Domain owner change confirmation

An email from the domain registrar is not spam, it is legitimate and correct

You may have just received an email from

with the subject:

Aktion erforderlich: Bestätigen Sie die Kontaktdaten zu Ihrer Domain

If you are a customer of TBA-Berlin and the received e-mail looks like the example shown below and the domain mentioned there belongs to you, this e-mail is correct.

The registrar, through which the domain is administered, wishes a confirmation of the deposited e-mail address, after a successful change in the deposited owner data.

If an entry has just been changed in the stored domain owner data, such a confirmation mail (especially for COM domains) is correct and normal.

Such emails are usually not SPAM and not a hacker trick, but legitimate requests. Please simply forward such e-mails to us and we will process them.


Subject: Action required: Confirm contact details for your domain


nachdem Sie die Domain registriert, einen Providerwechsel vorgenommen oder die Kontaktdaten für den Inhabereintrag im Whois geändert haben, ist eine Bestätigung der Kontaktdaten erforderlich.

Bitte beachten Sie, dass die Domain ansonsten 15 Tage nach der Änderung gesperrt wird! E-Mailaccounts und Webseiten unter der Domain wären dann nicht mehr erreichbar.

Klicken Sie auf den nachfolgend genannten Link und verifizieren Ihre E-Mailadresse, um eine Sperrung zu vermeiden:

Dieses Verifizierungsverfahren ist eine Vorgabe der Internetverwaltung ICANN und kann nicht von uns beeinflusst werden. Sollten Sie die Bestätigung nicht durchführen, kann die Reaktivierung der gesperrten Domain bis zu 24 Stunden in Anspruch nehmen.

Bei Rückfragen stehen wir Ihnen selbstverständlich jederzeit gerne zur Verfügung.
