Generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) Registry Agreements
Unsponsored TLD Agreement: Appendix G (.info)
(20 October 2003)
Registry Operator Maximum Price Schedule
This schedule specifies the maximum price Afilias may charge for services. In a manner consistent with Section 3.4.3 of the Registry Agreement, Afilias may charge a lower-than-specified rate for services, including not charging for a specified service. Except as set forth herein or otherwise agreed, Afilias shall not be entitled to charge for any service not specified in this Appendix G. Afilias shall also make rebates to registrars as specified in item 5 below.
Afilias may charge a maximum of US $5.75 per year for each domain name registered (the "Initial Registration Fee") in the Registry TLD during the Term of the Registry Agreement. The Initial Registration Fee shall be paid in full by the ICANN-Accredited Registrar sponsoring the domain name at the time of registration.
Afilias may charge a maximum of US $5.75 per year for each domain name registration renewal (the "Renewal Fee") in the Registry TLD during the Term of the Registry Agreement. The Renewal Fee shall be paid in full by the ICANN-Accredited Registrar sponsoring the domain name at the time of renewal.
During the Term of the Registry Agreement, where the sponsorship of a domain name is transferred from one ICANN-Accredited Registrar to another ICANN-Accredited Registrar, Afilias may require the registrar receiving the sponsorship to request a renewal of one year for the name. In connection with that extension, Afilias may charge a Renewal Fee for the requested extension as provided in item 2 above. The transfer shall result in an extension according to the renewal request, subject to a ten-year maximum on the future term of any domain-name registration. The Renewal Fee shall be paid in full at the time of the transfer by the ICANN-Accredited Registrar receiving sponsorship of the domain name.
For a bulk transfer approved by ICANN under Part B of Exhibit D to the Registry-Registrar Agreement, Registry Operator may charge the gaining registrar US $0 (for transfers of 50,000 names or fewer) or US $50,000 (for transfers of more than 50,000 names).
Afilias may also charge a fee for the following services, as established according to Subsection 3.4.3 of the Registry Agreement, which will be made available based on customer demand and technical feasibility:
Afilias may charge registrars the following maximum prices for each Registered Name that is restored pursuant to the Redemption Grace Period Policy set forth in Appendix C to the Registry Agreement.
Note: The fee for restoring deleted names is separate from, and in addition to, any Renewal Fees that may be changed pursuant to Section 2 of this appendix.
For each fiscal year of Afilias (the "Rebate Period") during the Term, Afilias shall make a rebate to each registrar accredited by both ICANN and Afilias that made at least one initial or renewal domain-name registration, or became the sponsoring registrar for at least one domain name as a result of a registrar transfer, during the Rebate Period. The total rebate for each Rebate Period shall be equal to 25% of Afilias' cash on hand at the end of the Rebate Period, less allocations for operating expenses (for purposes of this calculation, the allocation for operating expenses shall equal the balance of unearned income on Afilias' balance sheet as of the end of the applicable Rebate Period, less prepaid expenses as of such date); provided, however, that in no event will the total amount rebated with respect to any Rebate Period be less than one-third of the total amount of dividends made to Afilias' owners with respect to such Rebate Period. The total rebate will be distributed no later than 120 days after the end of the Rebate Period and shall be distributed to qualifying registrars pro rata according to the total domain years registered in the .info registry during the Rebate Period.
The fees listed below are subject to adjustment according to the terms of Sections 3.14.5 and 4.4 of the Registry Agreement, and are also subject to adjustment to account for additional charges that Afilias may pass through to ICANN-accredited registrars in accordance with the terms of the Registry Agreement.
