Starting on February 25 2015, there’s a new process for
verifying a domain registrant’s contact information when a new domain is
registered, transferred or there’s a change in domain ownership. This new
process is mandated by ICANN.
This new verification process is required, but easy to do
and is only needed once per a registrant’s set of contact information. Whether
your client’s domain is registered through our company or through another
registrar, the same process will need to be followed. Even if your client has a
Domain Privacy service, they will still need to verify their contact
The process entails having your client click on a link in an
email to verify their contact information that appears in the WHOIS database.
This email will be sent directly from Aplus.net to your client. Due to
compliance and auditing requirements, this email does have to be sent from our
systems, and we are unable to have resellers like yourself send this directly
to your customers.
IMPORTANT: If your client receives a verification email and
does not respond to it within 15 days of initial receipt the domain will be
suspended. This means that their website will no longer be available to anyone
trying to visit their site.
