Whois Data Reminder Policy (WDRP)

At least annually, we are required to send the registrant the current Whois information, and remind the registrant that provision of false Whois information can be grounds for cancellation of his domain name registration. Registrants must review their Whois data, and make any corrections.

Failure to verify your information will result in temporary suspension until you have verified it. Please click this link for additional information on how to check and update your Whois Contact Information.

The email has the subject line: The verification of your domains is required - {$domain_name}

This email is sent from the address registrant-verification@ispapi.net and it is valid

An Important Note About a Suspended Domain
If you happen to miss the validation email and you are using an email address @yourdomain.com that is suspended, you will need to login to the Evolve Web Hosting Portal and change the registrant email address to another email address that Does Not end @yourdomain.com (use a Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc address). That way the verification email can be sent to you and received. If you’d like to update it after verification to again use an email address @yourdomain.com you may do so.
When the box appears asking if you want to check the box and avoid the 60 day transfer lock, Do Not check the box. Checking the box means that both the current and new email address holder need to validate the change and that can not be done at this time because your domain is temporarily suspended.

Subject Line of the email is: The verification of your domains is required - yourdomain.com

Contents of the email: As a new Registrant of a domain name or by changing your name or email address for existing domains, you need to verify this contact information. For new registrations you must verify your email address[1]. For changes to existing domain names, you must verify the name or email modification[1]

To verify the contact information, please click on the link below. Please note that without timely verification of your email address or modified contact information, you can’t fully manage your domain name and your domain name will stop resolving after its respective Verification Deadline Date below.

Link to click on and verify is included
