Email address change of a Gandi handle

Begin by logging in to the handle in question.

Once you have done so, click on “Account Management” that you will see in the banner menu:

You will then be taken to a list of management options regarding the handle that you have logged in under, click on “Update account information” to be taken to a form where you can then update your information.

Scroll down to the email field and modify it (be sure to submit your changes).

Following a change in domain name security procedures on the part of ICANN, which has chosen to enact new complex rules governing email address changes that includes adding a transfer lock on domains for 60 days, Gandi has chosen to make use of the possibility of handling the validation side of the process.

Under this new procedure, you have the possibility of specifying that you want Gandi to be your “Designated Agent”, which allows you forego the 60-day transfer lock. For this, you need to check the box that you see under the email address field to accept Gandi as the “Designated Agent”.

Once this is done, you will be able to then modify the email address.
