Can I Have My Contact Information Removed From the WHOIS Database?
The contact information of an individual who has registered a domain name is required to be legitimate contact information. This information is also required to be available to the public through the WHOIS database. According to ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), the governing body for the registration of domain names, a domain name registered by an entity providing invalid contact information is grounds for revocation of the registration of the domain name. Real contact information is required by ICANN in order to generate accountability for what is placed on a domain by any entity registering a domain name.
