IMPORTANT - Pre-Registration Billing
As of June 7, 2010, HEXONET will attempt to withdraw the total cost of all your .TEL IDN pre-registrations from your reseller account. This deduction is only to reserve funds in case all your pre-registrations are successful. Reserved funds will be returned back to your account if any pre-registrations are not successful or if you delete a pre-registration 24 hours prior to the launch date.
Please note, that 24 hours prior to the actual "Go Live", HEXONET will stop accepting pre-registrations. Additional domain requests will be queued up and submitted to the registry once our main batch-queue has been submitted successfully. As always, if any pre-registrations should fail, refunds will automatically be applied to your reseller account.
