Note: The new Registrar Agreement will come into effect on 18 March 2014. Full details of the changes have been published.
The Registrar Agreement is the legally binding contract between Nominet as the .uk registry and our registrars.
It covers how we expect registrars to behave in respect of our registration systems, commitments to registrants, the maintenance of data and our payment terms. The full agreement includes:
- Registrar Agreement
- Good Practice Terms
- Credit and Payment Terms
- Definition and Interpretation of Terms
- Terms and conditions logo
- Fee Schedule
- Acceptable use policies and instructions for EPP, Web Domain Manager and Automaton registrar systems
This latest agreement (including the Good Practice Terms) came into effect for existing registrars on 1 March 2007. We also have a complaints procedure for registrants, members or registrars to use if they wish to complain about a registrar’s behaviour.
