account deemed to be abusing service to maintain the smooth running

Domain Name Registration
Domain name registration is subject to the terms and conditions
of BWDH. BWDH
does not guarantee that domain names can be registered. BWDH reserves the right to refuse to register domain
names. No action should be taken in respect of domain names until
registration has been fully completed as indicated by official registrar's
WHOIS search. Domain names are the property of the registrant once
the payment fee has been paid to BWDH.
Upon payment in full for the domain, BWDH
will change, at request, the WHOIS information on the domain name.
This can be requested by raising a Ticket. US domains are registered
with ICANN registration authorities. The registrant is responsible
for informing BWDH of any change of address
or contact details. Although BWDH will
endeavour to contact the registrant when the domain is due for renewal,
the registrant is responsible for ensuring that domain renewal takes
place when due.
Note: Failure to renew a domain before the renew date will result
in loss of use of the domain and/or loss of domain ownership.

IPStag / modifying nameservers on domain names (provided full payment
has been received for such domain names).

losses, costs and claims, including reasonable lawyer's fees asserted
against BWDH, its agents, its customers,
officers and employees, that may arise or result from any service
provided or performed or agreed to be performed or any product sold
by its customers, its agents, employees or assigns. The customer

up, there is always some server down time. BWDH shall not be held responsible for any loss of business due
to server down time in the provision of its services or otherwise.
Address Details and Privacy

purpose of contacting the account/domain owners with regards to
their business with BWDH. By trading with
BWDH, the customer accepts that personal
details, including address and contact details will be recorded

available to the general public by means of WHOIS searches with
the relevant domain registrars if they choose to have their details
published instead of BWDH's.
