Verification of your contact's email address at Gandi

For domain names under ICANN's sponsorship that were registered after January 1st, 2014, Gandi is required to confirm the validity of the email address of the owner's contact handle. We therefore send out a validation email following :

  • the creation of a new contact (even if it does not have any domains yet)
  • the domain's creation (domains created after January 1st 2014 only)
  • the domain's transfer to Gandi (of the new owner handle)
  • an owner change (to a non-validated owner handle)
  • an email address change

WARNING: If you do not verify your email address for the owner handle, the newly registered domain name or names owned by the handle will be deactivated after 15 days.

In the event that your account is managed by a Gandi reseller, your reseller may have customized the sender's name, though the email address will still be

What to do if you did not validate and your domain was suspended

If, for some reason, you did not validate your contact's email address within the 15-day period that ICANN has defined, then all the domain names under that handle will be suspended.

In this case, please contact our customer support service without delay.
