What is the WDRP?

The WHOIS Data Reminder Policy (or WDRP) is an ICANN Policy designed to protect domain name registrants. The policy requires your registrar to formally remind you once a year to review and update your contact information. The reminder, which is also referred to as a WDRP Notice, is usually sent via email and asks you to review the WHOIS information, including contact information, associated with your domain name(s) and make corrections or updates when necessary.


I use a privacy and/or proxy service, do I still need to update my contact information?

Yes. Even if you are using a privacy and/or proxy service it's still important to make sure your contact information is up to date to be sure that you receive all notifications and requests from your registrar.

If you give wrong information on purpose, or don't update your information promptly if there is a change, your registrar can suspend or even cancel your domain name registration. This could also happen if you don't respond to inquiries by your registrar if they contact you about the accuracy of your contact information.
