This article will show you how to modify the contact details for individual domains.

Domain contacts provide information about the domain owner, the administrative contact, the technical contact, and the contact for WHOIS information.

Step 2
Click Domains under My Products in the left side menu.

Step 4
Now you can customize the domain contact data for the Registrant Contact (Reg-C), the Administrative Contact (Admin-C) and the Technical Contact (Tech-C), by clicking on the relevant link:
  • Edit Reg-C
  • Edit Admin-C
  • Edit Tech-C
    Please note, that you can not edit the Technical Contact (Tech-C) for all domain extensions.
Step 5
Enter the updated information and check the boxes to accept the Terms & Conditions and confirm that you are authorized to make these changes.
Please note:
An update to the domain owner's e-mail address requires validation. Please expect a request to confirm the data change at the newly-listed e-mail address if we haven't yet validated your data. The updated domain owner data will only be applied to WHOIS after successful verification.

Further information is available in the ICANN E-mail Verification article.
Please note:
If you are changing the domain owner, please note the following additional points:

- As soon as the details have been changed, both the old and the new domain owner will be automatically notified by e-mail. No confirmation is required from the previous domain owner.

- After changing the Registrant, ICANN regulations require us to block transfers to another registrar for 60 days. If you plan to transfer the domain name to a different registrar within 60 days, you are advised to finish the transfer before the Change of Registrant to avoid triggering the 60-day lock.
Step 6
Click Save to apply the changes and begin the verification process (if necessary).
