To my extreme dismay, I discovered that my domain name contact info is all published to whois even though DH shows they are private. Can I be the only one with this problem? You need to use a non-DH whois lookup service, e.g. http://network-tools.com/, to be sure. The DH panel lookup is lying (in my case).
Yes and if you’d like something to read for background info, there’s a recent thread about this kind of thing at
I think that many (or most) people no longer expect Dreamhost to get this right and they make their own arrangements.
Thanks for the reply and reference. I’ll try to remedy my problems as the other thread suggests. And I’m seriously now going to start migrating everything away from DH. This is beyond bad.
