How do I check and choose which contact record should be viewable in the public Whois directory?


To check which contact records your domain is using for the Whois directory, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down.
  3. Under the "Domain" column, click on your domain name (which should be a link).
  4. Choose the "Contacts" tab to the right of "Settings".
  5. You will be prompted to unlock your account.
  6. Once your account is unlocked, you can choose which contact record to display on the Whois directory and check which contact is currently in use.
  7. Press the "Save" button to save any changes.

If you need to set more than one domain's Whois information, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Make sure to unlock your account.
  3. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Manage Domains" in the drop-down.
  4. Check the box next to your domain name(s) and click on the "Bulk Action" button.
  5. Choose "Contacts" from the "Bulk Action" list.
  6. Use the drop-down menus to choose the correct contact record you want to use.
  7. Press the "Save Settings" button to save your changes.

Once you update your contact records for your domains, it might take a few days for the public Whois directory to update.
