1. Introduction
1.1 In addition to the General Terms, these terms and conditions govern the use of the Digital Puppy domain registration and hosting services. By contracting with Digital Puppy for the services a Client will be lawfully regarded as having agreed to their use of the services specified being governed by this Agreement.

2. Domain Registration
2.1 Digital Puppy registers domains on the Internet through the relevant governing bodies and hosts websites and related material on the Digital Puppy server(s) on behalf of Clients. These terms and conditions apply to the use and registration of domain names and the web hosting services offered by Digital Puppy.
2.2 Digital Puppy registers domains through approved Domain Registrars, such as OpenSRS (for gTLDs). Digital Puppy may, at its discretion use other approved entities for registration, but in general may limit domains offered based on availability from the registrar concerned.
2.3 Digital Puppy’s hosting and free registration is sold as a bundled package and cannot be separated, i.e. Digital Puppy will not pay for registration if it is not combined with any of their hosting products.
2.4 The Client will be bound by the terms and conditions of the relevant domain name space (e.g. .com or .co.za) under which any domain name registered on its behalf falls, and should become familiar with them. Digital Puppy may post links to these terms and conditions on the Digital Puppy Website purely as a convenience to the Client.
2.5 Where Digital Puppy is acting as a registrar or reseller in registering a domain name for the Client, the Client may be required to agree to further terms. Digital Puppy will provide the Client with a link to these terms, which are incorporated into this Agreement by reference.
2.6 Digital Puppy will strive to ensure that registration and subsequent DNS propagation is effected in the shortest period of time. However, Digital Puppy cannot be held liable for any delays that may accompany the registration of domains. Initial Setup fees are non-refundable. Domain Name Registration fees constitute a once-off payment subject to certain renewal charges.

3. Free Domain Registration
3.1 Domain registration may be offered free of charge with Hosting products, depending on the nature and type of TLD (Top Level Domain). This offer is based on the assumption that the domain (and site content) will be hosted with Digital Puppy for a reasonable period. Digital Puppy reserves the right to, at their discretion, charge a parking fee where a minimum period (3 months) has not been observed on the Hosting product before downgrading to a Parking product. The fee will depend on the type of domain and applicable administration fees. Waiving such fees will be entirely at Digital Puppy’s sole discretion.
3.2 Digital Puppy reserves the right to charge a domain registration fee (in arrears) for any domain name which is registered as a FREE domain with a hosting package that is cancelled (or the domain is transferred) within 6 months of sign up. Such fee(s) will be invoiced exclusively at Digital Puppy’s discretion, and no leniency extended to Clients on previous occasions will in any way prejudice Digital Puppy’s right to enforce this clause. Such fees must be settled before any domain transfer can be effected with the applicable registrar.
3.3 Digital Puppy will not tolerate any abuse of their free registration policy. Any such abuse will result in the immediate termination of accounts concerned and Service Agreement, as well as possible further action to recover applicable costs from the Client.
3.4 Digital Puppy only offers Free Domain registration for “.co.za” domains with new hosting package signups, or Domain Parking offered as a “Free Gift” in ClientZone. Other TLDs or gTLDs are not included in the Free Domain Registration offer. Digital Puppy will register domains as per the clauses above, but will not be responsible for any further costs in relation to the domain, such as Annual Renewal Fees, Redemption fees or any other fees which may become payable in respect of domain ownership. Clients are exclusively responsible for such fees, and Digital Puppy will not enter into any disputes resulting from non-payment. Should such domains be automatically renewed, Clients will be billed for such renewal without exception. Clients not wanting to continue with a specific domain must ensure that cancellation is effected before any such renewal is actioned by Digital Puppy with the registrar concerned.

4. Domain Transfer
4.1 Digital Puppy will transfer existing (registered) domains from existing hosting providers to Digital Puppy’s DNS and web servers. Upon requesting the transfer, and accepting the relevant Service Terms, the Client explicitly agrees that it has the authority to do so, being the registrant of the domain in question, or having been nominated as an agent of the registrant. The Client thereby indemnifies Digital Puppy from any disputes regarding ownership of the domain and any claims as a result thereof.

5. Cancellation
5.1 Cancellation will be dealt with as per the General Terms.
5.2 Cancellation, by the Client or Digital Puppy, will result in any data being permanently removed from Digital Puppy’s servers. Clients are solely responsible for ensuring that backups are made of web content and email data, or any other data stored on their hosting space. Digital Puppy will not be liable for loss of data, or be obliged to provide any such data once the hosting contract term has expired. Any backups made by Digital Puppy will be made for legal purposes and not for data retention purposes and will not necessarily be made available to Clients on request.

6. Payment and Payment Terms

7.2 Digital Puppy reserves the right to disclose pertinent information to Registrars for public disclosure as per the Terms and Conditions of the Registrar. Digital Puppy will not be held liable for any claims of infringement of privacy by fulfilling such registration conditions.

7.4 The Client indemnifies Digital Puppy by warranting that the use or registration of the Domain Name by a Client does not interfere with nor infringe the rights of any third party in any jurisdiction with respect to trademark, service mark, tradename, company name, close corporation name, copyright nor any other intellectual property right, and that Client has the right to use the Domain Name as requested.
7.5 Digital Puppy cannot act as an arbiter of disputes arising out of the registration and use of Domain Names. At the same time, Clients acknowledge that Digital Puppy may be presented with evidence that a Domain Name registered by a Client violates the rights of a third party.
