Verification required for new gTLD registrations and owner changes

ICANN policy requires that all newly registered gTLD domains (e.g. .COM, .ORG, .PHOTOS) must be verified after registration. Re-verification is also required if the owner/registrant details have recently been changed. An owner change could be because the domain was sold, or the contact details are missing or outdated and you received a WDRP notice, or for other reasons.

To verify, you will be sent an email from to your domain's listed registrant/owner email address. You need to click on a link in that email.

This verification must be completed within two weeks of registration or the owner change or the domain will be suspended by the registry until it is completed, and until that's done any website or email connected to the domain name will not work.

All registrars and domain owners must comply with these requirements. Additionally, as registrar we are not authorized or able to verify domain email addresses on your behalf.

We recommend adding to your email contacts/address book to prevent the message being caught as spam. (If you don't see the verification email, we recommend checking the spam/junk folder.)

If needed, you can re-send the verification email from your domain dashboard while logged in to your iwantmyname account:

{% if case.custom_domain == '' %}
{% else %}{{case.custom_domain | uri_encode}}
{% endif %}

Sometimes the domain's owner/registrant email address is no longer valid. In these cases we will need to assist in updating it and re-sending verification, since you will not be able to receive the original verification email. If that is the case, please login to your iwantmyname account and get in touch using our support form and we can get that fixed:
