NSI Bulletin 098-008 | New Registration Agreement

From: Chuck Gomes (no email)
Date: Mon Mar 30 1998 - 13:11:25 EST


Effective immediately, Network Solutions is introducing
Domain Name Registration Agreement version 4.0 that will
replace version 3.5. The new agreement reflects fee changes
for domain name registrations and renewals following the
elimination of the Intellectual Infrastructure Fund portion
of the fee on April 1, 1998, pursuant to an amendment to
Network Solutions' Cooperative Agreement with the
National Science Foundation.

Registration and modification requests will be processed
using either version of the agreement (3.5 and 4.0) through
April 30, 1998, but the payment terms specified in version
4.0 will apply for registrations and re-registrations
starting April 1, 1998. Effective May 1, 1998, only version
4.0 will be accepted for registrations and modifications.
The new agreement can be found at:

ftp://rs.internic.net/templates/domain-template.txt

The main changes are found in Section B of the agreement.
An explanation of these changes follows.

For domain names with registration or anniversary dates on
or before March 31, 1998, the fees are $100.00 U.S. and
$50.00 U.S. respectively. These fees include a 30%
Intellectual Infrastructure Fund contribution that Network
Solutions is required to collect and deposit in an account
through an agreement with the National Science Foundation.
(Re-registrations of these names, in the future, will not
include the 30% fee.)

For domain names with registration or anniversary dates on
or after April 1, 1998, the current fees are $70.00 U.S.
and $35.00 U.S. respectively. These fees do not include
the 30% Intellectual Infrastructure Fund contribution
because this requirement ends midnight, March 31, 1998
Eastern Standard Time.

Please note that the registration or anniversary date
determines the fee amount, NOT the date paid.

If you have any further questions, please call
(703) 742-4777.

Best Regards,
Network Solutions
