Changes to WHOIS Output
With the upcoming European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are making some changes to our public WHOIS output effective 25 May 2018 to comply with the GDPR and ICANN’s Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data.
Effective 25 May 2018, our public WHOIS will no longer display personal data of registrant, admin, tech contact. These changes will apply to all gTLDs (and some ccTLDs) sponsored by our registrar. Please see below an example of public WHOIS output after the change.
If you would like to contact the registrant, admin contact or tech contact of a domain name sponsored by our registrar, you will need to fill out the web-form request on our WHOIS output page. Your message will be forwarded to the contact specified in the web-form.
Please note these changes are mandated by ICANN’s temporary policy, which is subject to change and will eventually be replaced by a consensus policy developed by the ICANN community. As such, our registrar may be required to make further changes to our public WHOIS output in the future.
