How to check the current registrant email address for a domain

It is of utmost importance to keep your domain contact information up to date, it is especially helpful for when you need to transfer your domain name. During a domain transfer you will be required to confirm the transfer via an email sent to the current registrant email address.

Here is how you can check the current registrant email address on a domain name:

.AU domain names (com.au, net.au, org.au)

In order to check the current registrant email address for a .au domain name, the best way is to run a Whois search

The Registrant Contact Email will be the current registrant email address. The result should look like the image below.

gTLD, newTLD or other domain names (com, net, org photography, xyz & etc)

In order to check the current registrant email address for any other domain name, the best way is to run a search via our domain Whois checker to run a Whois search

The Registrant Email will be the current registrant email address. The result should look like the image below.

What if the registrant email address looks strange, such as example@obscure.me?

This means that the domain you are checking has ID protection enabled. This feature hides information such as the registrants name and email address from public visibility. This strange email address will actually forward email to the current registrant email address.

To find out the real registrant email address, you will need to log into the registrars online domain management portal and check the relevant domains contact information.

If the domain is with HostLessor Australia, you may log into the relevant Client account disable ID protection, then once you have verified the registrant email address, you may then re-enable ID protection.
