Ensure that your domain is not within a redemption or deletion period. It must be active, and cannot be due to expire within 60 days. It must have been created more than 60 days prior.

Ensure that the email addresses for the domain name holder and admin contact are valid, and visible on WHOIS (validation emails will be sent to these addresses).
