Domain Name Glossary Terms
The process of informing individuals and organizations who are listed as authorized points of contact/agent on a domain name record, contact record, or host record that the registry has received a request to modify information in one of the records with which the authorized contacts are associated. All notifications are sent via email to the email addresses that are on file with InterNIC for the authorized points of contact. The notification process provides each authorized point of contact with the opportunity to acknowledge the requested modification with the response "ACK" or to refuse to acknowledge the requested modification, with the response "NAK." Notification is intended to keep all those involved with a domain name or host informed of actions that can affect the operation and functioning of the Host (Name Server).
