New regulations (2014) from ICANN for gTLDs

Since January 1, 2014, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers , ICANN, has put into effect new regulations for gTLDs (generic Top Level Domains), which require the client to take some actions in specific cases, so that their domain can be kept active. 
The following information does not apply to .GR & .EU suffixes. 
Regulation description 
Based on the changes by ICANN, an automated email is sent to the domain owner's email address in the following cases: 
1.After the initial registration of the domain name. 
2. After modification of any of the following owner details: First Name, Last Name, E-mail. 
3. After completing register change. 
This email includes an approval link, which the owner is obliged to click within 15 days from the date of receipt, in order to keep his domain active. 
If within the 15 days the user does not approve, the operation of the domain is suspended. This means that the DNS service stops and the domain stops being resolved. In the event that the domain is eventually suspended, the nameservers entered remain registered, so functionality is restored as soon as the owner clicks on the approval link.
