If you have an account with Enom you can update your WhoIs information from within your account by following these instructions. If your reseller has given you access, you can also modify your contact information through the access.enom.com portal.
If the domain is with a reseller and you still can not modify your domain contact information, please contact your reseller.
2. My domain was registered through Google, where do I go for help?
You can manage and make changes to your domain at access.enom.com. For more information please see the articles listed below:

3. My contact information is on the domain, but I am no longer affiliated. Please change the contact info.
We are not allowed to make changes to the contact information for you. If you are no longer affiliated with the domain, you will need to sign into the account and update the contact email to the right person. The change will need to be approved by both the current email and the new email. Please check your mailbox for the approval link.
4: I forgot to respond to this email, what do I do now?
You are not required to respond to this email, however you should review the WhoIs information for your domain and update it if necessary.
5: I no longer want this domain, how do I cancel it?
If you no longer wish to maintain the domain you can remove it from automatic renewal, either from within your account or by contacting your reseller. Removing the domain from automatic renewal will allow the domain to expire at the end of it's current registration period.

Per ICANN Policy we are required to send out this notification annually, as such we are unable to stop these notifications. Please do not put fake email addresses as the registrant contact as whoever controls the email controls the domain.

The link starts with https://wdrp.name-services.com/ and also http://www.icann.org. Please do not click on the link if it doesn't linked to either of these sites.
Please see the example email below:
