How to see the owner details after enabling domain privacy


If I have enabled privacy to hide my address & identity but how can one still find out whether my address is genuine one as per ICANN guidelines?

Hi,

Some of the domain name registrars offer an option to see your contact information even when Privacy protection is enabled. If you do not have such option at your current domain control panel you can contact support and they will assist you.

You can also disable privacy protection in order to see your current details and then enable it once again.

If you use the privacy protection and the details under your domain name is invalid this is not the violation of ICANN rules since the protected data is displayed in public whois and this information is accurate and valid.

There is nothing to worry about.

Get a lawyer in the country of the registrar. Get a legal action to open up the files. In the US this can cost anywhere from $5k to $50k in legal fees (depending on how big of a registrar you are up against).

Hi,

All domain names registrar are required by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to send you reminder by the Anniversary date of each registered Domain Name that is subject to the terms and conditions of that organization. So if your contact data is accurate, no further action is required to comply with this notice, if not - please correct them.

I just want to let you know that if the privacy protection is enabled for your domain name you do not need to change anything since information is already valid.

There is almost no way to find the real contact information under domain name.

The exception would be if somebody provide the court order and in this case all domain name registrars will be obliged to provide the real contact information under your domain name.

In case Privacy protection was not enabled during the registration of the domain name your not protected contact information will be displayed in some Whois for 24-72 hours. Once all whois update their databases the protected information will be displayed.

do not fill your real identity for your domains ,
because there are no such kind of privacy anywhere in this world.

If we don't provide our correct address, this can be ground for cancellation of our registered domains. Isn't it?

Yup. If anything, one needs to put in verifiable contact information, or where they can be reached or contacted in case.

Not everyone can necessarily afford another mailing address or phone number, depending on their location. That's one thing a registrar's privacy service also tries to service.

Registrar makes money with the privacy service, the domain holder gets their information mostly if not completely hidden, seems win-win. Of course, read the fine print and ask questions to know what it does and won't do.

The registrar you used has access to the "real" details, and that name, address, etc are what they "escrow" to ICANN (currently via IronMountain).

The registrar can also be obliged to provide the real details to relevant authorities.

Using false information is grounds for deletion of the domain - so just dont do it !

You should fill up the actual information asking from you, and then enable the domain privacy system, no one can get your information after enabling that option. But If you will put some inappropriate information in your domain registration form, you domain can be suspended or cancelled in future for this act according to the rules of ICANN.

Have a PO Box and a cheap 888 or 866 (toll free) number to route calls... you can get a toll free number for around $3 a month.
