Thread: is this possible to do?
04-21-2003, 12:38 AM #1PaulGuest
Hi! I am about registering a .com domain, but I would prefer to hide my real home address in the WHOIS information (not my name and surname).
I don't want to fake it (which is probably illegal or at least very dangerous in case of controversy), but I would like to know if it's legally possible to hide it from the WHOIS, maybe with some particular registrar.
Do you know of any registrar which does this?

If you fake your information for a domain, the registrar has the rights to terminate your domain.
GoDaddy provides such a service.
Refer to this URL for more info - https://registrar.godaddy.com/dbp.asp?isc=&...prog_id=GoDaddy

Information in your whois is public information, unfortunately. These days domain registers have been putting up access codes that you have to enter before viewing the whois information, this is primarily to stop people from mass mailing/calling/emailing the whois database. Also some registers are hiding the whois information from other registers, but if you go to that register you can still view your information.
If you donít want your information there, than go get a PO box. Thatís the only legal way you can do it.

LOL, I see, its new service that lets you hide your information, by registering it under somebody elses name?!?! Do you really think thats good for your business?
Also, I can't belive they started something like this. I can't wait to start hearing about the law suits that will spring from this type of service. I have ran across so many people who have domain problems with others names being the owner. What happens when they go out of business?

Hmm basically, for business, I have no fears about putting my information over at the whois database. No point hiding my info.
Paul, in this case, might be hosting a personal site and doesn't want his info to be released to the general public

We usually recommend that you acquire a P.O. Box address (valid) to display in your whois record, if you are uneasy about displaying personal information.
The whois record was originally intended to act as a publicly viewable record, and I think ICANN and most Registrars would probably prefer this method to hiding/masking the information. I have heard about GoDaddy's privacy feature, but I am still uncertain about it.

ID protection is a service where your personal details are kept hidden in WHOIS. If you want to keep your details hidden, you can opt for ID protection. Its a addon service and you need to pay additional charges for the same.
