Domain Contact Details

Each domain registered must include contact details. These contact details are entered into a WHOIS database so that the domain owner can be contacted if necessary for various reasons. For domains registered with, your Myhost account details are used for each domain by default. It is possible to Update the Domain Contact Details so that different details are used for each type of contact via the client area.

    • Reg-C (Registrant Contact)
      The organization or person that has the rights to use (or "ownership" of) the domain.
    • Admin-C (Administrative Contact)
      Contact person for the domain for administrative, non-technical matters. Example, for legal matters, change of ownership, etc.
    • Tech-C (Technical Contact)
      Contact person for domain's technical matters. If it is not set up, 1&1 Hostmaster acts as Tech-C for your domains. By default we set Tech-C as a billing contact (Bill-C).

The Registrant (Reg-c) and Administrative (Admin-c) contacts are the most important. The Registrant contact will be used primarily to determine who currently has rights over the domain for matters such as domain transfers. If the Registrant cannot be contacted, the Administrative contact will then be contacted.

It is important that correct contact information is used as domains are validated from time to time using this information, and if the validation procedure fails then the domain can be suspended.

Some domains are able to be registered privately so that the contact details are not publicly available using 'ID Protection' . ID Protect for domains, if offered with that type of domain, do have an added cost. Not all domains are allowed to be privately registered.

ID Protect can reduce the ammount of spam sent to domain contacts.
