Many of the products MOREWEB offers have a monthly or annual renewal fee, which will be automatically charged to the customer if the customer does not expressly let the product or service expire or cancel it before the due date.
For exact information regarding the fees and the renewal of the services, please refer to the specific products and services terms section of the Terms.
7. Fees and Prices
MOREWEB endeavours to keep all prices up to date. MOREWEB revises all prices on a regular basis and may adjust them in the event a registry has increased their domain fee. We will charge you for the price shown on the website at the date of your order or renewal. Please note that we cannot guarantee the prices for a longer period of time.
We also retain the right to change the fees and prices for any of the offered products and services. You will be informed at least fourteen (14) days in advance of such price change.
Unless a different agreement was specifically arranged with MOREWEB, customers are required to pay the invoices at the time of their order. Any other payment option must be arranged with MOREWEB in advance and is at MOREWEB’s sole discretion.
As a company with headquarters in New Zealand, customers are generally charged in NZD. On request the customers can also pay in USD or EUR depending on their domicile or base of operations. Please contact MOREWEB in case you want to pay in a different currency than NZD.
The customer accepts that we can only accept international wire transfers if the amount is higher than 100 NZD.
You acknowledge that and accept that any invoice that is unpaid after thirty (30) days following its issuing date, will be subject of late fees of 1.5% of the invoice value every month until such time as the outstanding amount is paid in full.
In most cases the registration of domain names is performed in real time. This means that as soon as a customer submits the order for a domain name, this order is forwarded to the respective registry and subject to availability the registry will charge MOREWEB and the domain will be registered.
MOREWEB cannot refund the domain name registration or renewal fees. In some cases it may be possible to cancel the order before the registry has processed it. Please contact our support immediately if you have sent an order by mistake and want us to see if the order can still be cancelled. Regardless of the product or service ordered, if MOREWEB deems it possible to cancel the order upon request of the customer, MOREWEB reserves the right to charge the customer a 5% (minimum of $10 NZD) cancellation fee.
10. Friends and Fans Referral Scheme
Our friends and fans referral scheme is our way to say thank you to our loyal customer. For the successful invitation of a friend, the existing MOREWEB customer as well as the referred new customer will receive a 10% discount on their next and first order, respectively.
It will be deemed a successful invitation when the new referred customer creates an account and submits their first order. The customer acknowledges that the creation of an account only, is not deemed as a successful invitation. The new referred customer must submit at least one order for the discount to be claimed.
Please note that this referral scheme is a courtesy of MOREWEB with which we want to reward the referral of new customers. For this reason we put rules and measures in place to reward only genuine new customers. The customer understands and accepts that each new customer can only be referred once. Referring the same customer a second time will not result in the discount reward for either of the parties.
Subject to fourteen (14) days notice, we retain the right to adjust the discount percentage of the friends and fans referral scheme, or cancel the friends and fans referral scheme entirely. The customer also accepts that MOREWEB has the right to reject the discount in case of any fraudulent activity or abuse of the friends and fans referral scheme. This includes but is not limited to cases of: self-referral, mass-creation of new email addresses, referring the same customers multiple times, setting up multiple new accounts to receive repeated discounts. If such abuse or behaviour is detected, MOREWEB will provide a written warning to the customer. In the event the customer continues to abuse the referral scheme, MOREWEB reserves the right to cancel the customer ‘s accounts.
11. Use of free services
MOREWEB may offer various services for free as part of certain products and services. The free services include but are not limited to use of DNS infrastructure, URL forwarding, email forwarding, free one page website, and free local presence service. Such services will be free at the sole discretion of MOREWEB.
MOREWEB reserves the right to begin charge for some or all of the free services in future. In this case the customer will get informed at least thirty (30) days before the price change takes effect, the customer may choose to opt out at any time prior to the effective date of the price change.
12. Supporting Documents
Some products and services, in particular but not limited to country code domain extensions, may require supporting documentation, which has to be provided by the future registrant in order to register the domain name. The customer understands that working with documents results sometimes in the delay of provision of services or products.
Some registries require specific documents which have to be signed and sent back or generic ones such as copy of passport or ID card, company registration certificate, proof of business relationships with the respective country. You may be asked to provide additional documents, which are not listed here.
The customer understands that it is not MOREWEB requiring those documents but that we are only following the requirements of the respective registries. That being said, the customer acknowledges that MOREWEB has to forward such documents to the respective registries. The customer accepts also that in case there is a third party or intermediate provider between MOREWEB and the registry, MOREWEB has the right to send the documents to this third party or intermediate provider.
We chose our partners after due diligence and we do our best only to work with credible, reputable and certified partners, MOREWEB cannot be made responsible for the compromise of any documentation sent to a third party in the process of provisioning the order for a customer.

24.1. Domain Registration
MOREWEB functions as an intermediary between the registry and the domain registrant. In order to facilitate the domain registration, MOREWEB provides a domain search engine free of charge. It allows the customer to check the availability of domain names and lets them register the domain in case it is available for registration.
MOREWEB shall register domain names for the customer, by forwarding their requests to the respective registry in order to register the domain name. The successful registration depends on various factors, including but not limited to correct details submitted by the future registrant, fulfilment of the extension and registry requirements and of the general availability of the chosen domain name. Based on these requirements, the customer understands that MOREWEB cannot guarantee the successful registration of a domain name.
Once a domain name is registered, MOREWEB will grant the customer direct access to the domain name via the domain account of the customer with MOREWEB. The customer has then full control over the domain name.
The customer agrees not to register a domain name that they know will infringe upon any trademark, brand, or other propriety rights of third parties.
24.2. Domain Activation
Certain domain extensions need the domain name to be activated before the customer can use it. In order to activate the domain name the domain registrant may be asked to take action; for example to confirm an email sent to them by the registry, forward an activation code sent by the registry to MOREWEB, accept a phone call by the respective registry or login to a registry control panel and confirm their details and validity of the registration order.
The customer understands that without their help, the help of the future domain owner, the domain activation cannot be successfully finalised and they risk that the domain will get deactivated again by the registry. The customer acknowledges that it is not the fault of MOREWEB if a domain name gets deactivated, removed or deleted by the registry if the customer did not process the activation or provide the responses required.
24.3. Domain Transfers
The customer understands that some registries do not allow a domain name to be transferred in a timeframe of sixty (60) days after the registration date or after a successful registration. In those cases the customer must wait until the lock period is over and the domain name can be transferred.
The customer understands that MOREWEB cannot influence this as this is a regulation by the respective registry, or consensus policy of the regulatory body, ICANN.
Domain Name Transfers (ICANN)
Registrar Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy (ICANN)
24.4. Domain Update
MOREWEB will offer their customers the means and tools to update their domain name information. The customer understands that not all registries support or allow the modification of domain names registered under their extension. Certain registries may only allow the update of the nameserver information but not of the domain owner details. For this reason it is very important for the customer uses accurate information.
The customer understands that MOREWEB cannot be made responsible if domain names registered with out-dated or incorrect information cannot be updated due to registry restriction.
24.5. Domain Renewals
The customer understands that the domain fees are a yearly fee, which will be charged by MOREWEB every year, or according to the domain name renewal cycle. Subject to all applicable fees being paid, the registrant is the rightful owner of the domain name and has full control to administer it.
In general domains have to be renewed manually by the customer every year. If the customer fails to do that, the domain name will be set to expiration and will expire at the end of its registration period. Once the domain has expired the customer has lost the control and rights over the domain.
MOREWEB provides a service that allows the customer to automatically renew their domains every year. The customer understands that as long as the automatic renewal is activated for their domain name(s), MOREWEB has the right to charge the related domain fee.
24.6. Domain Deletion
Where possible, MOREWEB will try and delete a domain name on request of a customer. The customer acknowledges that not all registries do allow the deletion of a domain name and in many cases the only possibility is to let a domain name expire.
MOREWEB cannot be made responsible for any damages or claims that result from a domain name that was not supposed to be in the possession of a customer and should have been deleted on the request of a third party, judge or by any other authority.
24.7. Domain Expiration
When the domain name expires, MOREWEB is required by ICANN to remove the nameservers and point the domain name to a website showing that the name needs to be renewed. Immediately after the domain name has expired you lose the rights to use the domain name.
After the expiration of the domain name, depending on the extension, the domain name will remain in a “redemption” period or phase in which the domain name cannot be reclaimed and is prepared to be deleted by the registry.
In this phase the domain name still shows your name as the owner but you do not have any rights to the domain name.
Please see also the Expired Registration Recovery Policy (ICANN).
24.8. Domain Restore/Reactivation
Some registries do offer a restore/reactivation feature for their extension. This means that the domain name could be restored and claimed back by the former owner. Please note that this service is subject to a restore/reactivation fee, which is charged by the registry and passed on to you.
On your request, we will do our best to try and regain your domain name, but you accept that there is no guarantee for the restore/reactivation of your domain name.
24.9. Parking Page
The customer acknowledges that MOREWEB has the right to redirect all registered but unused domain names to a parking page. This is done to avoid showing a 404 Error page. This parking page may show and offer other MOREWEB products and services.
The customer is entitled to deny such redirection or edit the nameservers at any time and point the domain to their hosting provider.
24.10. Domain owner details
The customer understands that it is of upmost importance to use valid and correct domain owner details for the registration of their domain names. In particular the accessibility and reachability of the email address used for the domain registration is very important.
The customer is obligated to keep their domain details up to date at all times. Not doing so could result in the deletion of the domain name.
The customer acknowledges that whoever controls the domain registrant email address has full control over the related domains. As such it is the customer’s responsibility to supply at the time of registration an email address, which they own and control.
Please see also Registrant Rights and Responsibilities(ICANN).
Required by ICANN regulation, registrars are now obliged to remind all domain registrants once a year to check and verify the correctness of their domain whois details Whois Data Reminder Policy (ICANN).
24.11. Dispute resolution
You agree to the industry standard Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (“UDRP”). You understand and accept that MOREWEB cannot be hold liable for the outcome of the UDRP and that we cannot influence or dispute it, nor can we challenge the decision or block the domain name and refuse to release it to the challenging third party. You accept that ICANN has the right to change the UDRP rules at any time.
General dispute resolution: Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution (ICANN)
Especially for new domain extensions: Uniform Rapid Suspension System (ICANN)
You understand that the fees for any domain order needs to be paid by you in full and in advance of receiving the related service. You agree that in case a payment made with a credit card has been charged back, we retain the right to take back or block the domain name until the outstanding bill has been paid in full.
Unless explicitly specified for a certain TLD, MOREWEB will refund the registration fees in case a domain name could not be registered for the customer.
The customer accepts that some registries charge a non-refundable fee for the attempted registration. In particular when they have to verify documents for the registration process. The customer understands that in those cases MOREWEB cannot refund the non-refundable part of the registration fees.
24.13. Free Domain Name Promotions
Unless otherwise specified, our free domain promotions are valid for one domain name per user. We reserve the right to deactivate accounts and delete domains that are used for spam or fraudulent activities, violate trademark laws, or are in conflict with any of the rules and regulations of the respective registry or our domain promotions and/or our general terms and conditions.
24.14. Domain Registry Policies
In our function as an ICANN accredited domain registrar, or domain name reseller, MOREWEB is bound to the rules of ICANN and all registries we are collaborating with. Under the following page you will find a list of all registry policies that all accredited domain registrars are bound to.
MOREWEB as well as our customers need to comply with these rules.

Despite changing the owner in the Whois, the ownership of the domain name remains with the actual domain owner. On request MOREWEB will verify the ownership of the domain with a certificate of ownership.
The sole purpose of the Domain Privacy service is to hide the domain owners details form the public whois database. The service shall not be used for any other purposes or reasons. Should the Domain Privacy service be used by the customer for fraudulent or unlawful purposes, MOREWEB reserves the right to remove the Domain Privacy service.
By using the Domain Privacy service, the domain owner authorises both, Domain Privacy Ltd and MOREWEB to read the emails and post sent to the cover address. The customer also gives the authorisation to Domain Privacy Ltd and MOREWEB to disregard and delete any obvious spam post.
The customer understands and accepts that the Domain Privacy service can and will only be provided to domain names registered with MOREWEB. When a domain name using the Domain Privacy Ltd protection service is being transferred away to another registrar, the domain loses the right to use the service. The service will and has to be removed before the domain can be transferred away.
The customer understands that the Domain Privacy service is under no circumstances a post or mail forwarding solution. The customer accepts that neither Domain Privacy Ltd nor MOREWEB can be held responsible for miss-use of the service by the customer.
The customer accepts that the Domain Privacy service cannot be used by all domain extensions and that it can only be used with domain extensions for which the responsible registry explicitly allows the use of such whois privacy services.
The Domain Privacy fee is valid for the yearly registration period of a domain name and will automatically renew together with the domain name, unless the owner removes the service from the domain name before it is renewed.
The customer acknowledges that this service is exempt from any refunds. By applying the service to a domain name, MOREWEB has fulfilled its duty. If a customer removes the service before the expiration of the domain name, or if the Domain Privacy is cancelled because the customer transfers the domain name to another registrar, there is no right for partial refund of the Domain Privacy service fee.
When a customer asks to remove the Domain Privacy service from their domain, MOREWEB will update the domain to the original registrant contact details, which were used before the domain was updated to the Domain Privacy.
The customer accepts and understands that in case of a complaint or lawsuit against a domain protected by the Domain Privacy service, or against Domain Privacy Ltd as service provider and domain trustee, MOREWEB retains the right to remove the service and update the domain name with the details of the actual domain owner.
Domain Privacy Ltd and MOREWEB retain also the right to remove the service if it is miss-used by the customer or used in a way other then the intentional one.
31. Local Presence Service
31.1. Local Presence Service Description
Some country code registries require a local physical address in their country in order to be eligible to register a domain under their extension. Where possible, MOREWEB may offer a Local Presence Service (“LPS”). This will allow the future registrants to register the domain name without actual residing in the respective country.
With few exceptions, the LPS is in most cases offered for free and without additional charge. However, the customer understands that in some cases additional charges may apply, in which case MOREWEB will inform the customer in advance.
31.2. Use and application of the service
Where possible MOREWEB will automatically use their LPS for required extensions and will not consult with the. This is done to simplify and speed up the registration process for the customer.
In case the customer does not want to use the LPS and rather not own the domain name, they can inform MOREWEB and we will let the domain name expire at its next expiration date. The customer understands that there is no refund on domain names registered with the MOREWEB LPS.
The customer accepts that not all registries allow the use of such service and that in case there is a policy change, which limits or removes the right to use such service, the customer may face the loss of their domain name. The customer understands that in such cases, when the domain is lost due to changes of the policy and registry regulations, MOREWEB cannot be held responsible and furthermore is not responsible for any compensation.
31.4. Liability and Responsibility
The customer acknowledges that the LPS is not comparable with the Domain Privacy service and that under no circumstances these two services are interchangeable. The LPS is exclusively provided to allow the customer the registration of a domain name under an extension that requires local presence.
32.1. Service Description
MOREWEB offers full name server infrastructure, free of charge to all customers. You can use the MOREWEB nameservers for all your domain names. You are entitled to edit, change and modify the nameserver for your domain and nameserver entries at any time, using the provided functions in our customer control panel.
When the MOREWEB nameservers are used, the customers have also full control over the zone records and entries and change edit and modify them without limitation.
32.2. Liability and Responsibility
The customer commits to use the MOREWEB nameservers in a reasonable fashion and only in the frame of their intended use. In case the customer pursues any activities that have a harmful effect on our infrastructure, including but not limited to DDoS attacks, overuse or slow down of our infrastructure, we retain the right to suspend the provision of this service to the customer and deactivate the domain name causing the problems.
If a domain name that uses the MOREWEB nameservers is transferred to another registrar, this domain loses the rights to use our nameserver infrastructure. MOREWEB retains the right to remove any related DNS zones from our platform to keep our platform clean and fast for all remaining domains.
The customer acknowledges that they have no right for compensation for damages caused by the downtime of a domain name that used the MOREWEB nameservers while it has been transferred away to another domain registrar.
