.GLOBAL DOMAINS PORTAL TERMS OF USE.

Last updated: 22 May 2018.

Introduction. These Terms of Use, the Acceptable Use Policy, the Privacy Policy, and all policies posted on our site set out the terms on which we offer you access to and use of our site, services, and tools (collectively "Services").

All policies, including the Acceptable Use Policy and the Privacy Policy are incorporated into these Terms of Use. You agree to comply with all the above when accessing or using our Services.

.GLOBAL Domain Portal ("Portal") is provided to you by Dot Global Domain Registry, 6th floor, South Bank House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland, (“Dot Global”).

These terms are effective from the Effective Date as listed above.

Your Account. In order to access and use some or a portion of the Services, you may be required to register with us and set up an account using your personal details.  You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Account.


If you believe your Account may have been compromised or misused, contact us immediately at registry@go.global.


Use of .GLOBAL Domains Portal. As a condition of your use of the Portal, you agree that you will not:

Listing Your Domain Names.

When you list a domain for sale on our Site (“Listing”), you agree to keep any Listing you have added to the Portal up-to-date, including ensuring that all links resolve to a working website (“Working Website”) that must contain clear and concise information information about how the domain owner can be contacted to purchase the domain (eg. email address, a contact form, etc). Domains will not be listed if the Listing does not link to a Working Website that complies with our Acceptable Use Policy.

In order to preserve a safe and secure Site and Services for our users, when you create a Listing, a verification email will be sent to the Administration contact as listed in the WHOIS record for the Domain.  Domains will not be listed if the Admin contact does not verify the domain.

If a domain has been sold, the seller must remove it from the Portal within 48 hours. Furthermore, sellers must remove domains from the Domain Portal immediately if a warning has been issued, or as soon as any knowledge has been received that the rights of a third party or existing laws could be violated by the listing. This shall apply until legal clarification of the situation has been made.

We do not take any responsibility for any offer, sale, or financial transaction that results from a Listing on the Portal.

Abuse of Portal Services.  Please report problems and policy breaches to us at registry@go.global. You are solely responsible for all information that you submit to the Portal and any consequences that may result from your Listing. We reserve the right at our discretion to refuse or delete or take-down Listings that we believe is inappropriate or breaching these terms of policies. We also reserve the right at our discretion to restrict a user's usage of the site either temporarily or permanently, or refuse a user's registration. Without limiting other remedies, we may issue warnings, limit or terminate our Services, remove hosted content and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the Portal if we think that they are creating problems or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies. However, whether we decide to take any of these steps, we do not accept any liability for monitoring the Portal or for unauthorized or unlawful content on the Portal or sites linked to from the Portal. You also recognise and accept that the Portal is not under any obligation to monitor any data or content which is submitted to or available on the site.



Fees. Using the Portal Services is generally free, but we may sometimes charge a fee for certain Services. If the service you use incurs a fee, you will be able to review and accept terms that will be clearly disclosed at the time you post your listing. Our fees are quoted in US Dollars, and we may change them from time to time. We will notify you of changes to our fee policy by posting such changes on the site. We may choose to temporarily change our fees for promotional events or new Services; these changes are effective when we announce the promotional event or new service.


You are responsible for paying the fees that you incur when they're due. If you don't, we may limit your ability to use the Services. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms.

Content. The Portal Services contain content from us, you, and other users.
