Why Is My Domain Still Pending Registration At WPX?

You can register a domain with WPX or transfer a domain name to us as long the domain is NOT a country code top-level domain (such as .co.uk, .uk, .it, .de, .com.au etc) as we no longer support those for boring, complicated reasons

When registering a new domain, be sure to provide a valid email address because you will receive a verification email. 

This email is sent each time a new email address is added or changed in your domain registrant details. 

NOTE: You should always check your Spam folder if the verification email has not appeared.

If you can’t find it, contact please contact WPX Support via live chat or ticket, in order for us to resend the verification email.

Once a domain is successfully registered, the domain status in your WPX Control Panel should be Active.

Inside your WPX Account (My Services (1) → Domains (2)) you can check the status of each domain that you have with WPX. 


The Domains section allows you to access details about your domains (registered, transferred etc.) such as the name of your domain, date of registration, expiration date, the current status of your domain – whether it is Active or Expired, or Pending – and you will be able also to manage your domains there – click on the orange ‘Manage domain’ button on the right for the domain that you want to deal with (see screenshot below). 

What to do if the domain status is 'Pending'?

When registering a domain, you will need to provide personal information such as:

– Your First and Last name
– Your Organization (If you have company )
– Your Email address
– Your Phone number
– Your Street
– Your City
– Your Country
– Your Postal code

Keep in mind that if some of the data above is provided incorrectly, the domain will be stuck on status ‘Pending Registration’

Usually this happens due to an incorrect phone number, postal code or email address

When you fill out your phone number, keep in mind that you need also to add your county code to be correct also, to make sure that you are using the postal code, we advise you to check it out first in Google.

IMPORTANT:  Please keep in mind that when a domain seems stuck on ‘Pending Registration’ for registration, you will receive an email with the issue that caused the registration to fail and you should contact us immediately in order to register the domain, otherwise someone else can register that domain.

If you get stuck with anything discussed on this page, please contact WPX Support via live chat (use the bottom right hand widget!) and we will usually respond and help within 30 seconds or less.
