From 19th April 2020 onwards, domain names registered before 2 May 2013 will be subject to the VerifiedID@SG scheme once the identity or contact information of the registrant is changed. A check on SGNIC WHOIS for the domain name will show that the verification of the domain name is pending (“VerifiedID@SG-Pending”, and no longer “VerifiedID@SG-Not Required”) and the domain name cannot be renewed (“Server Renew Prohibited”) until the administrative contact completes the verification process.

With this revision, all .sg domain names will be subject to the same verification requirement.  This will further enhance the trust amongst users of .sg websites.
