need to change my e-mail account. What do I do?"
lost my email account and now I need to make changes to my domain name
often change their email accounts for various reasons.
you change an email address, especially the one that is
the listed email of the owner or administrator of a domain name, it is
VERY IMPORTANT that you notify
your registrar to update your domain name record BEFORE you
de-activate your present email account. Because verification
of who you are and your authority to request changes depends on a
confirmation of your request sent from the email address shown on the
whois record, if you deactivate your present account too early, you
will cause yourself much extra work and heartache, as well as
significant time delays, in modifying your records.
if it's already too late? Then we will need an alternate
verification of who you are. We will need a notarized letter
from you, preferably on your company letterhead if appropriate,
identifying you and your authority, along with your requested changes
clearly stated. One of those changes should definitely be an
update to your current email address!!
you are a domain owner and administrator and fall into this
category, we recommend that you make this update immediately before
you need to make urgent changes to your domain name record.
Don't always rely on your technical contact to update name servers
promptly when needed, especially when you are changing from the
technical contact's ISP to another ISP or hosting service. We
know from experience!
you are acting as a technical contact and have lost your email
account, things are a little easier for you. Ask the domain
owner to submit a modification updating your email address for the
