Vermont artists, small businesses, and families may want more than "just
a web page." We have contracted with a registrar to provide domain
name registration service and can guide you to the best Vermont-based
ISP and web host for your needs.
We register and transfer Top Level Domain Names
(those ending in .com, .net and .org) for our existing clients. We also
handle gTLDs. See this FAQ
for details. [The fine print: Because we are not simply
a DNS registrar, we do not "resell" domain names for businesses
or individuals with whom we do not have an ongoing relationship.]
harper will search to make sure
the domain name you want is available. We will then register and service
an available domain name ending in .com, .net or .org for $20.00 U.S.
per year. harper will not charge any other fee for the maintenance
of your name, and you will not receive any separate bills from Verisign/Network
Solutions or any other registrar. You may register for any number of years
up to a maximum of ten. Payment must be made by at the time of registration.
Our services include the following:
The harper registry server will
submit an electronic registration for your requested domain name, and
we will track its progress as the application is processed.
harper will do all in its power
to ensure that you receive your requested name, including any follow-up
that may be required.
harper will e-mail you a confirmation to show that your domain name
has been approved and registered.
At your instruction, harper will
promptly update your domain information, including name server entries,
for no additional charge.
harper acts as a service agent
only. When we have registered your Domain Name, you own that Domain
Name and assume all responsibilities for any future use, obligations,
renewal fees, and so on, needed to maintain or modify that Name.
At the end of your registration period, we
will inform you and give you the opportunity to renew your Domain Name
Domain Name Renewals:
If you have registered a new domain with
harper, we must charge the annual domain name registration
fees when your domain name comes up for renewal. Even if harper
no longer maintains or hosts your domain, we are still responsible for
the maintenance and billing of the domain name renewal. If you transfer
your site(s) to another hosting company but would like to keep ownership
of the domain name you will need to pay this annual domain name renewal
fee to harper Company.
When you are a harper web services
client, we will transfer an existing domain to our Registrar (if you
request this service). The first year cost of the transfer cost is included
in our plan and will extend your registration for one year.
