Let's Edit Your Domain Contact Info
Each domain has contact information attached to it, so that continued ownership can be ensured.
There are many valid reasons to have accurate contact information such as being able to log in to the domain's backend and ensuring that you are personally contacted if the domain's ownership ever falls into dispute.
Note: If you have purchased Domain Privacy, it will restrict who will be able to see the information. In most cases this means that ICANN (the global organization who manages domains on the internet) and your domain host will be among the only entities who will know that you are the owner of the domain.
This is useful because these are precisely the organizations who you would want to hear from if something happens regarding your domain. Not having privacy would make it available to anyone on the internet who does a whois search and as a result you might receive more spam marketing.
If your domain is managed elsewhere, you will need to update your contact info by logging into the registrar.
For the updates to take effect, this will take 24-48 hours. You may receive an email in order to verify the updates.
