ICANN domain transfer policies have changed as of 1 December 2016. Updates to whois information are considered a change of ownership and may warrant a 60-day transfer lock.
In this guide we will show you how to update the WHOIS record for your domain in AMP. When a domain is registered, it is required to have accurate contact information listed in the WHOIS record. This allows the public to view the information regarding the owner of a domain, when they perform a WHOIS lookup. If you do not want your contact information listed publicly with your domain, Domain Privacy is available. On domains that do not have privacy, you can apply any changes to name, address, primary email address, and your phone number.
Important. If you are intending to transfer the domain at any point in the next few months, changes made in the first name, last name, organization name, or administrative email address are considered a change of ownership and may place a 60-day transfer lock on the domain. Read the ICANN transfer policy updates article linked above for more information.
