WHOIS Information Page

You are in the updated Knowledge Base for the Canvas Theme.
If you are still using the old theme you can view the correct Knowledge Base here: https://help.easydns.com/.
The WHOIS INFORMATION page can only be accessed for domains where we are the current registrar. To get to the WHOIS INFORMATION just click on the WHOIS link for said domain:

Once there, you should see a page that looks like the following:

 

 

The WHOIS INFORMATION page for your domain includes the following sections:

1. Registry Lock
2. WHOIS Privacy
3. Nameservers
4. Custom Text Message
5. Contact Information

Registry Lock
The registry lock keeps domains from being transferred away by accident and/or Domain Slamming. Should you need to transfer a domain away from easyDNS, you will need to disable the Registry Lock by clicking EDIT and then choosing DISABLE.

WHOIS Privacy
The Whois Privacy feature ‘masks’ a domain’s ownership information with easyDNS information. This section allows the user to either enable or disable the Whois Privacy for said domain.

NOTE: Whois Privacy is included with all our service levels except DOMAIN PLUS. If you do not see this feature and would like to add it for your domain, you can do so through the ADD ONS link located within your account. Please click HERE for more information.

Nameservers
This section displays the nameservers you are currently delegated to. If you would like to see which easyDNS nameservers you should be using, just click on EDIT and view the servers diplayed in bold.

Custom Text Message
This feature allows you to set a custom message to display in the registrant response for your Whois information when anyone does a lookup.

NOTE: Message must be limited to 5 lines, standard ASCII characters only, with no HTML.

Contact Information
This is the information that will show up in your Whois records, and by ICANN regulations, must be correct. Users can edit/change the ownership information for a domain by clicking on the EDIT link.

Domains are seen as intellectual properties so its vital that valid information is entered by the user. If there is ever any kind of legal dispute over the ownership of a domain name, the ownership information will determine the rightful owner.

NOTE: Changes to ownership information for .UK domains as well as all domains ending in .UK (i.e .CO.UK) require a £10 plus VAT charge and must be made through Nominet directly. We would NOT be able to assist with this. Further details can be found HERE.

NOTE: To update the ownership details of your .CA domain, please see THIS tutorial.
