Does godaddy still verify new domain purchases through a phone call?

I know with my last domain godaddy called pretty soon after the purchase telling me to call them back to verify the domain purchase or my domain would be shut down within 24 hours. Do they still require domain purchase verification? I haven't got a call with this new domain and want to make sure my domain is not going to be shut down in 24 hours if i don't verify the purchase.

Hi @webdeveloper73. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! GoDaddy does occasionally require some purchases to be verified, but this is usually done via email or an alert on the account. I've not heard of us doing it via telephone. There is a separate process for verifying domain name contact information though, which might be what you're referring to. If you're not sure whether or not there is an issue with your account, the best thing to do is connect with our customer care team.
