When a new domain is registered, an email to the Registrant email address specified for the domain to verify contact information is valid by clicking a link that usually included in the verification email . The verification email will be also sent if edit action is made to either of the following Registrant contact fields:

  • Registrant First Name
  • Registrant Last name
  • Registrant Email Address
