Change domain contact information

You can change a domain's contact information at any time. Domains have four sets of contacts, which are listed below after the instructions.

If your domain name has privacy, see Update Contact Information for Domains with Privacy for more information.

When you update your Registrant info on a domain, this new process sends an email to the shopper email address, the existing email address being replaced, and the new email address for the Registrant contact. Either the shopper or the existing registrant email address AND the new registrant email address are required to approve the update. If these email addresses are the same, only one email and approval will be required See New ICANN Registrant update requirements for more details.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. Next to Domains, click Manage.
  3. Click the image that matches what you see in your account:
(Not what you see?)
  1. Select the domain name you want to use, click Text Icon (Settings) and select Domain Settings.
  2. Under Contact Information, click Edit.
    • To edit All Contacts, simply enter the Contact, Address, Phone, and Email information you want to update, and then click OK.
    • To edit each individual contact, deselect the Use for all contact types box and enter the information you want to update.
  3. Click OK.
  1. Click on the domain name you want to update.
  2. Click on Contacts and select Contact Information.
  3. Click on the tab for the contact type you want to change or select the Use for all contact types box.
  4. If you select the Use for all contact types box when updating contact information for more than one domain at a time, you will need to click on the Edit link in each field in order to enable the editing function.

  5. Enter the Contact, Address, Phone, and Email information you want to update, and then click OK.

The four different sets of contacts for domains are:

  • The Registrant is the contact information for the owner of the domain. Changing the domain name's registrant prevents you from transferring the domain to a new registrar for 60 days1. However, if you want to transfer ownership to another GoDaddy customer, you should use an account change.
  • The Administrator information is used for transferring between registrars.
  • Technical and Billing contacts are not commonly used.


1 You voluntarily agree to a 60-day lock that prevents you from transferring your domain name when you update the Organization field for the registrant contact, or when you update the First name, Last name, or Email address fields for the registrant contact if an organization is not the legal registrant for your domain name.

The 60-day lock does not apply to .au domain names. We send .au transfer-related information to the registrant contact's email address as it displays in the Whois database.
