    Question Is it OK to use my Company's name in the First and Last Name Field?

    Hello,

    I wanted only my Company's name in the Registrant WHOIS Info of my company's domains.

    I asked Namecheap about it. They said I can put in the Name of the Company in the First Name and Last Name field.

    Is it OK to do that?

    e.g. whois.sc/microsoft.com

    Let me have your comments/suggestions please.

    Some registrars have a separately field for company name and registrant name.

    You should be save doing that. It's even recommendable to do it that way. If you put the company name and a persons name, then this person leaves the company it may be possible for them to claim the domain.

    Yes Namecheap has a field for Organisation Field but, it's optional.

    What I don't want is any personal name for Registrant Info.

    So, should I conclude that punching in Company Name into First Name and Last Name is not against any rules or have to CONs right?

    BTW, Thanks all for your suggestions/comments.

    After 4 people and the namecheap staff suggested it did no harm to put company name in those fields you can securely conclude that yes

    You could also put something like Domain Manager in those fields and put the company name in the organization field.

    That's a good idea.

    But, in case (if a situation arises) and I need to claim my domain from the Registrar will this cause any problems?

    Why would it? You are the Domain Manager for your company. Your company owns the domain. Your certificate of incorporation should be sufficient to prove your company exists.

    Speaking as a registrar, Stu2's right: you're the Domain Manager and you have proof that your company exists. No problem.

    Thanks Stu2 and Domainitor for clarifying that bit.

    Really appreciated.

    Now I am at peace to do the changes.
