EnCirca Reseller Agreement

Additional Terms for Resellers and their Customers

A reseller is a third-party company that offers domain name registration services through a registrar. They are often the EnCirca Account Owner but not the Domain Registrant. There are additional requirements for resellers of registrars under the 2013 Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), including web posting obligations, disclosure requirements, and oversight by registrars.

  • As a domain name owner, here is a summary of your rights and responsibilities.
  • If you registered your domain name through a reseller of EnCirca and have a complaint, please notify EnCirca support.
  • As a Reseller, by accepting EnCirca’s Terms and Conditions, you are automatically also accepting EnCirca’s Reseller Agreement, as published here.
