What is the RAA Verification Process?

As of January 1, 2014, ICANN  has mandated a new security rule, by which all WHOIS contact information for all new domain registrations and Registrant contact modifications has to be verified and confirmed.

The RAA Verification Process i s mandatory in two cases: New Domain name registration, or if  the Registrant contact information is updated.

Every time the Registrant contact is updated, a RAA verification email is sent to the new email address. The Registrant is reqired to confirm the address, clicking on a link included in the RAA verification email. The changes in Registrant's data will not be reflected on WHOIS until the RAA email is verified.

NOTE: if the new email address on the contact information has already been previously verified, a new RAA verification email is not needed and will not be sent.

the Registrant has 15 days to confirm; if confirmation is not given, the domain name will be suspended.

What if  the Registrant email address is incorrect?
It's necessary to update it with a valid one, so a new RAA Verification email will be resent to the new address. 

IIf the Registrant lost or cancelled this email, raise a support ticket: we'll sent a new RAA Verification email manually.
