New ICANN Domain Verification Rules Introduced for 2014

As from the 1st of January 2014 ICANN have introduced a mandatory domain verification security system for all top level domains (.COM, .NET, .ORG, .BIZ, .INFO or .NAME as well as upcoming new gTLDs.).

As soon as you purchase a top level domain, transfer or amend the contact details of your top level domain you will be sent an email to confirm and verify the domain contacts. If you fail to acknowledge within 14 days your domain and therefore website will be disabled until the verification procedure is complete.

As domain owners we all should be aware of the responsibilities and look out for emails sent to the domain owner.

A few domain owners have been caught out with this new process by not checking their email and their website have been deactivated. If this happens to you a new email can be re-sent for you to verify either from the holding page (ICANN will replace your site with) or by updating the contact details again in you domain control panel.

Summary

As from January 1st 2014 you will be sent a verification email if you…

    1. Purchase and new top level domain.
    2. Transfer a top level domain.
    3. Change the domain contact details.

Please make sure the email address used for your Admin Contact is an email address you can access, are prioritised and are not inadvertently put in Spam. If you’d like to know more how this might effect you please contact support and we can talk you though the process.

Extend your Domain Name Registrations periods at any time of the year

We’ve made a change to how domain registration renewals are made and controlled in your Customer Centre. Rather than waiting for the domains renewal date and your renewal email to duly arrive you can now extend the domain registration (securing it up to a maximum of 10 years) at any time of the year. This even includes extending your .co.uk domain registrations up to 10 years.

To extend and secure your domain registration for longer period at any point in the domain registration period; log into your Customer Centre and go to Manage Domains. Follow the domain renew links and select the extended domain registration period.
