Whois privacy is activated, but my real address is showing up on whois lookup


#1

Hi there! I have three domains registered with DreamHost. I just noticed today that all three domains still show my real address even though WHOIS privacy has been activated since the domains were transferred to DreamHost.

It is a little troubling, considering that I am a reporter and this just gives ammunition to possible harrassers. Is there something I’m missing?

It’s a known issue that appears still unresolved. Did you transfer the domain in? that’s usually where the problem comes from.

Others have reported that just turning privacy off and re-enabling will fix.

here is one thread: https://discussion.dreamhost.com/thread-139833.html
there are others as well if you search.

Hi Mgomez, can you also please update if re enabling Privacy did the trick for you here?
