Domain suspended pending ICANN verification

If your website is showing a notice with a heading

You have reached a domain that is pending ICANN verification.

it means that you have failed to respond to a verification email for a domain registration or a change in registrant information.

As of January 1, 2014 all ICANN accredited registrars must verify the Registrant WHOIS contact information for all new domain registrations and Registrant contact modifications for generic top-level domains (gTLD's) such as .biz, .com, .info, .me, .name, .net, and .org.

Therefore if you have registered a domain with us, or amended your details, you will receive a verification email from the registrar to your registered email address.

If you fail to respond to this email within 2 weeks THEY WILL suspend your domain until you have completed the verification process.

Please check your SPAM folder or Junk email box if you think you have not received this email.

Please note: This does apply to country code top-level domains (ccTLD's) such as those ending in .uk.

ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Name and Numbers) are the global organisation that co-ordinates the registration and distribution of domain names. You can visit their site to read more About Verification of Contact Information.
