Domain Contact Verification E-mail

When you register a new domain, accept an incoming domain transfer to your 1&1 account or update the registrant contact (Reg-C) of an existing domain name, you will receive an e-mail verification request. As part of the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) verification process, this e-mail verification is a mandatory procedure for all domain names so that we can confirm that the e-mail address listed for the domain is your e-mail address.

In order to confirm the contact e-mail address, you will need to click on the link attached to the verification e-mail sent after updating your contact details, transferring a domain, or registering a new domain.

You must verify the link within 2 weeks of receiving the initial verification e-mail otherwise:

  • Newly registered domains or incoming domain transfers that have not verified the contact e-mail will be deactivated.
  • The contact details for an existing domain will not be updated until the confirmation link has been clicked.
