ICANN to require e-mail or phone veritifcation for new domain names

Posted on Monday, July 01 2013 @ 18:59:35 CEST by

The Verge spreads word that the board of directors of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) have approved a new agreement that will require domain name registrars to verify customer details and maintain information on those who signed up for domains.

Under the new rule, customers will have to verify either their e-mail address or phone number within 15 days of applying for a domain. Without verification, registrars are instructed to suspend domain registrations. On top of that, registrars will be required to maintain information of clients, including details like credit cards, for two years after users cancel their registrations.
Other information like the IP address used to sign up for a registration needs to be recorded and given to ICANN at its request for up to 180 days. Registrants will also need to update their contact information within seven days of any change under the new rules, though it's unclear how that will be enforced — the old rules only provided for 15 days to update such details and data was often outdated.
