Important ICANN Notice Regarding Your Domain Name(s)
Dear fatih simsek,
It’s that time of year again. ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) annually requires that all accredited registrars (like Go Daddy) ask their domain administrators/registrants to review domain name contact data, and make any changes necessary to ensure accuracy. According to our records you are the ADMINISTRATIVE CONTACT for one or more domains registered at GoDaddy.com, Inc. as of September 3rd, 2008.
To review/update your contact data, simply:
+ Go to www.godaddy.com/somelinkhere
+ Click on the “ICANN Domain Confirmation” icon at the top of the page
+ You will be taken to a landing page and asked to enter your Domain Information Key:
+ Enter your key and click “Go.”
Next, simply review the contact information for each domain name. To make a correction, log in to “My Account” with your customer number or log in name and password. Click “Domains,” select the domain to update, then click “Contact.” If you find that your domain contact data is accurate, there’s no need to take action.
If, however, your domain contact information is inaccurate, you must correct it. (Under ICANN rules and the terms of your registration agreement, providing false contact information can be grounds for domain name cancellation.) To review the ICANN policy, visit: http://www.icann.org/whois/wdrp-registrant-faq.htm
Should you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com or call our customer support line at (480) 505-8877.
Thanks for your attention and thank you for being a GoDaddy.com, Inc. customer.
GoDaddy.com, Inc. Domain Support
If you are the domain administrator of more than one GoDaddy.com domain account, you may receive this notice multiple times.
Copyright (c) 2008 GoDaddy.com, Inc. All rights reserved.
I just spoke to godaddy about this e-mail they say that the mailing of these letters is legitimate, however, they also said that each letter should come addressed to you and your complete name.
According to the rep, it IS POSSIBLE that somebody is phishing with a similar letter since it is the time of year to get such letters.
In the POTENTIAL SCAM letter, they won’t have your name at the very least.
His reccomendation is to simply ignore and delete the letters and simply log directly on to your account and browse through your domains for accurate whois information.
There is NO reason to enter in the ICANN KEY if ou don’t want to. Just be sure that your data is up to date.
Be careful out there!
