Prior to submitting an application: Prospective domain name holders are responsible for ensuring that at least two name servers are configured and operable prior to submitting their application, otherwise registration process cannot proceed.

Fees and invoices: Each domain name is subject to registration and annual maintenance fees. Safenames will bill the contact persons as listed in the application forms.

Processing order of requests: Safenames treats every incoming request on a "first-come, first-served" basis. The entity seeking registration is fully responsible for their entries and is therefore required to supervise any records in the repository related to their entities.

Registration procedures: It normally takes Safenames 3 working days to complete the registration procedures for each valid application.

However, if a conflict occurs during the registration procedure, Safenames will hold the process until the case has been settled in a written legal agreement signed by both parties and a court of legal and submitted to Safenames

Safenames' liability: Safenames will neither be liable nor responsible for any loss of use, interruption of business, or any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind (including loss of profit) regardless of the form of action whether in contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, even if the registry Safenames has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
