Data validation for COM NET ORG ICANN domains

Screen Shot 2015-05-16 at 16.54.09From January 2014 ICANN have introduced new regulations so that domain owners will have to complete a verification process when a domain is transferred, a new domain is registered or changes are made to the WHOIS details.

An automated email will be sent to the registrant contact as listed on the WHOIS asking you to click on a link to verify the registrant email address.

What will the email look like?

Please be advised that as of the 1st January 2014 it has now become a mandatory requirement from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Name and Numbers (ICANN) that all ICANN accredited registrars verify the WHOIS contact information for all new domain registrations, domain transfers and registrant contact modifications.

You have received this email as you have recently registered one or more domains from ukcheapest with the following registrant details:

Name: 
Email Address:

Under the changes requested by ICANN you need to verify your registrant email address. Please click on the link below to verify this email address.

The domain will be suspended if verification is not completed within 15 days of the verification email being sent. This rule is set by ICANN and not by us.
