New ICANN Email Validation Policy

As per ICANN’s new Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), Beginning in January, the registrant contact will need to be validated upon the purchase or transfer of a domain name or if the registrant’s first name or last name has been modified. Should any of these occur, CPHosting will send an email requiring an affirmative response from the registrant. Failing to receive an affirmative response from the registrant within 15 days will result in the suspension of the name. The name will subsequently be placed on ‘ClientHold’ status, taking the domain (and related services) offline.

If a registrant has already validated their contact information, this process will not be initiated.

The same validation process will take place if a WHOIS Data Reminder Policy (WDRP) notice, 30 day expiration notice or 5 day expiration notice bounces. It will therefore be of paramount importance to ensure the WHOIS data you provide is correct.

These policy changes are not made by CPHosting, however as reseller domain registration provider they are imposed on us by ICANN.

Please note these policy changes are not made by CPHosting, however as reseller domain registration provider they are imposed on us by ICANN.  ICANN is an regulatory organization responsible for controlling domain name registry system on internet.
