Verify Data Through Documentation

If Nominet was not able to verify the domain's registrant data, but you wish to keep using these details, IONOS can manually verify them if provided with valid documentation matching those details. Simply email one current proof of ID and Address from Nominet's validation list Nominet UK to For example: Valid UK driving license, passport and/or current utility bill.
