Once you've registered a .eco domain, you'll need to set up a .eco profile before you can start using your new domain.

You should have received the activation email from activate@profiles.eco with the subject line Activate [yourdomain].eco.

This email should have been sent to the email address you used to register your .eco domain. It contains a unique link for you to configure your .eco profile.

If you can't find this email, you can have it resent using the 'Resend activation email' tool.

On this page, you can enter the .eco domain name you're trying to activate. The activation email will be sent to the email address associated with the domain name.

Frequently asked questions

When will I receive my .eco activation email?

Normally you should receive the activation email immediately after buying your .eco domain; however, in certain circumstances (especially if domain privacy services are enabled), it could take up to 2 hours for the email to arrive.

If you don't receive the email within 2 hours, please try using the 'Lost activation email' feature. If that doesn't work, please contact us by chat (click the button in the bottom right of this page) or email (support@go.eco) and we will help get the email to you.

Why am I not receiving my activation email?

If you've tried resending the activation email for your .eco domain and still haven't received it, here are a few tips:

  1. Check you spam folder. Despite our best efforts, the activation email can end up in your spam folder. Have a look there.

  2. Confirm that you have access to the email address associated with your registration. Domain privacy services are offered automatically or as an option at many of our registrars. These services anonymize the contact details you provided when you registered the domain name. When we resend the activation email, we use this anonymized privacy address (it's the only one we know!). These services should forward to your email address, but you'll want to check your account at your registrar.

If you're still having trouble, we can help! Chat with us using the button in the bottom right corner of this page or contact us anytime by email (support@go.eco) and we'll help you get set up.
