After submitting your data, the domain registration will be processed and you will only have to complete one final step.
Step 5. Verify your domain ownership
The final step in this procedure is to confirm your ownership of the domain name using the email address you used when registering. The email usually arrives within a few minutes after the domain setup completes.
In case the letter has not arrived, you can request a resend from your control panel. We recommend not to delay, but to do it immediately, as waiting 15 days or more will lead to the fact that your registration will be suspended.
