ICANN's new rules for domain registrants

ICANN's new rules for domain registrants require you to verify your contact details

From January 1st 2014, there are some important new rules mandate by The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to be aware of. These rules are set by the internet's governing body ICANN and affect all Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) such as .COM, .NET, .ORG, .BIZ, .INFO or .NAME as well as upcoming new gTLDs.

Some important points of this newly initiated process are:
1. The verification email will be sent out as soon as the email address is associated with a domain name. Additional reminders will be sent on the 7th and 14th day, if the verification isn’t done until then.
2. The verification email will be sent out from Ingenious Website Solution’s email address. It shall be a compulsory system mail, which shall not be customized or turned off.
3. In the 15 day verification notice period, the domain name will be disabled. The domain holder will not be obstructed from using their domain name in any way, unless they don’t complete the verification process in the allowed time.
4. Once an email address has been verified, then all subsequent registrations, transfers or contact updates that use this email address will not require any verification.
5. Once a year, we send out a Whois Data Reminder email to the Registrant of the domain name, in accordance with ICANN guidelines. We shall monitor the delivery status of these emails – if the mail sent to a registrant email address of a domain name were to bounce back, our compliance team will review the case and take appropriate action against the domain name.

We, Ingenious Website Solution team request you to kindly react to those emails send for verification process in your provided e-mail address, otherwise the new ICANN policies mandate that your domain name will be disabled automatically.

This new mandate from ICANN is just another measure that illustrates how important it is to have accurate contact information for the domain name holder. For our resellers, we recommend that you communicate with your customers to ensure they co-operate with us and understand this requirement and watch out for these compulsory emails in the future.

If you have any doubts or questions about this new rule, please reach out to our support team and we’d be happy to discuss it with you. You can reach to us at or call us at +91 916 345 6258 / +91 33 – 400 618 63
