Verisign® Restore Services and ConsoliDate

Respond to Lost Domain Names With Verisign® Restore Services

Most registrants forget about their domain name registration until they receive a renewal notice. Sometimes the notice gets lost or misplaced on a long to-do list. When the website disappears or email starts to bounce, the registrar receives a panicked call. Verisign Restore Services works to allow your customers to re-activate a deleted domain name and have their domain name resolve within 30 days of deletion.

Support Your High-Value Customers With ConsoliDate

By offering a choice of renewal date, registrars help high-volume customers better manage large domain name portfolios and offer flexibility to all registrants. ConsoliDate gives registrants with .com and .net domain names the option to select a single renewal date for multiple domain names. ConsoliDate is easily integrated with your existing Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) Interface using the domain name update function.

Verisign Registry Lock Service

Provide Your Customers With a High-Level of Security for Their Domain Names

Available for .com, .net, .cc and .name domain names and hosts, Registry Lock can be used in conjunction with your proprietary security measures to provide a greater level of safety for registrants' domain names and/or hosts.

Verisign Registry Lock Service can help:

  • Combat Domain Name Hijacking: Protects domain names against unauthorized and unintended updates, deletions and transfers.
  • Supplement Existing Protection: Server-level statuses augment protection provided by client-level statuses already in use.

To ease implementation of the Registry Lock Service with the Name Store platform, Verisign provides comprehensive documentation and EPP SDKs.
