How to check the current registrant email address for a domain

Last updated: January 11, 2019

It is of utmost importance to keep your domain contact information up to date, it is especially helpful for when you need to transfer your domain name and to ensure that you receive all domain expiry notices.

During a domain transfer, you will be required to confirm the transfer via an email sent to the current registrant email address.

Here is how you can check the current registrant email address on a domain name:

.AU domain names (com.au, net.au, org.au)

In order to check the current registrant email address for a .au domain name, the best way is to run a WHOIS search on the auDA official tool.

The Registrant Contact Email will be the current registrant email address, and if you have any enquiries regarding that domain in terms of disputes, or wanting to reach an agreement of sale, it would be best to email that address as opposed to contacting the registrar who cannot act as a middleman in domain sales.

gTLD, newTLD or other domain names (com, net, photography, xyz)

In order to check the current registrant email address for any other domain name, the best way is to run a search via a domain WHOIS checker.

The Registrant Email will be the current registrant email address, and if you have any enquiries regarding that domain in terms of disputes, or wanting to reach an agreement of sale, it would be best to email that address as opposed to contacting the registrar who cannot act as a middleman in domain sales.

What if the registrant email address looks strange, such as example@obscure.me?

This means that the domain you are checking has ID protection enabled.

This feature hides information such as the registrants name and email address from public visibility.

This email address will actually forward email to the current registrant email address, however, not all mail may be received.

To find out the real registrant email address, you will need to log into the registrars online domain management portal and check the relevant domains contact information.

If the domain is with Zuver, you may log into the relevant MyZuver account, disable ID protection, then once you have verified the registrant email address, you may then re-enable ID protection.
