Secura GmbH is called in the following "registrar". Every individual or company, which is registering a domain name at Secura GmbH, is called "Registered Name Holder". Registrar and Registered Name Holder are concluding this contract.
The contract between Secura GmbH and consumers or resellers about domains and other services is always for defined periods. The first regular contract period is of one,two or several years. It is afterwards automatically prolonged year by year. Consumers or resellers must cancel the contract concerning domains or other services 6 weeks before the end of the contract. Registered Name Holder will receive an invoice for renewal of the contract after the end of the last period. If Registered Name Holder will have not paid this invoice after notices, the domain will be deleted according to ICANN Policies.
ICANN accredited Registrars send notices about the status of domains going to expire according to the new ICANN Policy. Customers of Secura get these notices by e-mails to the Registered Name Holder.
The prices of Domains, authorized by ICANN, are different. The exact prices are published at the special websites for the single domains. The renewal fee is the same as the registration fee. There is no higher renewal fee for late renewals. But there is an additional restore fee for the restore of a deleted domain of 90 US-Dollars for the costs of the restore and the writing of the obligatory restore report.
Registered Name Holder can demand within 30 days after deletion the restore of the domain. The restore fee is 90 US-Dollars/domain. The restore fee is different from the domain renewal fee. It must be paid together with the due domain renewal fee in advance.
If you pay by credit card, your credit card may be billed immediately after purchase.
