The locking and unlocking processes need to be performed by the administrative contact that has
- a valid SingPass ID (an ID issued by the Singapore Government to individuals); or
- a valid CorpPass ID (an ID issued by the Singapore Government to corporate entities); or
- a valid SGNICID (an ID issued by SGNIC to entities which are not able to have a SingPass ID or CorpPass ID).
Therefore, the registrant needs to first ensure that he/she has appointed such an administrative contact. Most .sg domain names registered after 2 May 2013 would meet this pre-requisite requirement due to the implementation of the [email protected]
To check if a domain name is under the [email protected]
scheme, please check the WHOIS results for the domain name (via SGNIC’s WHOIS search at https://www.sgnic.sg). A domain name under [email protected]
scheme would display the ‘[email protected]
’ status. (sample screen shot
If a domain name does not have ‘[email protected]
’ status, the registrant can still enable RegistryLock on the domain name if he/she appoints an administrative contact with a valid SingPass ID, CorpPass ID or SGNICID. Such appointment must be done via the registrant’s appointed domain name provider (e.g. Registrar or Reseller of the Registrar).
