What Personal Information Is Displayed in a Domain Name’s WHOIS Record, and How Do People Find It?

ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) rules state that all domain names publish public WHOIS data including the domain owner’s first name, last name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address. The information is accessible by anyone via a WHOIS database search. For example, google.com

GreenGeeks offers ID Protect, a WHOIS privacy service that shields your personal details using proxy information. Learn more about ID Protect and its cost.
