E-commerce Agreements & Domain Name Assignments

Electronic commerce (ecommerce) is trading carried on by electronic means. E-commerce is generally conducted over the internet, to which access is unrestricted. In its most basic form, this involves a change in the medium of communication: transactions which would otherwise have been concluded by an exchange of letters or documents may instead be concluded by, for example, an exchange of e-mails or more commonly via a website. In its more complex forms, a contract can be concluded by communication between two or more computers without any immediate human intervention.

E-commerce has many attractions for businesses, including:

  • Access to a potentially massive customer base. 
  • The ability to restructure the way that business is done. 
  • The potential for cost savings (particularly in the case of certain sectors such as publishing, music   or computer software, where distribution costs can virtually be eliminated).
  • Significant marketing and advertising opportunities.
  • Speed of transaction.

A number of specific applications have been developed for use on the internet. The most significant of these are: e-mail and the world wide web, which enables users to move from a document (or "web page") at one location (or "website") on the internet to another website, or another page on the same website, simply by clicking on a hypertext link. The key standard that enables websites to be displayed and viewed is the http and the software language used to produce websites is known as hypertext mark-up language (html). The web therefore provides a relatively easy way of navigating around what is otherwise an un-catalogued mass of information. All that is needed to view the hypertext material is a browser software, which enables a user to locate, display and download on the web and various websites and applications which allow users to post and share their own content.
