The importance of keeping a domain name record current
Keeping registrant contact details up-to-date and accurate is an incredibly important task, but one often overlooked.
Aside from keeping details current being an auDA policy for domain registration; those details are used by registrars to relay important communication to domain name registrants.
For example, as a courtesy, we advise our customers of looming registration expiry dates. If the domain name record contains an outdated or incorrect email address; the registrant will not receive these emails and may forget to renew. After a certain period of registration fees not being paid, the domain will become inactive and then expire; after which time someone else may register the name. For a business, this could be a costly and disastrous, yet easily avoided oversight.
Additionally, if you lose your domain name password, the email address associated with the registrant record is where a registrar will send the new password or password reminder to. If the email address is not correct, regaining access to the administration interface can take a little while as your identity will need to be verified in the interests of security. Even if it's just a few hours delay, that may be quite inconvenient and expensive for your company.
