Should you wish to register .NEW names with us or transfer .new names to our management, the Registry Operator, Charleston Road Registry Inc. (dba Google Registry), imposes certain conditions. As set out in our Terms and Conditions, by placing an order with us you unconditionally agree to be bound by these conditions. You agree and acknowledge the .new registry policies as set out below and updated from time to time:
Registration Policy: https://www.registry.google/policies/registration/new/#!/
Startup Policy: https://www.registry.google/policies/startup/new/#!/
Domain Name Abuse Policy: https://www.registry.google/about/policies/domainabuse/index.html
In particular, further to the Registration Policy, you agree that this new gTLD is semi-restricted as navigation to a .NEW domain must bring a user “directly into the action generation or online creation flow” and allow the user to create something without any further navigation. Examples of this can be seen at docs.new and slides.new, which open new Google documents. The aim of this new gTLD is to provide a hub for new content, ideas and offerings on the internet. This content must be set up on the domain name within 100 days from the date of registration (and the domain cannot be used for other purposes in the meantime). Google will undertake compliance checks to ensure that domain registrations meet this criteria, and non-compliant domains may be placed on server-hold or deleted. Google Registry will not enforce these requirements for any domain registered during the Sunrise Period (Sunrise Domains) provided that such domain remains registered to the original Sunrise Period registrant and does not resolve.
.NEW is also a secure namespace, meaning that HTTPS is required for all .NEW websites. You can buy your .NEW domain name now, but in order for it to work properly in browsers you must first configure HTTPS. For information on obtaining SSL Certificates (which provide HTTPS) please contact your Client Manager directly. For more information about configuring HTTPS, please see our SSL certificate partner’s information page at https://www.digicert.com/kb/configure-ssl-certificate-support.htm.
You acknowledge and agree that Registry Operator reserves the right to deny, cancel or transfer any registration or transaction, or place any domain name(s) on registry lock, hold or similar status, as it deems necessary, in its unlimited and sole discretion: (i) to comply with specifications adopted by any industry group generally recognised as authoritative with respect to the Internet (e.g. RFCs); (ii) to correct mistakes made by the Registry Operator or any registrar in connection with a domain name registration; (iii) to protect the rights and property of the Registry Operator and to avoid any potential or actual liability, civil or criminal, on the part of the Registry Operator as well as its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, representatives, employees, and stockholders; (iv) to protect the integrity and stability of the Registry System and the operation of the DNS; (v) to comply with all Applicable Laws, government rules or requirements, request of law enforcement or any applicable dispute resolution process; or (vi) for violation of the terms and conditions set forth in your terms and conditions with Com Laude.
To the extent permitted by Applicable Laws, you indemnify, defend and hold harmless Registry Operator, its parent company and subcontractors, and its and their directors, officers, employees, agents, and affiliates from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees and expenses arising out of or relating to, for any reason whatsoever, your domain name registration. This indemnification obligation shall survive the termination or expiry of your agreement with Com Laude.
You agree to comply with the terms and conditions of the Registry Operator’s initial launch of the Registry TLD (including without limitation all of the applicable periods defined in the Registry TLD’s Start-up Policy as set referenced above) and further acknowledge that Registry Operator has no liability of any kind for any loss or liability resulting from the proceedings and processes relating to any of the applicable registration periods defined in the Start-up Policy for the Registry TLD, including, without limitation (i) your ability or inability to obtain a Registered Name during the periods defined therein, and (ii) the results of any dispute over registrations that are an identical match to trademarks or service marks listed in the Trademark Clearinghouse.”
Registry Lock Program for Google Registry
Registry locking in any Google TLD is subject to the Registry Operator’s terms and conditions. Registry Operator does not guarantee that a Registry Lock will be available without interruption, and operation of Registry Lock may be suspended without notice or liability to Registry Operator or Com Laude for technical, legal, or anti-abuse reasons.
By submitting a request for a Registry Lock, you confirm that you have full authority to act on the Registered Name Holder’s behalf.
You will comply with all applicable statutes, statutory instruments, regulations, rules, and orders which affect the use of Registry Lock.
Neither Registry Operator nor Com Laude will have any liability whatsoever to you or any third party as a result of any failure or inaccuracy, delay, or error in the operation of the Registry Lock, or any reliance on the Registry Lock.
Neither Registry Operator nor Com Laude will in any event (whether in contract, tort or otherwise) be liable for any loss of revenue, loss of profits, loss of goodwill, loss of data, or any indirect or consequential loss suffered by you or any end user of Registry Lock, arising from the provision or your use of Registry Lock.
