From 1st March 2022, dnsBelgium will implement in production a new registrant verification process.
This process is really simple, and it will ensure the ownership of the domains:
Domain is registered by a private individual (by default, in pendingCreate);
The registrant will receive an email from dnsBelgium with a link to validate the owner data;
Once the data is validated, the domain will be active.
- For company registrations, a company contact can go through verification.
- To validate the registrant information for Belgian private individuals, the registry is using the service “itsme” or “eID card reader”.
- To validate the registrant information for Dutch private individuals, the registry is using the service “itsme” or “iDIN”.
For registrants outside The Netherlands or Belgium, the registrants will have to validate their identity using Onfido.
The registry created a video to explain the full process: https://www.tryout.dnsbelgium.be/en/verification
