1. Explanation of items and terminology
1.1 "Domain Name backorder&auction" domain name subscription refers to the preemptive registration of a domain name to be deleted. According to the rules of the domain name registration authority (registry), when the registered domain name expires and the user fails to renew, the registry will delete the domain name after a period of time. The domain name can be re-registered after deletion.
GNAME provides a subscription service that allows users to subscribe to a domain name until the domain name is deleted by the registry. When a domain name is deleted by the registry, GNAME will automatically submit a registration request to the registry, and the success rate of automatic registration submitted by the system is much higher than that of manual registration due to the first-come first-served rule of domain names. After booking, they will enter the auction process, and the final bidder will get the ownership of the domain name.
1.2 "GNAME" refers to the cybersquatting platform that provides users with the systems, technology and related support needed to conduct online domain name backorder activities.
1.3 "User" refers to the GNAME members who conduct domain name transactions through the domain name backorder system provided by GNAME, including individual users (natural persons, individual proprietorships, individual partnerships and individual industrial and commercial households, etc.) And unit users (state organs, corporate partnerships, institutions, social organizations and other organizations, etc.).
1.4 "Proxy Auction" means that the buyer can set the auction amount of the domain name according to his psychological price. When the auction is higher than the current minimum auction amount (minimum auction = current price markup margin)The system will automatically help the user to auction according to the minimum auction amount and set the user's auction as the proxy price. The system will automatically auction upward with the minimum increment amount according to the auction of other buyers, so as to maintain the position of the buyer ahead of the bidder until the buyer's auction is surpassed by other buyers (exceeding means that the proxy price is invalid).
