TitleHow do I update my domain Whois details?
Description
The registrant, admin, technical and billing contact details for any of your domain names registered with Melbourne IT DPS can be modified from within your admin panel.

Note: Updating the registrant contact for a gTLD domain (com/net/org/biz) name will change the legal owner of that domain name. Updating the registrant contact for a .au domain will not change the ownership of that domain, and will effect all other .au domains using the same NIC Handle. 

If you have any concerns about the privacy of your Whois contact information, we do offer a domain privacy service which masks your Whois contact information from being displayed to the public. 

Please note: This service is only available for certain types of domain extensions. 

To change the registrant contact details for a domain:
  1. Log in to the Admin Panel
  2. Hover over 'Domains' and click 'Manage Domains'
  3. Manage the domain you want to make changes to
  4. On the next page, click Domain Name

  6. Click [Modify] next to the contact information you want to edit
    • Registrant contact: the primary registrant and domain owner
    • Admin contact: the general administrative contact
    • Tech contact: the general technical contact
    • Billing contact: this one isn't generally used
  7. Make the required changes to the contact, then click [Update]

To change the registrant contact details for a .au domain:
