Terms of service (TOS)

WebProject reserves the right to refuse service and/or access to its servers and/or services to anyone.
WebProject does not allow any of the following content to be stored on its servers:
  • Adult material - includes all pornography, erotic images, or otherwise lewd or obscene content.
  • Excessive download content or non-linked content.
  • Refusal of service based on content matching either of these two criteria is entirely at the discretion of WebProject.

Order Acceptance

WebProject have not officially accepted your application & order until you receive a full confirmation email detailing your account settings. Before this time WebProject reserve the right to cancel, reject or abort any order or application made by the customer. In any such case, if funds have already been taken, a full refund will be made.

Because all products & services sold by WebProject are tailored specifically around the domain name registered or transferred both them & the domain are classed as customisable items. Therefore the customer agrees that the Consumer Protection Regulations 2000 (Distance Selling) do not apply to our services and therefore the right to cancel registration or an order is not available.

Domain Name

Domain names are subject to availability.

We do not warrant or guarantee that the domain name applied for will be registered or is capable of being registered by you. Accordingly, you should take no action in respect of your requested domain name(s) until you have been notified by us that your requested domain name has been fully registered.

The registration of the domain name and its ongoing use is a subject to the relevant naming authority's terms and conditions of use and you are responsible for ensuring that you are aware of those terms and conditions and can and do comply with them. You irrevocably waive any claims you may have against us in respect of the decision of a naming authority to refuse to register a domain name and, without limitation agree that the administration charge paid by you to us shall be non-refundable in any event. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

We accept no responsibility in respect of the use of a domain name by you and any dispute between you and any other individual or organisation regarding to a domain name must be resolved between the parties concerned and we will take no part in any such dispute. We reserve the right, on our becoming aware of such a dispute, at our sole discretion and without giving any reason, to either suspend or cancel the domain name, and/or to make appropriate representations to the relevant naming authority. This does not affect your statutory rights as a consumer.

Once you enter a contract with WebProject to purchase a Domain, we will charge you, immediately. You must not under any circumstances order the same domain from another registrar before or after entering into a contract with WebProject, as this will cause us unwarranted administration problems & costs, and we will not be able to issue a refund under any circumstances, whether we manage to obtain the domain first or whether the other registrar obtains it for you.

We will not be held liable for any losses (directly or indirectly) caused by non re-registration of domains for whatever reason. The re-registration of domains are is solely the client's responsibility. However, we will attempt to contact the owner of the domain in advance in order to give the option to renew the registration of the domain through WebProject.

Domain name registration fees are not refundable.

All .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk registrants must agree to Nominet UK's terms and conditions located at http://www.nominet.org.uk/terms-use
