Registrant Contact Information and the ICANN WHOIS Data Reminder Policy (WDRP)
On 17 May 2018 the ICANN Board adopted a Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data. This page is under review and will be updated to address the Temporary Specification.
- Keep contact information associated with your domain name registration up-to-date at all times so you receive important notifications about your domain name.
- You should receive a reminder at least annually from your registrar to review your contact information to be sure it's up-to-date. This is a result of the WHOIS Data Reminder Policy (WDRP), an ICANN policy designed for your protection.
When you register a domain name, you must give your registrar accurate and reliable contact details, and correct and update them promptly if there are any changes during the term of the registration period.
If you give wrong information on purpose, or don't update your information promptly when there is a change, your domain name registration may be suspended or even cancelled. This could also happen if you don't respond to inquiries by your registrar if they contact you about the accuracy of your contact information.
Contact your registrar to update your contact information. ICANN does not (and cannot) verify or update your contact information. Only your registrar can. See How do I correct my WHOIS information for more details.
