ICANN verification of domain name registrant information.



Starting on 01-01-2014 ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, began requiring that all domain name registrants enter valid registrant information. To enforce this new policy all domains now must verify their registrant information. When a domain name is registered a verification email is sent to the email address entered as the Registrant contact address. This email will contain a link allowing the information to be verified.

If the information is not verified within fourteen days of registration the domain name will begin to direct to an ICANN landing page which can be used to request that the verification email be resent. Once the information has been verified it can take 24 to 48 hours for it to begin pointing to the site built with Webs. 

If you did not enter any information or did not enter valid information you will not receive the email. In these cases you will need to update your registrant information through your Webs account in order to receive the email allowing you to verify the registrant information on file. Information may be updated by going to Dashboard, then Domains & Email, and then Registration Info. Be sure to scroll down and click the "Save Whois Settings" button after updating information.
