How to Update Whois Domain Contact info

You can update your whois through the domain manager. You can do multiple domains at a time.

1.Log into your cPanel
2.Go to the Domain Manger under the Domains section.
3.On the left, click to highlight the domain. The right side will populate with tabs.
4.Click on the contacts tab.
5.Under contacts, you have three sections; Registrant, Admin, Billing. Depending on what you want to update, you put a check mark in each on. The email address under Admin is where the transfer emails are sent to.
6.At the bottom, click Update Contact Information.
This updates the whois that is publicly available usually within minutes.

If you have a .us domain, you are required to enter the Nexus information as per .us domain registration requirements.
