What are the new requirements for global domain names since June 2014?
RAA 2013 now requires all registrars of record to validate the registrant's postal address and contact email address. This validation process only applies to gTLD domains, and must be completed whenever:
- a new domain is registered;
- a domain is transferred in; or
- an update is made to contact details on a domain.
Email address validation:
Registrants will be sent an email notice (and subsequent reminder notices, if applicable) requesting they validate their email address by clicking on a link within the message. The contact email address must be validated within 15 days or the domain name is at risk of being suspended.
Postal address validation:
Validation will be automatically performed using a third party global address database supplied by Google and a warning will be displayed at the time of entry. If an invalid postal address is submitted, the domain name is at risk of being suspended.
Due to GDPR, the whois information for registrants of global domain names is now Redacted. You are no longer able to see the name or contact details of a global domain name.
