For new registrations, the registration fee has to be paid within a month of the registration. An invoice will be sent by paper mail. In case the fee has not been paid, a reminder invoice will be sent by paper mail, as well as by electronic mail. If the registration fee is not paid within a month after the reminder, the domain name will be removed from the BE nameserver.

If the renewal fee is not paid within a month after the reminder, the domain name will be removed from the BE nameserver.
The Hadopimayonnaise accepts only requests for domain names from a commercial legal entity, a public or private institute or organisation. The Hadopimayonnaise does not accept names for individuals (for non-commercial purposes) or informal groups.
Acceptable domain names must conform to the following criteria:
- the proposed domain name must conform to the syntax rules for domain names. A domain name agrees with the syntax rules if it contains only "a-z", "A-Z", "0-9" and "-", and it does *NOT* start with "-".
- the proposed domain name is different from already assigned names. If the name is already registered, a new name has to be choosen.
- the proposed domain name is a good identification for the applicant. Acceptable names are:
- the full name of the organisation, its tradename, an existing or new abbreviation of the organisation's name and a trademark held by the requesting organisation. A trademark can be requested at The Benelux Trademarks Office.
- two letter names are refused if the proposed name is in the list of country codes according to ISO-3166. The use of other two letter names is strongly discouraged; two letter names will only be accepted if they are identical to the company name.
- Top Level Domain (TLD) names are refused (this includes the previous restriction).
- very general names are not accepted, unless the requesting organisation holds a trademark on the proposed name.
Requests for domain names based on the name of the organisation or its tradename are accepted only for organisations located in Belgium. Requests for domain names based on trademarks are only accepted if the trademark is valid for Belgium.
The party requesting registration of a domain name certifies that, to her/his knowledge, the use of this name does not violate trademark or other statutes. The applicant must demonstrate that the proposed name satisfies the criteria for acceptable domain names.
Registration of a domain name does not confer any legal rights to that name and any disputes between parties over the rights to use a particular name are to be settled between the contending parties using normal legal methods (see RFC 1591).
The applicant should be aware of the possibility that its tradename might be identical or very similar to someone elses tradename (whereas they do not conflict outside the Internet-environment). The Law on Commercial Practices and the Protection of the Consumer of 14 july 1991 protects the tradename agaist unfair commercial practices. Jurisprudence protects a tradename agaist the danger of confusion. It is unclear how this 'danger of confusion' will be interpreted in the 'on-line' environment.
