Domain Name Validation

Validate Your Domain Name

As a registrar, Freecom registers domains on your behalf, however, it means we are required to follow certain rules and procedures. The following will explain one of these, namely the contact validation policy.

What is the contact validation policy?
The contact validation policy has been designed as a means to ensure that the contact details related to your domain name are always up to date. We are obliged to send you a contact validation email every year to confirm your details. We will also send one every time you modify your contact details or when you register certain domains, as confirmation.

What do I need to do?

When you receive the validation email it will have the Subject: Urgent Domain Validation is Needed, it is important that you follow the steps in the email.

  1. The email will contain a validation link which you will be asked to click on to validate your email address.
  2. It is important that you validate your email address within one year of your last validation. Failure to do so will lead to the suspension of your account and any domain names associated with it.
  3. At the foot of the email you will find the domain names that relate to your email address.
  4. Once you have validated your email address, you’re done for another year.

We remind you that keeping your contact details up to date ensures you receive all the important emails we send you, such as invoices, renewal /expiry dates, and changes to domain registration policies.
