In this article, we’ll show you how to update your WHOIS information through the HostPapa dashboard.

  1. Log into your HostPapa Dashboard.
  2. Click My Domains.
  3. In the list of domains, click the one you want to update.
  4. Click the Lock tab.
  5. If the domain supports locking and unlocking, unlock your domain.
  6. In the expanded details section, click the Contacts tab.
  7. Select the appropriate contact (Registrant, Admin, Billing, Technical).
  8. Enter the updated information. Note: If all contact types need the same information, ensure the “Update contact information for all contact types” is checked.
  9. Click Update. The contact information is updated.  Note: If the “Update contact information for all contact types” is checked, all four contact areas will update to the new information.
  10. If you unlocked your domain name, be sure to click the Lock tab and lock your domain again.

IMPORTANT: Any changes to the REGISTRANT contact details may lead to a 60 days transfer lock of the domain. See this article to learn how to opt out of the 60-Days lock.
