Whois Privacy Protect is at Danger — 4 Comments

  1. Privacy protection is for individuals.

    Businesses that hide their business information by abusing these services is the most likely impetus for this change.

    Businesses should be prohibited from using whois privacy services and should be required to list their official business name and address, just as they are required to do when filing a DBA. (A domain name is not unlike a DBA, in fact)

    • Hello Private, even while you are reacting anonymous, I like to reply to you. I agree with you, a company should not hide its data for customers, but the pointer takes now a turn to far. To reveal all data from everyone. There are millions of affiliate website and hobby websites in the air, from people who try to make a living from it or just want to share their interests. They are working on their websites at home, after work in the evening. They are well-regarded small businesses. Some are making profit, some are just doing it for fun. And I think it is really an infringement of privacy when ICANN is going to display private home adresses and home phonenumbers. As you say, let them work the other way around, and forbid companies to use Whois.
      Thanks for visiting my website, I hope you can use some of my hardwork:) Loes
