available for public registration due to any circumstance, we will make
commercially reasonable efforts to acquire the domain name and register
it through its own registrar, or one of its registrar partners on your
- We do
not and cannot guarantee acquisition of any domain name, nor can we
guarantee at which registrar the name will ultimately be registered upon
its deletion by the applicable registry operator. To maximize your
chances of getting the domain name you want, we use a network of many
registrars, in addition to our registrars, to attempt to acquire domain
names. The domain name you backorder may therefore be registered through
a registrar other than one of our registrars.
- If we
register a domain name in response to your backorder request, you
acknowledge that the duration of the initial domain name registration
term may vary slightly depending on the method used fulfill your order.
If the domain was registered to you after deletion from a domain
registry, the registration term will be for 365 days from the date of

registered to you via a registrar transfer, the registration term will
be for 365 days from the date of expiration listed in the WHOIS for that

just been made available to the public for registration via our site.

reasonable basis, and to our knowledge, no entity is able to reliably
offer complete and real-time information on the status of a domain name
during the time just before or soon after its deletion by the registry.

name's status by performing a WHOIS look-up, found on the website of any

all Proxy Bids are final and irreversible, and that you may not lower
your maximum bid amount, or cancel the Proxy Bid, except under
extenuating circumstances as determined in our sole discretion.
However, you may increase your maximum bid amount by placing a new Proxy

amounts, the bid processed earlier in time, as determined by our system,

name may be retained by us, deleted or otherwise disposed of by us as we
see fit in our sole discretion.

- Note that registrants who own an existing co.uk, org.uk, me.uk, net.uk, plc.uk or ltd.uk registered prior to Oct. 29, 2013 will have their .UK domain name reserved for free up until June 10, 2019, as long as the existing domain name remains registered.
- .UK domain name registration required a postal address in the United Kingdom (i.e., within Great Britain, Guernsey, Jersey, or Isle of Man). Please note that a P.O. Box does not satisfy the local presence requirement, as it formerly allowed for .CO.UK domain name registration.
.US Registration Requirements
- .US domain name registration is subject to a nexus requirement, whereby registrants must be either:
1. A natural person (i) who is a United States citizen, (ii) who is a permanent resident of the United States of America or any of its possessions or territories, or (iii) whose primary place of domicile is in the United States of America or any of its possessions [Nexus Category 1],

2. 3. A foreign entity or organization that has a bona fide presence in the United States of America or any of its possessions or territories [Nexus Category 3].
.MOBI Registration Requirements
- There are no specific requirements to register a .MOBI domain name. Everyone can register .MOBI domain names. However, the .MOBI Registry regularly audits all .MOBI sites to ensure .MOBI compliance. Compliance ensures that the site has been optimized for display on mobile devices. Mandatory requirements for building a .MOBI website are as follows:
1. Must use XHTML Mobile Profile 1.0 as the default for the landing page
2. Cannot use frames
3. Site must be present on second level
- Any non-compliant .MOBI domain names will have 60 days to become compliant. If a domain fails to comply within 60 days, the Registry will remove the domain from the zone file and the site will no longer resolve.
.BIZ Registration Requirements
- .BIZ domain names are subject to the following restrictions per ICANN:
1. Registrations in the .biz TLD must be used or intended to be used primarily for bona fide business or commercial purposes;
2. Registrations in the .biz TLD must comply with the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy ("UDRP"), as adopted and as may be amended by the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers.
- For purposes of the .biz Registration Restrictions ("Restrictions"), "bona fide business or commercial use" shall mean the bona fide use or bona fide intent to use the domain name or any content, software, materials, graphics or other information thereon, to permit Internet users to access one or more host computers through the DNS:
1. To exchange goods, services, or property of any kind;
2. In the ordinary course of trade or business; or
2. To facilitate (i) the exchange of goods, services, information, or property of any kind; or, (ii) the ordinary course of trade or business.
- Registering a domain name solely for the purposes of (1) selling, trading or leasing the domain name for compensation, or (2) the unsolicited offering to sell, trade or lease the domain name for compensation shall not constitute a "bona fide business or commercial use" of that domain name. For illustration purposes, the following shall not constitute a "bona fide business or commercial use" of a domain name:
1. Using or intending to use the domain name exclusively for personal, noncommercial purposes; or
2. Using or intending to use the domain name exclusively for the expression of noncommercial ideas (i.e., registering xxxsucks.biz exclusively to criticize or otherwise express an opinion on the products or services of ABC company, with no other intended business or commercial purpose);
2. Using the domain name for the submission of unsolicited bulk e-mail, phishing, pharming or other abusive or fraudulent purposes.

OF A DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION:
Immediately after the expiration of the term of domain name registration
services and before deletion of the domain name in the applicable
registry's database, we may direct the domain name to name-servers and IP
address(es) designated by us, including, without limitation, to no IP address
or to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search
engine that may display advertisements, and we may either leave your WHOIS
information intact or we may change the contact information in the WHOIS
output for the expired domain name so that you are no longer the listed
registrant of the expired domain name.
Grace Period. If you fail to renew the expired domain name prior to its
expiration date, Nimzo 98, LLC. provides a Renewal Grace Period of thirty (30)
days from the expiration date where the expired domain name registration
may be renewed. During the Renewal Grace Period, you may renew the
expired domain name for a renewal fee plus any registration fees that may
also be due. Our current list of fees can be found at https://www.nimzo98.com/fees.php.
You assume all risks and all consequences if you wait until close to or
after the expiration of the original term of domain name registration
services to attempt to renew the domain name registration services. The
Renewal Grace Period is subject to change under the terms of this
the Renewal Grace Period, if you have not exercised your rights under the

information may approve or deny a transfer request. Without limitation,
domain name services may not be transferred within 60 days of initial
registration, within 60 days of a transfer, if there is a dispute
regarding the identity of the domain name registrant, if you are
bankrupt, or if you fail to pay fees when due. We will follow the
procedures for both gaining and loosing registrars as outlined in ICANN's
transfer policies. Transfer requests typically take five business days to
be processed. A transfer will not be processed if, during this time, the
domain name registration services expire, in which event you may need to
reinstate the transfer request following a redemption of the domain name,
if any. You may be required to resubmit a transfer request if there is a
communication failure or other problem at either our end or at the
registry. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK FOR FAILURE OF A TRANSFER WHETHER OR NOT
