Verisign® Restore Services and ConsoliDate
Respond to Lost Domain Names with Verisign® Restore Services
Most registrants forget about their domain name registration until they receive a renewal notice. Sometimes the notice gets lost or misplaced on a long to-do list. When the website disappears or e-mail starts to bounce, the registrar receives a panicked call. Verisign Restore Services allow your customers to re-activate a deleted domain name and have their domain name resolve within 30 days of deletion.
Support Your High-Value Customers with ConsoliDate
By offering a choice of renewal date, registrars help high-volume customers better manage large domain name portfolios and offer flexibility to all registrants. ConsoliDate gives registrants with .com and .net domain names the option to select a single renewal date for multiple domain names. ConsoliDate is easily integrated with your existing EPP Interface using the domain update function.E-mail a Verisign expert to learn more about our Restore and ConsoliDate services

Domain Name Zone Alerts
Subscribe to Alerts About the Domain Names You Manage to Facilitate Administration and Improve Customer Service.

- Standard Service: Available to .com and .net registrars for the limited internal purpose of facilitating the administration of .com and .net domain name registrations.
