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.

Who is ICANN?

ICANN are the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers who set out policies for registrars of gTLD domains.

2. Go to My Domains
3. Go to Manage Domain
4. Go to Verification and hit Resend Verification Email.

What if I have WHOIS ID protection enabled?

ID protection hides your contact details from the WHOIS but does not change the contact details registered to your domain. The verification email will still reach the registrant email address.

To check or update the registrant email address, please login to your Client Portal and follow the steps below:

1. Go to Domains
2. Go to My Domains
3. Go to the drop-down arrow next to Manage Domain
4. Hit Edit Contact Information

What happens if I don’t complete the verification?

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.
