I was requested to validate my registration data. What should I do?

Learn how to report registration data inaccuracy to EURid, log into my.eurid.eu, update your contact details in WHOIS, and manage registration changes based on citizenship.

To combat fraudulent domain name use, EURid carries out checks to confirm that the data you provided as the holder of your domain name (called 'Registration data') are accurate and up-to-date, and, ultimately, invites you to review and validate your registration data through the My .eu platform, in compliance with our Privacy Policy.

 

If you have received an email from EURid (no-reply@eurid.eu or whoisaccuracy@eurid.eu) requesting that you review and validate your registration data, please follow these steps by the date or timeframe indicated in the email:[CP1] 

 

  • Log in to the 'My .eu' platform. Insert your domain name and email address linked to your domain name, click on “Request access code”. Insert the code sent to your email address and click on “Login”. Please note the access code sent to your email address can be used only once and expires after 2 hours of receipt.
  • Check the correctness of your registration data. If you need to correct your registration data, contact your registrar or the company through which you registered your domain name and make sure your data is updated. Only then, please login back to the 'My .eu' platform to complete your data validation.
  • Validate your up-to-date registration data. Select one of the available methods and follow the instructions to validate your registration data. A successful validation will not result in the immediate activation of the domain name as this may require manual checks by EURid. You will be notified through the 'My .eu' platform if EURid requires additional actions from your side before approving the validation.

 

Unless you validate your registration data your domain name will be suspended (the status on WHOIS will be Server Hold) on the date or by the timeframe indicated in the email sent by EURid and any new domain name you register or become the holder of will be suspended automatically upon registration/transfer to your name. As a result, your domain name(s) will be inactive.

 

Should you wish to receive further information about your validation case, please log in to My .eu platform to connect with our support team.
