    Domain with Domain Ownership Protection

    Does anyone know how to find the owner that has a domain with Ownership Protection?
    Some one told me that he found something like this because in the time between registration and enabling the protection ownership the details are available and records are being made.

    www.domaintools.com has whois history records, but I think you have to pay to access them. I don't know of any free service.

    To know this, either you need to pay to a company like domaintool or guess by your own observation by looking at the information, specially email address. Time can not tell about it because if some one will update whois with out protection, its time will also be shown there.

    When we go for a domain registration then this option available to protect owner name and due to this in who.is only contact address is found. It is difficult to know the actual owner of the domain.

    I enable protection simultaneously with registration (my registrar allows that) so no data will be revealed even in domaintools history.

    What I can suggest:

    - try to email to general email addresses like [email protected], [email protected] etc
    - try to email to whois protected address. this blablabla@ e-mail address you see in whois can actually forward incoming emails to the real address of the domain owner (depends on registrar)
    - try to contact registrar. they will not disclose info of the domain owner BUT they might be kind enough to forward your message to him/her
    less is more

    I used something like domaintools and managed to find what I was looking for ... but not directly. Seem that if you have an ownership protection ... you are quite protected.

    No guessing. It was the same email address on the hosting details. This was quite relevant to me.

    So protection didn't provide much protection. Which was my point.

    Taking the advantage of the opportunity, I can say that there are many Domain Registrars offering Free Privacy protect service.. try to do a search, compare them and then choose the best one.

    Privacy protection is the method to hide and fight against spammers. If you do business on your domain name I would not recommend you use that protection.

    Well I can say you are protected but it's like insurance ... it does not cover everything.

    It is not possible to know the name of owner of the domain if the domain is protected. However, some registrars have option to reveal contact details of the domain owner.

    Like you just send a mail to godaddy and even if the domain is protected they will let you know the domain owner?

    People spend money and hide ownership details. You can get history from domaintools but not the current information. That is the whole point for Owner/Privacy Protection on a domain.

    it depens on the registrar. some registrars will release the domain from whois privacy if a cease and desist comes in.
    Or you can contact the owner with the emailadress in the whois.Normaly the registrars forwarding this emails to the owner.

    That is true. I actually got a complain for one my domains that had privacy.
    The whois company forwarded the complain to me. Due to seeing it to late ( and answering it ) my whois protection was removed.
    Still they had good arguments to do that.

    As a general rule you shouldn't rely on someone else to keep your info private. It sucks but the only privacy is that which you supply yourself.
    I could tell you a joke about UDP. But I'm not sure you would get it!
