Although we make every effort to ensure our availability checker is accurate, there is a possibility that we may show reserved/premium domains
as available due to the early stage of roll out for this domain.
If you submit an order for a domain that is later identified as reserved then we will unfortunately be unable to complete the registration and you will be provided a full refund.
If you submit an order for a domain that is later identified as premium then you will have two options available to you:
- Pay the additional premium rate to secure your domain
- Receive a refund, in which case even fees stated as "non-refundable" will be refunded.
