Hi,

I just received a WDRP email from my domain registrar for the first time in life. It begins like this :

Dear Admin of ---------.com,

This message is a reminder to help you keep the contact data associated with your domain registration up-to-date. This is a requirement made by ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) through the WDRP (Whois Data Reminder Policy).

Do not reply to this message.

---------my domain's whois information-------

If any of the information above is inaccurate, you must correct it by visiting our website at www.----.com. (If your review indicates that all of the information above is accurate, you do not need to take any action.) Please remember that under the terms of your registration agreement, the provision of false Whois information can be grounds for cancellation of your domain name registration.


Is this a regular email from WDRP or do I have to worry about it? The line about cancellation of domain makes me worried.

I have domain privacy enabled for my domain name (so nobody can see my actual name, address or phone) , can it be a problem?

Thank you.

I get them once a year. It is just to remind you to keep your contact information up to date. They are only going to cancel it if you are doing something fraudulent. Nothing to worry about.
