3. Fees for Transfers of Sponsorship of Domain-Name Registrations

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, NeuLevel may require the registrar receiving the sponsorship to request a renewal of one year for the name. In connection with that extension, NeuLevel 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).

  • The cost of restoring an unintentionally deleted domain name in the Redemption Grace Period must not exceed US $40.00.
