I would like to know a bit more about this please.
I have about 100 domains to sell and auction.
For this, I need to change the administrative email to mine. I have purchased all the domains from UK2 and their UK2 email shows as the admins.
Now because of that, I am getting refused in all the auctions as I cannot prove I own that email address.
After contacting their support, they have told me that this email address could not be replaced unless I was moving the domains with someone else(in this case Go Daddy).
Is this normal?
Do you have the same problem? Can't you change your Admin email in your WHOIS data????
I've looked at Whois entries for domain names registered through UK2 before, and from what I remember they all have UK2's email address in the admin contact field (with the remaining details - name, postal address - being that of the registrant). I think it's just how their system is set up (it's highly automated), and my guess is that to change this would require some major software redesign.
They should change it - what they're doing is not the way things are supposed to be done - but they probably won't be able to change it overnight.
So - if you want to auction these domain names now then you may have no choice but to move them to another registrar... which will then mean they can't be moved again straight away, so either way there will be delays.
