The Token Validation System (the “Token System”) is how Registrars validate .BANK and .INSURANCE domain registration tokens issued by fTLD for verified domain applications. A key goal of the Token System is to ensure that Registrars use the validated token results when processing a domain name registration. The registration token encodes data identifying Registrant information and the associated domain name(s), and this ensures that domain registration information EXACTLY matches what was verified by fTLD. The Token Validation System Guide (available to approved Registrars on the fTLD Registrar Web Portal) covers the two mechanisms for token validation, API and Web-Based (“Manual”), and identifies other information available through the system.
