Helpful Tips

  • Your contact information will be used for the registration of domain names that you purchase, and will be published in the global public Whois database, unless you are an individual and register a TLD that already protects the privacy of individuals (.EU, .BE, .FR, etc.) or if you activate Gandi's Whois Protection service on a domain that supports privacy (some do not).
  • Information that is Inaccurate, missing, or that does not comply with registry rules will often prevent the creation of a domain name.
  • You must enter valid contact information. In case of litigation, you risk losing your domain if the whois contact information is inaccurate. Likewise, if you lose your password, we may need to ask you to supply ID that corresponds exactly to what is provided here.
  • Indicate a valid e-mail address so that we can contact you in order to send e-mail reminders for your contracts before they expire. It's a good idea to use an address that is not associated with the domains you register here.
  • If you are a company and would like to register domain names for different owners, the "Reseller" handle type will give you access to a more appropriate ordering interface.
  • Fields that are grayed out (company, first and last name) during the modification of your personal information cannot be changed directly. If you want to change this information, you will need to carry out an ownership change operation for your domains.
  • Our domain protection service for individuals is free. Once activated, no letter, document or request can be sent to you at the address we substitute for yours. You must acknowledge that you have been informed of this, and assume all responsibility for using this service. Third parties will be informed of this in the whois result as well.
