Powerhosting.biz started to verify whois information for all new domains and whois information updates as mandated by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).


A change to the Registered Name Holder of a domain name is defined as any change to the first name, last name, or email address of the registrant contact. A change to the Registered Name Holder of a domain name will trigger the contact verification process whereby an email containing a verification link will be sent to the registrant email address. The link in the email must be clicked by the recipient of the email in order to complete the verification process.

If contact verification is required and not successfully completed, then the domain(s) that were registered or associated with the contact change will require suspension. Domain suspension involves eNom taking over the DNS of the domain and posting a page on the domain listing instructions on how the name can be verified and have the DNS returned to the previous settings.
