The public Whois domain name database has changed for the better for our domain name registration system.
Unlike most other domain name registration systems who still make your personal information available to the general public, our domain name registration system no longer shows your personal information as visible to the public – but- be advised that your personal information is still available on a limited basis. Please see details below.
The following information will remain visible in the Whois database. The registrar information, initial registration, last update and expiry dates, domain status, and nameservers.
The registrant information — name, organization, address, phone number, and email — is personal data that will no longer be published in the public Whois database. Instead, we now provide authenticated, gated Whois access in a specific and limited manner, so that those with legitimate reason (like law enforcement, domain name registries, etc) will be able to request personal data can access the information they require.
The question is – do you still want to use Whois Privacy? Without Whois Privacy, your domain names will use the gated Whois system, where registrant data is confidential in the public Whois database, but is made available to parties with a legitimate interest. So, while the audience for registrant data may no longer be the entire public, it will still be sizable. This is where Whois Privacy comes in — if Whois Privacy is active on a domain, the personal data in the registration record will remain protected from those with access to the gated Whois (except that law enforcement will always have access to domain name information). Whois Privacy also provides a way through the public database for third parties to contact the domain owner via the privacy service email address displayed in the Whois output (your personal email will not be displayed). The biggest reason to use Whois Privacy is that the personal data associated with a domain that is protected by Whois privacy will not be shared with domain name registries. (sharing with domain name registries is a major cause of spam).
If you currently have the Whois Privacy on your domain name – it is still active. As usual – when it comes time for the domain name renewal, you will be given the choice to renew the name with or without the Whois Privacy.
