CoCCA, the registry provider for the above ccTLDs, will from 7 November 2011 start requiring registrant and administrative contacts to activate their domain name registrations or renewals.
On the registration, renewal or change of registrant the administrative contact and the registrant will receive two emails.
One is a "welcome" message, the second one is an "activation" email with a link that the recipients must click on, within 21 days, to
1. accept the TLD Registrant Agreement and AUP policy; and
2. confirm the validity of their contact details.
A new domain will not be activated after registration unless the domain has been confirmed by clicking on the above-mentioned link. If the domain has not been activated within 21 days after the registration, the domain will be suspended and then deleted.
On renewal or change of a registrant the policy must again be accepted and the contact details confirmed within 21 days or the domain will be suspended. In this case the domain will be forwarded to a parking page until it has been confirmed.
