister.com service(s) or to cancel your SilentRegister.com service(s) (even if we were not notified of such authorization), this Agreement covers such service or actions. By using the service(s) provided by SilentRegister.com under this Agreement, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement, the accompanying dispute policy and any pertinent rules or policies that are or may be published by SilentRegister.com. SilentRegister.com at times may 'resell' the services of other registrars or 3rd party providers, you are bound by their terms and conditions when this situation occurs.

This Agreement will become effective when accepted by SilentRegister.com. SilentRegister.com may elect to accept or reject your domain name registration application for any reason at its sole discretion, such rejection including, but not limited to, rejection due to a request for registration of a prohibited domain name.


1. Our Services:

All domain name registrations we register for TLDs are not effective until we have delivered the domain name registration information you provide us to the registry administrator for the TLDs, as applicable, and the registry administrator puts into effect your domain name registration. Currently, the registry administrator for the .com, .net and .org TLDs is Network Solutions, Inc.

You agree and acknowledge that SilentRegister.com is not liable or responsible in any way for any errors, omissions or any other actions by the registry administrator arising out of or related to your application and receipt of, or failure to receive, a domain name registration.

You further agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the registry administrator and its directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages and reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising out of, or related to, your domain name registration.


2. What We Do Not Do:

We cannot and do not check to see whether the domain name you select, or the use you make of the domain name, infringes legal rights of others. We urge you to investigate to see whether the domain name you select or its use infringes legal rights of others, and in particular we suggest you seek advice of competent counsel. You may wish to consider seeking one or more trademark registrations in connection with your domain name. You should be aware that there is the possibility we might be ordered by a court to cancel, modify, or transfer your domain name. You should also be aware that if we are sued or threatened with lawsuit in connection with your domain name, we may turn to you to hold us harmless and to indemnify us.


3. Fees:

As consideration for the domain name registration services and/or other services provided by SilentRegister.com to you, you agree to pay SilentRegister.com, prior to the effectiveness of the desired domain name registration, the applicable service(s) fees for the initial registration of the domain name and, should you choose to renew the registration, subsequent renewals of the registration. All fees are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if your domain name registration is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of your then current registration term. Your requested domain name will not be registered unless we receive actual payment of the registration fee, or reasonable assurance of payment of the registration fee from some other entity (such reasonable assurance as determined by SilentRegister.com in its sole discretion). As further consideration for the SilentRegister.com service(s), you agree to: (1) provide certain current, complete and accurate information about you as required by the registration process and (2) maintain and update this information as needed to keep it current, complete and accurate. All such information shall be referred to as account information ("Account Information"). In the event of a charge back by a credit card company (or similar action by another payment provider allowed by us) in connection with the payments of the registration fee for your domain name registration, you agree and acknowledge that the domain name registration shall be transferred to SilentRegister.com as the paying entity for that registration to the registry. We will reinstate your domain name registration solely at our discretion, and subject to our receipt of the initial registration or renewal fee and our then-current reinstatement fee, currently set at $250 USD. You will be notified via an email message or via your account information when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid within the time specified in a second notice or reminder regarding renewal, your registration will be cancelled. Payment must be made by credit card or such other method as we may indicate in the registration application or renewal form. We will renew your name for you provided your credit card or other billing information is available and up to date, unless you instruct us otherwise within the time specified. If your billing information is not accurate and you wish to renew your domain name registration, we will contact you to update this information and charge you accordingly.


4. Domain Name Dispute Policy:

The Dispute Policy can be found at by clicking here. Certain disputes, as specified in the Dispute Policy, are subject to that Policy. You agree that, if the registration or reservation of your domain name is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy in effect at the time your domain name registration is disputed by the third party. You also agree that, in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold SilentRegister.com harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy.


5. Transfer to another Registrar:

You agree that you may not transfer your domain name registration to another domain name registrar during the first sixty (60) days from the effective date of your initial domain name registration with SilentRegister.com. You agree to provide authorization to SilentRegister.com for the transfer of the domain name to another registrar and agree to pay any and all fees that may be charged by SilentRegister.com to effect the transfer.
