When you register a domain, you enter into a contract with a registrar, either directly or through a domain reseller. This contract gives you certain rights and certain obligations.

General Rights

For Bravenet's specific terms of service, refer to

  • Typically, you can apply for a domain either for your own use or for the use of a 3rd party that you're acting as an agent of.
  • Typically, 61+ days after registering a domain, you can transfer that domain to another registrar (there is a fee associated with this, however).
  • You will have a period before the domain expires in which you can renew your domain without interruption, and without running the risk of losing that domain name. Your registrar will contact you through the contact information you have provided to let you know when your domain enters this period. After this period, the domain name is available to anyone who wants it.
