Domain registrations: GoDaddy now confirms your email

The beginning of a new year is notoriously known for introducing new laws, regulations and other such annoyances, by the State and Federal Government.

Not to be outdone, ICANN now requires that registrants get verified, and that registrars employ at least one such method of verification.

Having registered our first pair of domains for 2014 at GoDaddy, using the $1.99 codes FEAST and USAFBCOM08, we were sent the following email, right after we paid for the first domain:

Confirm your email - says GoDaddy, per ICANN rules.

Confirm your email – says GoDaddy, per ICANN rules.

Once we clicked on that link that says “Verify your email address“, the following screen was displayed at GoDaddy.com:

We are now confirmed and ready to do business!

We are now confirmed and ready to do business!

The second time that we registered a domain with the same email address, it wasn’t necessary to go through the process again.

So there you have it, an extra layer of information is now confirmed, ready for ICANN to reap or otherwise manage in any way they see fit.

We are certain, that our email address, now that it’s confirmed, will soon meet its numerous brothers in the depths of a large database, at the disposal of certain government agencies.

Happy New Year! πŸ˜€

    Will you stop? So what?

    You didn’t have to log in, because, being logged in from the registration, you were already logged in . . .

    This phishing email going round is worrisome . . .

    Louise – There is no need to log in to confirm the email address, and that’s not due to being logged in from registering the domain, it’s because the legitimate email is designed in such a way to not require further logging in.

    Regarding the obvious accumulation of validated email addresses, it’s worth gold in the hands of mass emailers. Let’s hope no such theft of data occurs.
