Duty to verify the key system does not exist.
- The different Domains are administered by a multitude of different, usually national organizations (registries).Each organization which allocates domains has different requirements for the registration and administration of domains, and the proceedings in domain name disputes. Hosted Power is required to pass on these policies to their customers.

Service will be interrupted on accounts that reach 1 week past due through suspension or termination. Hosted Power may temporarily deny service or terminate the agreement upon the failure of Subscriber to pay charges when due.
