Email or name changes

In addition, users also need to change those following items in their domain ownership:

  • Organization name
  • Email address
  • Last name
  • First name

This means that those above items have to get confirmed via emails before they become valid. In fact, modifying those details can lead to a 60-day transfer lock to be used for the domain if you do not opt for during this process.

Relying on when you registered your domain and domain types you want to register, this procedure will happen in two different ways:

  • Way no 1: WordPress team can conduct the verification on your behalf.

As you come to the Contact Details Page, you can see there is a note located at the button you authorize them to perform as your Designated Agent. At the same time, there is also an option to head to the transfer lock. In case you cannot see that option, move to Option No 2.
