These general terms and conditions apply to the relationship between Okens Domains and the User (Users) of https://controlpanel.okens.domains (Service)
The Service is provided by Okens Domains and is an online service that sells domains, registration and administration of domain names. Domains that can be bought through this Service can be newly registered domain names or existing domain names.
The domains that are ordered/bought are specified in the order confirmation and/or payment statement depending on the online purchase made through the Service.
The User accepts that Okens Domains may use subcontractors to provide the Service and any additional services.
In the case where a Registry requires Okens Domains to register as administrative, technical and/or billing contact for a domain Okens Domains has the right to do so.
A newly registered domain can be moved from Okens Domains no earlier than 60 days after the date of registration, unless otherwise specified in a specific registry.
In cases where a specific TLD requires a local person to register for a domain name, the User will authorise Okens Domains in the agreement to arrange such a local contact for the client, connected to the specific domain being bought.
By using this Service to buy domain names, the User agrees to the terms and conditions that from one time to another may be applicable for the respective Registry.
Okens Domains may at any time offer both its own and third party additional products, promotional products and products from partners. Examples of this, but not exclusive, are:
A Domain Holding is a third party product A User who chooses to add the product Domain Holding to a domain, approve in the agreement when buying the additional product, that Okens Domains is authorised, without compensation, to relinquish ownership rights and add an external third party owner to the domain. Okens Domains has no formal control or ability to influence the relationship between the User and a third party, which means the relationship is completely separate from the relationship between the User and Okens Domains. This also means that Okens Domains is not liable for any of the third party's actions, ownership structure, financial status, rights, duties or any other conditions that may directly or indirectly affect the ownership rights.
Furthermore, Okens Domains is not liable for any decisions made by e.g. a Registry or government authority, nor will Okens Domains suffer any effect or consequence related to the User's domain with the additional product Domain Holding.
A User cannot switch a registrar of a domain to which they do not have the ownership rights.
Okens Domains shall, without exception and without any restrictions regarding reason, size, nature or time frame, be exempt from any consequences, demands or decisions related to the User's relationship to, and use of, any third party for Domain Holding.
Restoration of a domain after (a redemption period)
Given the different procedures and rules for a domain's redemption period, certain domains may be restored after the onset of the redemption period. Such a restoration bears a cost for the User that is indicated on the order confirmation and/or invoice.
Support regarding the service is provided free of charge by email and/or via the Okens Domains website/customer service.
Becoming a member and User of the Service costs nothing unless otherwise stipulated. The price for each domain and/or any additional products is specified by the Service and presented in connection with each respective domain and/or additional product on the order confirmation and/or invoice.
The price for a domain may be based on its availability and therefore change over time.
Transferring domains is regulated by the respective registry, whereon the User must always take into account any specific conditions for the current registry in the case of a transfer of a domain to another registrar.
The User is responsible for renewal of a domain. The price of a renewal of a domain varies between the different TLDs (Top Level Domains). Okens Domains has, regardless of the reason, no responsibility for the renewal, and shall in all cases be exempt from liability if the User for some reason fails to renew a domain. Even when the Service has automated reminders for the Users that a renewal is needed, it is incumbent upon the User to constantly stay aware of the domains that require renewal.
Okens Domains disclaims all liability regarding a domain's current or previous content, and a User that buys a domain through the Service must always keep Okens Domains exempt from liability in case of any disputes, claims or otherwise, concerning a domain's history, links, content, name or other attributes or connections.
All payments shall be made by credit card. No domains or additional products shall be delivered to the User before full payment has been made.
Any transaction costs from a card company and/or a card-paying supplier, arising from the completion of a purchase, are paid by Okens Domains unless otherwise specified in connection with the purchase.
Any transaction costs and/or additional charges arising from an improper purchase, withdrawal, insufficient credit, or another form of reimbursement shall always be paid by the User.
A User who in any way abuses the service may at any time find their membership, account or service shut down. A shut down may occur without warning and without any notification to the User. A shut down which is a result of a suspected violation of the law can result in Okens Domains disclosing information about the User and the abuse which occurred to the police or other legal authority or agency.
Regardless of the reason for the shutdown, a User cannot insist on any form of damages or other reimbursement or compensation from Okens Domains.
Okens Domains's goal is for the Service to be able to be accessed and used with any type of hardware (eg, PC, tablet, mobile). The Service may at one time or another be shut down for one or more users. Downtime may be planned or unplanned. Okens Domains strives to minimise the downtime of the Service but can never guarantee total/constant availability. No form of downtime can be the basis for some form of reimbursement or compensation to the User.
