IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT YOU DO NOT EXPERIENCE AN INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF SERVICES, ALL SERVICES ARE SET TO AUTOMATIC RENEWAL. THE AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OPTION WILL ATTEMPT TO AUTOMATICALLY RENEW THE APPLICABLE SERVICE FOR A RENEWAL PERIOD EQUAL IN TIME TO THE MOST RECENT SERVICE PERIOD, EXCEPT FOR DOMAIN NAMES WHICH WILL RENEW FOR THE ORIGINAL SERVICE PERIOD. FOR EXAMPLE, FOR PRODUCTS OTHER THAN DOMAINS, IF YOUR LAST SERVICE PERIOD IS FOR ONE YEAR, YOUR RENEWAL PERIOD WILL BE FOR ONE YEAR. WITH THE AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OPTION, EPIK WILL ATTEMPT TO RENEW THE APPLICABLE SERVICE WHEN IT COMES UP FOR RENEWAL AND WILL TAKE PAYMENT FROM THE PAYMENT METHOD YOU HAVE ON FILE WITH US AT EPIK’S THEN CURRENT RATES, WHICH YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE MAY BE HIGHER OR LOWER THAN THE RATES FOR THE ORIGINAL SERVICE PERIOD. PLEASE NOTE THAT RENEWAL DATES VARY BY SERVICE. FOR INSTANCE, SOME SERVICES MAY RENEW THIRTY (30) DAYS PRIOR TO EXPIRATION, AND OTHERS MAY RENEW FIVE (5) DAYS PRIOR TO EXPIRATION. YOU MAY ENABLE OR DISABLE THE AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OPTION ON DOMAIN NAMES AT ANY TIME. HOWEVER, SHOULD YOU ELECT TO DISABLE THE AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OPTION AND FAIL TO MANUALLY RENEW YOUR SERVICES BEFORE THEY EXPIRE, OR IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD CHOSEN FOR YOUR AUTOMATIC RENEWAL SHOULD FAIL, YOU MAY EXPERIENCE AN INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF SERVICES, AND EPIK WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY REGARDING THE SAME. EPIK RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DETERMINE WHETHER A SECOND PAYMENT ATTEMPT WILL BE MADE SHOULD THE CHOSEN PAYMENT METHOD FAIL.
IN ADDITION, EPIK MAY PARTICIPATE IN “RECURRING BILLING PROGRAMS” OR “ACCOUNT UPDATER SERVICES” SUPPORTED BY YOUR THIRD-PARTY BILLING PROVIDER. IF YOU ARE ENROLLED IN AN AUTOMATIC RENEWAL OPTION, AND WE ARE UNABLE TO CHARGE YOUR EXISTING PAYMENT METHOD SUCCESSFULLY, YOUR CREDIT CARD PROVIDER (OR YOUR BANK) MAY NOTIFY US OF UPDATES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER AND/OR EXPIRATION DATE, OR THEY MAY AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE YOUR NEW CREDIT CARD ON OUR BEHALF WITHOUT NOTIFICATION TO US. IN ACCORDANCE WITH RECURRING BILLING PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS, IF WE ARE NOTIFIED OF AN UPDATE TO YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER AND/OR EXPIRATION DATE, EPIK WILL AUTOMATICALLY UPDATE YOUR PAYMENT PROFILE ON YOUR BEHALF. EPIK MAKES NO GUARANTEE THAT WE WILL REQUEST OR RECEIVE UPDATED CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT IT IS YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO MODIFY AND MAINTAIN YOUR ACCOUNT SETTINGS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO (I) SETTING YOUR RENEWAL OPTIONS AND (II) ENSURING YOUR ASSOCIATED PAYMENT METHOD(S) ARE CURRENT AND VALID. FURTHER, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN THE INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF SERVICES, AND EPIK WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY REGARDING THE SAME.
Backorders work on a first-come, first-serve basis.
If We acquire the domain name You backordered, it will be delivered to Your Epik account. If We do not acquire the domain name You backordered, the backorder will sit in our system until We capture the domain or cancel the backorder.
13.2 DOMAIN BROKERAGE.
Epik’s Domain Brokerage Program helps clients acquire a domain name or sell a domain name with a low % commission fee of 9%.
13.3 DOMAIN LOANS.
Epik offers Domain Loans on a one-year basis, where domains are held as collateral. The funds are distributed into Your In-Store Credit and can be used for any purchases on the Epik platform. Epik is not a bank; therefore, these funds cannot be withdrawn.
The interest rate for a domain loan depends on the money You request.
The domain(s) put up as collateral will remain in Your account but under a Registrar-Lock until the loan is paid in full. The domain must be set to Automatic Renewal. If the domain held in collateral is not renewed, Epik will renew the domain and add the renewal fee to the amount owed on the domain loan.
Should You receive a notification of an interested party wanting a domain held in collateral, the domain in question can be sold, and our Sales team will facilitate the sale. A brokerage fee of 9% will be taken from the final sale price, and the funds will be put toward the loan. If there are any leftover funds, they will be distributed to Your Masterbucks account, which You can withdraw.
13.4 EPIK MARKETPLACE/EXTERNAL DOMAINS.
The Epik Marketplace allows for the sale of external domains (domains not registered at Epik), and the commission fee for these domains is 10%.
For an external domain to be listed, a TXT record must be put in place within 1 (one) Week of the domain’s listing. This TXT record must be kept in place for the duration of the listing. Failure to do so will result in the domain being removed from the Marketplace.
In the event that You back out of a domain sale or Epik finds You are abusing the privilege of selling external domains, Your account will be restricted from selling external domains for a period of 90 days. Should there be ongoing issues regarding selling external domains, Your account will be permanently banned from our Marketplace.
Epik’s Reseller Program is the best way to get into domaining with an automated domain reselling and management platform.
