13. Domain Name Services

Domain Name Registrars

Best Way Websites is NOT a domain name registrar.  However, we may have vendor relationships with domain name registrars.

Choosing a Domain Name Registrar

You may register your domain with any registrar that you choose and manage your domain from your chosen registrar.  In such cases, Best Way Websites is NOT RESPONSIBLE to keep your domain name secured.  You must keep your domain name registered and pay for its annual renewal and you will have to point your domain name to our appropriate hosting servers yourself.  We can provide assistance with you for this service, but sometimes we may charge administrative fees for the time required to do for you.

Note that your registrar should help you with this without cost.

Free Registration Services

Best Way Websites often provides free registration services for one TLD (Top Level Domain) per account holder.  We may also provide ongoing domain name renewal service for our customers as long as their account payments are current.

Professional Domain Name Management

If you subscribe to Best Way Websites professional domain name management services (free or paid), Best Way Websites will ensure that your domain(s) registration payments are made yearly on your behalf.  In many cases, one TLD will be free and there will be an annual fee for additional domains added to your account.

Ownership & Transfers of Your Domain(s)

In NO CASE does Best Way Websites claim ownership of your domain(s).  We may deny the transfer of your domains to another registrar if your account is not current and fully paid, however.  If you account is current, you may request the transfer OUT of any or ALL of the domains that we manage in your behalf and Best Way Websites will comply and cooperate fully with any registrar that you choose.

Domain "PUSHES" to Your Account

In the case that you have an account with the same domain name registrar that we use for your domain, we are often able to PUSH the domain(s) to you without you needing to pay fees for transfer.

Domain Transfer Fees

Best Way Websites does not charge administrative fees for transfers OUT from accounts that we manage, but you will be required to pay a fee to your chosen registrar to transfer a domain from a different registrar to them.  If we are able to PUSH your domain instead of authorize and assist with a transfer, you may be able to avoid additional domain transfer fees.

Legal Disputes

Most often instigated for trademark or sales mark violations, you may discover that your domain name(s) are subject to a legal dispute or demand to release and transfer your domain to another party.

If Best Way Websites is made a party to any legal action by virtue of one of your domain name registrations, you agree to be responsible for all of Best Way Websites’s costs and legal fees and to indemnify and hold Best Way Websites harmless from any action.

If Best Way Websites is notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding your domain name, Best Way Websites may, at its sole discretion may suspend your ability to use, modify or transfer your registration records until the dispute is settled.

You must notify us immediately if you lose the rights to a domain name registered by Best Way Websites for you.
