Registrant verification


The .PT registry has notified all registrants of .PT domains to validate their contact data as part of their quality control. Failure to respond within 8 days of the registry’s first notification email may result in the registry deleting the domain. Validation can be done by the domain contacts by responding directly to the notification email. Please notify your customers immediately about this validation process.

The following contact data needs to be verified as part of the validation process:

  • VAT or Tax ID
  • The company or person that matches the VAT or tax ID
  • Contact information

The registry reserves the right to validate all contact information associated with a domain.

Please note: if your email address is listed as a contact, you are responsible for proofing the data and responding to the registry. If you have been contacted by OpenSRS regarding contact validation, you need to contact the registrant immediately.

We would like to point out that the .PT registry has already started this process without providing any advance notice to registrars or registrants. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and confirm that we provided appropriate feedback to the .PT registry.
