Domain Name Policy
- We are not a domain registrar; we use third party domain companies to buy domain names for our customers. We guarantee that domain names that are bought through us will work with BEGO.
- By ordering a domain name registration, you authorize BEGO to perform domain name registration on your behalf, by entering you into an agreement with your corresponding domain name registrar or registry.
- By ordering a domain name registration, you accept full responsibility for compliance with any applicable law as well as, if applicable, the registration requirements of ICANN and the respective registrars and registries which shall be considered part of this agreement.
- When we register a domain name on behalf of you, we will use the data that you entered in the order form to specify the domain owner. If you want to specify a different domain owner, you must notify BEGO about this by e-mail and wait for a confirmation before placing an order;
- When you order a domain name registration, you signify that the information that you provide is accurate and precise. You are also responsible for notifying BEGO about any changes of the domain name owner contact information.
- The transfer of domain name ownership to another person or a change in the domain name owner data is only possible upon request from domain name owner.
- Once you order a domain name, it may take up to three business days before the domain name becomes operational. Usually, the domain name will become operational within 24 hours after we have received the payment.
- To use domain names that have been bought through BEGO, you must have an active BEGO subscription.
- If you want to use the domain name purchased through BEGO also for e-mail or other purposes, this can be arranged for an extra fee.
Payment and refund policy
- Domain renewal fee may be charged up to 3 weeks before the domain name actually expires. This gives us an opportunity to save the domain name from being lost in an event of a failed payment.
- Your domain name will be renewed automatically as long as we receive timely payments for BEGO subscription and domain name registration.
- If we have not received the payment for the domain name at least ten days before the domain name expires, it will be deleted and lost.
- If we have not received a timely payment for a domain name, we may renew the domain name at our own expense and then use it at our own discretion for whatever purpose we see fit.
- You can cancel domain renewal and any future automatic payments from the BEGO user interface. Any payments that have been already made are non-refundable.
Domain name transfer from BEGO
- You can transfer any domain name that you have bought through BEGO to your own domain registrar account.
- Domain name transfer is done by transferring the domain name from BEGO account to your own account with the same registrar. Transfer between different registrars can be done on your own after you have the domain name in your own account.
- You expressly understand and agree that BEGO shall not be liable for any damages or losses resulting from a failure to renew, register or maintain any domain name that has been ordered through us.
Using your own domain name with BEGO
- By purchasing a domain name through BEGO, you agree to this policy. If you do not agree to our domain name policy, do not buy domain names through BEGO. You can use your own domain name that you have purchased somewhere else.
- If you choose to use your own domain name, you must take care of all the technical details concerning the configuration of your domain name. BEGO will provide you with the IP addresses and basic info on pointing the domain to our servers, the rest is up to you.
