Domain Name Registrant Verification Emails
Posted by Joe Rebis on 20 February 2014 12:33 PM

THIS IS AN INFORMATIONAL EMAIL. NO ACTION IS REQUIRED. IT ONLY APPLIES IF YOU REGISTERED YOUR DOMAIN AT EPHOST.

If you currently have a domain registered through EPhost please note a Domain Name Registrant Verification system has been put into place by our upstream registrar. This means that any changes to the registrant contact details, including email address updates, will need to be verified by email.

Once a change is detected to the Registrant Contact Details an immediate verification email sent to Registrant's email. You have two weeks to verify the email by clicking the link in the email. We suggest you do this right away. Unverified domains will have their registration suspended until verified. This is NOT an EPhost policy but rather a new requirement by ICANN and our upstream provider. All accredited domain name registrars will require a similar process.

More Information:

As of January 1, 2014 the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will mandate that all ICANN accredited registrars begin verifying the Registrant WHOIS contact information for all new domain registrations and Registrant contact modifications.
