ICANN Domain Verification

Follow

 

ICANN requires that you verify your contact information after purchasing a domain. This is an important process to comply with ICANN's regulations. If you fail to follow this process, ICANN will suspend your domain until you verify your information. 

If you purchased a domain with us when signing up for our Web Hosting service, you will receive an email with instructions and a link to verify your email address and contact information. In this article, we’ll guide you through this process.

  Note

Credit Repair Cloud doesn’t have any control over this process. ICANN is a nonprofit organization responsible for coordinating the maintenance and procedures of several internet databases. We strongly recommend you to follow this process, otherwise, your domain will be suspended by ICANN.

To start, make sure you have the following:

  • A domain purchased through My Credit Repair Site
  • Access to the email used to register the domain

  Note

These instructions apply when purchasing a domain directly through us at MyCreditRepairSite. Domain verification is always required, regardless of where you buy your domain. However, instructions will vary depending on your domain registrar.
