I'm a bit scared guys...
Today I just got an email as such:
Subject: WDRP: mywebsite.com - Review whois information - Do not reply.
Dear Admin of mywebsite.com,
This message is a reminder to help you keep the contact data associated with your domain registration up-to-date. This is a requirement made by ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) through the WDRP (Whois Data Reminder Policy).
Do not reply to this message.
Our records include the following information:
*My website details*
(You currently have whois privacy enabled for the registrant contact)
*Then here it just says that I have privacy enabled so all my "contacts" show my hosting provider not me.*
If any of the information above is inaccurate, you must correct it by visiting our website at www.bluehost.com
. (If your review indicates that all of the information above is accurate, you do not need to take any action.) Please remember that under the terms of your registration agreement, the provision of false Whois information can be grounds for cancellation of your domain name registration.
If you have further questions, ICANN has provided a short FAQ about the WDRP which can be found at http://www.icann.org/whois/wdrp-registrant-faq.htm
Thank you for your attention. Do not reply to this message.
So basically I'm with Bluehost for this DOMAIN, and they sent me this email out of the blue even though I've had this domain for about 2 and a bit years. All the contact info on whois is set to Bluehost information not mine... They auto did this when I clicked the "Privacy" option. Now they are telling me to change it to mine??
I am worried... does this mean I am being investigated or somtehing? Has someone requested me to change all the inforomation from the top somewhere?
Thanks guys for any help
