ICANN Domain Verification
Published: 11th Feb 2014 in News
Recent changes to ICANN's (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) policies mean that some domain name owners will be required to verify their contact details via their domain registrar.
If you are required to verify your details you will receive an e-mail notification from your domain name registrar. Please be aware of any possible fake or spam e-mails imitating this request and always make sure that the e-mail is from your domain registration company.
You will be required to verify your details within 15 days of being asked to do so. Failure to do this within the 15 day timeline means that your domain will be suspended. Your domain registrar is obliged to make the suspension until your details are verified.
If your domain is suspended your site will not be available online and you will see a message like this at your web address (will vary depending on domain registrar):
If we are the e-mail contact for a client's domain then we will carry out this verification on their behalf.
To find out more please see ICANN's information about verification of contact details.
