WDRP - Whois Data Reminder Policy

The Whois Data Reminder Policy is an ICANN requirement.

The policy states that all Registrars must, at least once a year, present each of their Registrants with that Registrant’s current Whois information.

The WDRP message is sent to each Registrant 120 days before their domain’s expiry date. If a domain is registered for more than one year, the WDRP message is sent, each year, 120 days before the anniversary date of the domain’s registration. The WDRP message includes a link to a page where Registrants can then update their Whois information, if required.

If a Registrant fails to or opts not to respond, their current Whois information is assumed to be correct.
