ICANN Domain Statuses and What they mean

You may have noticed information about ICANN status for domains that are listed in the My Services and My Domains sections of your HostPapa Dashboard.

What the statuses in the HostPapa dashboard mean

There are 4 statuses that appear in the dashboard, as follows:

Verified
No action is needed

Action needed
This symbol means that ICANN has identified that one of the 5 actions listed above has occurred and the verification email was sent. You must locate the email and click the verification link within it, or click on the “Resend verification” button to have the email resent.

Disabled
This symbol means that the verification process (clicking on the email link) has not occurred and the domain name has been disabled. To fix this, click on the “Resend verification” button to have the email resent. Once the verification link in the email is clicked, your domain will be enabled again and the status will change to the green checkmark “verified” symbol.

N/A – Not applicable
This means that the domain name is not a gTLD and is therefore not governed by ICANN.
