ICANN domain transfer policies have changed as of 1 December 2016. Updates to whois information are considered a change of ownership and could potentially cause a 60-day transfer lock on your domain.
In this guide, we will show you how to update the WHOIS record for your domain in AMP. When a domain is registered, it is required to have accurate contact information listed in the WHOIS record. This allows the public to view the information regarding the owner of a domain, when they perform a WHOIS lookup. If you do not want your contact information listed publicly with your domain, Domain Privacy is available. On domains that do not have privacy you can apply any changes to name, address, primary email address, and your phone number.
