What are 'contacts'?



an style="font-size: small;">Associated with each domain, there is a so-called 'Whois record'. The information within this Whois record is published publicly, and has to be provided by you, the domain registrant. an>

an style="font-size: small;">This Whois record - the part which is provided by you - consists of the following contact information: an>

  • an style="font-size: small;">owner contact: the official owner of the domain an>
  • an style="font-size: small;"> admin contact: role in charge of administrative tasks an>
  • an style="font-size: small;"> tech contact: role for technical tasks, like nameserver an>
  • an style="font-size: small;"> billing contact: role for questions regarding payments an>

an style="font-size: small;"> an>

an style="font-size: small;">A contact is a kind of 'template', consisting of an email, name and street address. If you populate a domain with Whois data, you create such a contact (or choose an existing one), and assign this contact to a domain.an>

an style="font-size: small;"> an>

an style="font-size: small;">You are free to assign individual contacts to each domain, or use a single contact for more than one domain. In this case, it is important to know that in case you change such a contact afterwards, those changes will apply to all domains which have been assigned this contact.an>

an style="font-size: small;">Please note: These contacts are for published Whois records only. They do not define the usage of your domain, or the persons able to access a domain. To actually grant access rights to other persons than the purchaser of a domain, explicit '<a href="content/5/446/en/how-to-grant-roles-%3D-grant-permissions-to-others.html">rolesa> ' may be granted using the Joker.com domain management in the service zone.an>

an style="font-size: small;">Important: You are obliged to enter only valid and true address and identity information for Whois data. This is a requirement of all domain registries.an>

an style="font-size: small;"> an>

an style="font-size: small;">As of May, 25th 2018, the european GDPR has been put into effect. As a result, for most domain types (TLDs), by default no Whois contacts are published any more. an>

an style="font-size: small;">Possible exceptions in regard to some TLDs are documented in the terms and conditions of these TLDs.
