Q: Where do these emails come from & do I need to do everything it is asking me to do?
Several months ago we sent you a notice to review and update the
contact information for your domain name(s). This is a follow-up to
ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers)
requires all accredited registrars to ask their domain
administrators/registrants to review domain name contact data
annually, and make any changes necessary to ensure accuracy.
Under ICANN rules and the terms of your registration agreement,
PROVIDING FALSE CONTACT INFORMATION CAN BE GROUNDS FOR DOMAIN NAME
CANCELLATION (to review the ICANN policy, visit:
1. Go to http://www.securepaynet.net/gdshop/rhp/default.asp?prog_id=calcoastwebdesign&isc=ICANN0608b
NOTE: If the link does not work, copy and paste the URL into your browser.
2. Click on the “ICANN” text link at the top left side of the page.
3. You will be taken to a landing page and asked to enter your
Domain Information Key:
4. Enter your key and click “Go.”
5. Review the contact information on each of your domain names.
If you find that your domain contact data is current and accurate,
there’s no need to take action. If, however, your domain contact
information is inaccurate, you must correct it. To make a correction,
log in to “My Account” with your customer number or log in name and
password. Click “Manage Domains,” select the domain to update, then
Should you have any questions or believe you have received this email
in error, please email us at email@example.com or call our
customer support line at (480) 624-2500. Thank you for your attention.”
A: These are auto-generated emails that all domain owners get. If you have changed anything as far as contact info goes in the last year (name, email, phone,etc) then you will need to follow the instructions given in the email. If nothing has changed, then you can ignore this email.
Domains are set up so that you get an email when they are about to expire or you have a card about to expire. As long as your email is up to date, you are fine.
