How to update you WHOIS info with ZabwinoHosting/Enom

According to ICANN regulation, whenever a domain is registered, accurate information must be submitted along with that registration. Maintaining accurate WHOIS information can be vital to managing your domain.

Be sure to provide a valid email address for your WHOIS as you will be required to verify your WHOIS information via email when changes are made to the registrant, admin, tech or billing contact information listed in the WHOIS. If verification is not received within 15 days, the domain name will be suspended.

It is recommended that you use an email address independent of the domain you are registering since you will need access to this email address to verify your WHOIS information.

Why Update Your WHOIS Information

Maintaining updated contact information for your domain name in the WHOIS database is an important practice. You may not realize it, but there are certain important reasons why you should update this information, especially the registrant contact email address for your domain.

About the WHOIS Database

Your registrar is responsible for publishing the relevant domain information in a WHOIS database. A WHOIS database is an online directory where the general public can look up domain names using the WHOIS search tool.

How this works is when you have purchased your domain name from ZabwinoHosting through our registrar LaunchPad, eNom, or through other organizations accredited by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), these agencies report the WHOIS information provided upon the domain purchase to the official WHOIS database.

Inaccurate Information can lead to Domain Expiration and Redemption

Domain expiration can be disruptive. ICANN provides for a redemption period, during which the registrar temporarily deactivates the expired domain name. But reactivating the domain name during this period requires a reactivation fee of $75 to $90 USD, in addition to the renewal fee (some registrars charge as much as $250).
