ICANN domain validation e-mails
06 January 2014, 12:10
17 February 2014, 15:42
As from 1st of January 2014, according to the ICANN regulations now in place, a verification e-mail will be sent to any and all customers that have registered / transferred / amended their gTLDs (see the below extensions list) in the last few weeks.
The verification e-mail will be sent from a 123-reg e-mail address and will contain a link incorporating the following domain name: verify-whois.com - as this is not something enforced directly by 123-reg, but by ICANN, via the portal in question.
The email is a check that must be done by all registrants in order to validate their domain names, therefore please make sure the instructions within the e-mail are being followed accordingly.
The extensions affected by this are including the below:
.asia, .biz, .com, .info, .name, .net, .org, .pro, .tel, .xxx, .bike, .clothing, .guru, .holdings, .singles, .plumbing, .ventures, .camera, .equipment, .estate, .gallery, .graphics, .lighting, .photography
