Are my domain registration details private?

When a domain name is registered we have to submit certain details to the central registrar for that domain name type including:

* Registrant * Registrant status (Individual / Company / Legal Entity) * If you are a registered company or charity, your registration number * Registrant postal address * Contact name * Contact details The amount of these details that are publicly available on the Whois Database varies from registrar to registrar but in some cases all of the above could be published plus additional information such as: * Registration date * Registration expiry date * Last date domain name record was altered * DNS Servers

You may opt out in certain circumstances, please check when purchasing a domain name
