From the domain registrar information, you can includes information such as contact information, and the name of the registrant of who should be contacted if someone wishes to register your domain, the character string you are claiming (this must be an EXACT match), description of your current products/services, as you began using that domain name.

If you are using an automated system to handle the domain registration, you will have a small window on the browser to execute on filling out an authorized entry form and then send the request to your registrar. Always be sure to check your domain registrar settings if there is any time frame been program to allow a time limit on filling out the authorized entry form.
