The law requires the validation of all the name and address information of all registrants in our database.
This means that your information is verified to be identical with the information listed in the Danish Civil Registration System or The Central Business Register.
The name and address information of registrants with a Danish address is validated by checking the above-mentioned registers at the time a domain name is created. This is how we ensure that all contact information for our registrants is accurate.
The validation of name and address information results in a better and more automated service for you as a registrant:
- Changes to name and address information in the Danish Civil Registration System or The Central Business Register are automatically updated in our system, reducing the volume of letters and unpaid bills sent to the wrong address.
- Automatic anonymisation in our publicly accessible whois database if you are anonymised in the Danish Civil Registration System.
Address outside of Denmark
If you have an address outside of Denmark, DK Hostmaster is not able to validate your information using a foreign register. This means that you must remember to update your name and address information in our system.
You will not be automatically anonymised in our publicly accessible whois database. To be anonymised, you must submit documentation that you have the right to name and address protection under the law of the country in which you reside.
I’m not validated – what should I do?
Since 1 March 2015, DK Hostmaster has worked to validate all registrants in our database. If you are one of the few who we have not yet been successfully validated, you can learn more by watching the videos below (Danish only).
