Attention Domain Owners: Don’t Ignore “Validate Contact Info” Emails Anymore

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Starting this year, failure to provide proper contact info can lead to trouble for domain owners …

Every year or so it seems, I receive quite a few emails from various domain registrars asking me to verify that the contact information for my domains is correct. Contact information links a person or company, or proxy, to a domain name. This information may change over time, for instance when a site gets sold, the owner moves, or if the phone number changes. Some owners add fake contact information to domain names, while others use proxy services to hide their identity on the Internet and avoid being linked to that particular domain name.
