has anyone else had the same experience?
123.Reg who host my domain name ( unchanged for the 10 years or thereabouts that i havehad it) sent me an email saying that Nominet are unable to vaidate my details and therefore
"my Domain registration details need updating to avoid disruption to my services" i rweceived the email last week and replied to 123reg pointing out thsat they have al th necesayry details and thta none of the rdetails haschanged. today i have received an almost identical email from them,again sayaing that I need to update my details
Is this a new form of spam? Or is it simply a mistake by either 123Reg or by nominet? has anyone else had the same experience?
Go to Nominet Site and click .uk Domain Names and look at the various sections therein.
I think you will find that there is an obligation to confirm your details to Nominet (the registering authority). I don't know how often this is required, but I have had to do it on occasion. I suggest that you get in touch with 123Reg and ask their advice.
thanks, Batch, for the suggestion . I've now written to Nominet and wait to see what they willsay.
Good Morning, my name is Karra I work here at 123-Reg,
I have come across your post and would like to help you further.
I can confirm those emails are being sent by us and are not spam. We have sent out these notification emails to customers who have been flagged up as having incorrect registration information on their domain name. We do urge all of our customers to check their details and update as needed. Please remember that during this period these updates can be made free of charge directly through 123-reg. If you are not sure which details need changing please let me know and I will be able to advise you.
If you would like to discuss this further which I will be more than happy to do, please send me your usernamer/domain name to [email protected]
thanks everyone, especially thiose who suggested contacting Nominet.
Nominet have replied sending info about how to update my details as registered with them.
reading between the lines ( and this is a guess) i think the problem has arisen because if I were starting now, i would have to give my full name,not just my last name - which is all that 123 needed originally.
but 123reg HAVE my full name and it is 123 reg who will have been in touch with Nominet (I have never previously had to contact Nominet )
IN other words , 123 already have the info that Nominet need, and it puzzles me why 123 did not give this info to Nominet! i haven't quite completed the work needed by Nominet, but when I do it will be thnks ( as so often) to help from folk at PCA
