Keep Your Info Current!

When’s the last time you checked the contact information on your domain name registration?

I admit it. I’m not the best at making sure my information is current. I get the yearly ICAAN reminders to do so, but they end up in the “I’ll get to it” folder. We’ve run into situations a few times where out of date contact information causes a delay to getting a project going. Once, the client just gave up and changed his domain name (that’s a bit of a different story involving a bitter middleman that I’ll chat about later).

I was lucky today. I went to update a setting on a personal site and realized that the contact info was all out of date. The address and number were a few houses ago and worse, my email listed was one that I had long closed. Somehow, I remembered the password. If I hadn’t, it could have been a long and painful process to be granted access back to it.

Lesson learned.

If your email, phone number and/or address has changed since you’ve lasted updated your contact info, go change it. Change it now! If you need help with this, let us know. We’re always glad to help.
