Subject to the remaining provisions of this clause 4, this document titled Domain Name Registration Agreement, and any dispute under it, is governed by and must be interpreted in accordance with the laws of New Zealand. Each party submits to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of New Zealand.
4.2 Registered Name disputes
You agree that where a dispute arises in respect of a domain name (including a Registered Name) or a Registry Document, or its use, You:
- must follow and be bound by the dispute resolution policy of the relevant Registry or ICANN (as applicable). ICANN's policies, as at the date of this Agreement are the URS and UDRP and
- the dispute will be governed by the laws set out in the Third Party Dispute Policy and You submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts that may hear disputes under the Third Party Dispute Policy, which may include the Courts in the other party's domicile or the Courts where the Registry is physically located.
4.3 Supply information
Where a Registry or third party commences a dispute or action against You under a policy described in clause 4.2, You must supply all information required under these policies. You acknowledge that a failure to do so may result in iwantmyname having to take the action described in clause 3.2.
4.4 Transfer restriction
Where You have started a dispute or action against a third party in respect of a domain name (including a Registered Name) or a Registry Document, or its use, or a third party has started a dispute or action against You, You must not transfer the applicable Registered Name to another person unless that person agrees to be bound by the decision of the Court or arbitrator (as the case may be). This clause continues to apply until 15 days after the dispute or action is concluded.
5.1 Registry Documents
The registration of domain names, the renewal of Registered Names, and related Services provided by a Registry are subject to the provisions of the Registry Document(s) that applies to that name or Service. You must comply with the Registry Document in addition to this Agreement in respect of any domain name or Registered Name registration, renewal, expiry or recovery, or any related Service.
5.2 No guarantee
iwantmyname registers domain names on a "first come, first served" basis and does not guarantee or warrant that any domain name applied for by You (including a renewal application) will be available or able to be registered or renewed, even if a preliminary search or inquiry indicates that the domain name is available. Reasons for a domain name being or becoming unavailable include:
- the simultaneous attempted registration of the domain name by another person; or
- inaccuracies or errors in the domain name registration or renewal process or related databases, including the various WHOIS databases and directories, and similar databases and directories.
5.3 Sunrise and landrush domain names
Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, if You are applying for a "Sunrise" or "Landrush" pre-launch domain name registration, iwantmyname will only accept registrations for those names in accordance with the rules published by the relevant Registry. iwantmyname will use reasonable endeavours to publish or link to those rules on the Website.
5.4 Application and renewal at iwantmyname's discretion
Without limiting the discretion available to the relevant Registry, iwantmyname may in its sole and absolute discretion, accept or reject Your application for the registration or renewal of a particular domain name, including where:
- the domain name is on, or is added to, iwantmyname's, a Registry's or ICANN's list of prohibited domains; or
- You have failed to pay all or any part of a fee associated with the Service.
5.5 Domain name registration
- A registration or renewal of a domain name is not effective unless and until the Registry updates its central domain name registry database in accordance with the relevant Registry Document. Until You receive confirmation of a Registered Name, You must not use or take any action in relation to the relevant domain name.
- You do not gain any proprietary rights in a Registered Name simply by registering the name using the Service. Registration and/or renewal of a Registered Name gives You a personal license to use the Registered Name for the period of the registration. The terms of that license are governed by the applicable Registry Documents. If You sublicense the Registered Name to a third party, You remain principally liable for Your obligations under this Agreement in respect of the license and the Registered Name. To avoid doubt, the registration of a domain name to You is not a bar to a third party challenging that registration or to the cancellation, suspension or transfer of the Registered Name in accordance with this Agreement.
- Your use of a Registered Name is subject to the Registry Documents, as those documents are updated from time to time by the Registry. To read those documents, follow the relevant link in the Schedule to this Agreement.
5.6 Renewal of registration
Registration of a Registered Name lasts for a set period of time. To continue to use the Registered Name, You must have completed a renewal application (if applicable), paid the relevant renewal fees (in cleared funds) before the expiry of the current period, and You must otherwise be in compliance with this Agreement. A failure to comply with this clause may result in:
- the cancellation of Your registration of the Registered Name; and/or
- the removal of the Registered Name from the relevant Registry's root zone file, at which time the Registered Name will cease to resolve to the nominated name servers.
5.7 Renewal notices
Except for ccTLDs (which are governed by the name renewal provisions in the relevant Registry Document), the Registry or iwantmyname will generally notify You prior to the expiry of a Registered Name by sending the notice to the email address listed in the Registry's "WHOIS" or similar directory. You are responsible for ensuring that email is correct and up to date.
5.8 Restore services
Where a Registry offers a restoration service (enabling the renewal of a Registered Name that has expired), iwantmyname will use its reasonable endeavours to make that service available to You.
Pricing for the Services is listed on the Website, and may be updated from time to time. Where iwantmyname changes the price for a Service, the new price will apply to Your next use of the Services. If you do not wish to pay the new price, you may cease your renewal of the Services or Registered Name, as the case may be.
5.10 Domain auto renew Service
If You subscribe for an auto-renew Service for a Registered Name (which may not be available for all domain names), Your Registered Name will be automatically renewed for a period of time equivalent to the current period or for a period of one (1) year until You cancel the auto-renewal Service for the Registered Name on prior notice to iwantmyname. Auto-renewal is subject to:
- Your continued compliance with this Agreement; and
- You maintaining sufficient credits in Your account for the then current renewal fees (noting that those fees may increase from time to time in accordance with clause 5.8).
5.11 Proxy and privacy registration Services
iwantmyname's proxy and privacy services that may form part of the Services are resold by iwantmyname. The provision of these services is subject the Registry's terms of trade for these Services, which are a Registry Document for the purpose of this Agreement (see the Schedule to this Agreement for a link to those terms).

You must promptly update that information as required so that the information remains true, current and complete.
6.3 Access to Your account
You are responsible for passwords and account identification details (collectively, "User IDs") provided to You by iwantmyname or generated using the Website.

7.2 Delinquent Accounts
If You fail to pay any money owed to iwantmyname, if Your account is subject to a chargeback which results in Your account being in debit, or if any requested identification or authorisation document is not provided to us, without limiting any right or remedy of iwantmyname, including under clause 3.1, iwantmyname may immediately and without notice take any or all of the following actions:
