Nominet Data Quality Policy

What is the Nominet Data Quality Policy?

The .uk domain name registry Nominet have recently changed their policy to made it a requirement that all registrars now inform their customers to validate their registrant's registration information. 

Nominet decides whether a particular domain's registration details are invalid and we will only act upon notification from them.

If you have a Nominet domain name and your registration details are not correct, incomplete or cannot be verified by Nominet's address validation partner, you will receive an email asking you to you to update them.

If the registration details are not corrected, Nominet will then suspend any domains that are not validated within 30 days of being asked to do so.

Why are Nominet doing this?

Nominet are striving to improve and maintain the quality of the data they have for domain name registrants that they publish in the WHOIS database.

They believe it is an important part of ensuring that the UK namespace is a trusted and safe space.

For more information on Nominet's policy changes, please visit their resource page here.

What you need to do.

If you receive an email asking you to validate your domain's registration details then simply click on the link within the email and follow the on screen instructions to update the information.

Once this information has been updated then there should be no further action required. If the details provided can still not be verified you will be contacted again via email.
