[ aws . route53domains ]



For operations that require confirmation that the email address for the registrant contact is valid, such as registering a new domain, this operation returns information about whether the registrant contact has responded.

If you want us to resend the email, use the ResendContactReachabilityEmail operation.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


[--domain-name <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--domain-name (string)

The name of the domain for which you want to know whether the registrant contact has confirmed that the email address is valid.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


To determine whether the registrant contact has responded to a confirmation email

The following get-contact-reachability-status command returns information about whether the registrant contact for the specified domain has responded to a confirmation email.

This command runs only in the us-east-1 Region. If your default region is set to us-east-1, you can omit the region parameter.

aws route53domains get-contact-reachability-status \
    --region us-east-1 \


    "domainName": "",
    "status": "DONE"

For more information, see Resending Authorization and Confirmation Emails in the Amazon Route 53 Developer Guide.
