We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, Pay Pal and wire transfer. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with specific concerns.
Navigate to My Account and use the email manager to add any email addresses associated with the domains you are attempting to upload. This will not work if your settings in the Whois are set to private. Once you have verified ownership of the email addresses by clicking the links that are automatically sent, simply re-import the domains and select WhoIS during the verification step.
This process requires the email address appearing on the WhoIS to match an email address that is tied to and verified on your account. You may still retain your primary Aftermarket.com address as the recipient of all email correspondence.
The reason you experienced a Whois validation failure might have been because the email address tied to your user account isn't the same as the one appearing on Whois records. Whois validation failure can also occur if your domain settings are set to private in the Whois. The CNAME validation process requires you to login to your registrar account, take control of your DNS and add a CNAME record using the unique identifier appearing next to your domain in the Pending tab of Aftermarket.com. Once you have added the CNAME and pointed to Host Name correctly (link provided below the pending table) your listing(s) will be pushed live by Aftermarket.com. Please note that each unique identifier code is only valid for 72 hours. If you exceed that period, the code becomes invalid and you will have to attempt your upload again. For issues adding a CNAME record, please contact your domain registrar.
You can find your EPP code within that particular domain's registrar and you MUST obtain it before finalizing any transfers. Below is a list of common domain registrars and instructions on how to access your EPP code. If your domain is registered somewhere else, please reference their FAQ on how to access your domain's EPP code.
Once you have your EPP code, please upload it in the "Upload EPP" tab and complete the transaction process from there.
