Whereas MUSD/MCN enjoys access to an on-line service, known as the "INTERNET", operating as an Internet Service Provider, and has established various computer and communications facilities to accomplish such access to provide connectivity between the domain name holder and the Internet, for the purpose of assisting with domain name registrations;


1. Charges and Payments

MUSD/MCN shall bill the customer's account a non-refundable fee of Forty-five Dollars, ($45.00), upon successful Domain Name registration or Domain Name transfer with the Registrar. This fee includes a Forty Dollar ($40.00) MCN initial set-up fee, and the first-month MCN maintenance fee of Five Dollars ($5.00). MUSD/MCN shall bill the customer's account each subsequent month, on the anniversary billing day, for the recurring monthly MCN maintenance fee of Five Dollars ($5.00). Payment must be made within Thirty (30) days of the invoice date. A service charge not to exceed 18% interest per annum, computed on the outstanding account balance, will be applied to overdue accounts. All Domain Name payments are non-refundable.

MUSD/MCN shall bill the customer's account a non-refundable fee of Twenty Dollars, ($20.00) when reactivating a domain which was deactivated due to non-payment of their MUSD/MCN outstanding balance.

MUSD/MCN will charge a separate Tucows Registration fee of $17.30 for .com domain names (prices very for other domain name extensions). This fee will be collected in advance of domain name registration. New domain names are valid for one year from the date that the Registrar activates the domain name. The Registration Fee is non-refundable. For all registered domain names, there will be a renewal registration fee of $17.30 per year per domain name, due on the customer's billing date prior to anniversary date of the domain name activation. This annual fee will keep the domain name valid for one year. Payment must be made in advance on an annual basis. Since we are billed in advance for all registrations, MUSD/MCN must collect this fee in advance, as well. The payment is non-refundable. MCN will provide 60 days advance notice of upcoming renewal of the domain name. The customer must pay for the annual registration renewal in advance for the domain name registration to be renewed. All checks and money orders for registration fees should be made out to MCN, and sent to: Mendocino Community Network, P.O. Box 2445, Mendocino, CA 95460.

The Registrar will delete the domain name from the combined Registrars database on the day after the due date if payment is not received. Domain Names deleted from the database will be available for reuse. MUSD/MCN will assume no liability, and is not responsible for such deletion from the combined Registrars database, resulting from Customer non-payment.

Pre and Post Expiration Notice
30 Day and 5 day pre expiration notices and 3 day post expiration notices and all other notices are sent via email to all MCN domain customers.
