ICANN has started a policy that requires all domain information to be accurate and verified.
This information will be tested via sending an email anytime there is a change to your domain registration. This includes renewals, updated name/location.
The validation process is a 15 day window during which a Registrant must provide an affirmative response to an email that OpenSRS will send to them. The email contains a link that the Registrant is asked to click. When they click this link, they are taken to a page that displays the email address, first and last name that they used to register the domain. The validation email message also includes a link to the domain registration terms and conditions and a checkbox that they must click to indicate that they agree to those terms and conditions. Failure to respond to this email will result in the domain being suspended.
