Removed Domain Privacy: Email from Melbourne IT for email verification

  • Answered
I removed Domain Privacy from my domains and received emails for each domain name from the following email address: Melbourne IT The subject line was: "Email verification required for _my domain name inserted here_" Can you please confirm if I should respond to these or not? I am afraid this is some sort of scam and would really prefer that these kinds of things come from you guys since I registered the domains with you. Thanks, Mike
Hello Mike,

Thanks for the question. Actually, this is a legitimate response. Due to new ICANN rules, they are now checking when changes are made to the contact information that is part of the domain. This is being done for security purposes. Any change to the information saved for the domain registration will result in these emails from a domain registrar (the rule applies to ALL domain registrars). Please make sure to send a response to Melbourne IT. If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
