Upon accomplishment of the purchase and its verification, the domain name shall be transferred to your current registrar. You may maintain your domain name registration at its current registrar or, if possible, you will be authorized to transfer the domain to another registrar at your option. You will be solely responsible for ensuring appropriate domain registration and good balance with your registrar. You will be obliged to pay annual renewal fees directly to your domain name registrar. Registration fees usually vary within the range of $10 to $20 USD per year, depending on the registrar.

Only one refundable domain return is allowed within one calendar year. If BonusDomains discovers that a buyer’s behavior and use of the domain have adversely affected the domain health and value, such domain shall not be subject to refundable return. In all justified cases, BonusDomains will adhere to the Return Policy.

In certain cases, BonusDomains may issue a request for additional verification from the purchaser.
