WhoIs Registrations


#1

Hi -
I was slightly concerned about the level of information that is visible when viewing my domain’s WhoIs entry. If I remove some of the more detailed information (address / phone number) from the panel menu (Domains —> Registration --> Modify), will this affect my Dreamhost account in any way?

Just to clarify:
I only want the info to be modified when viewing the WhoIs page, not change my details with Dreamhost.

Thanks!

No, this won’t effect your dreamhost account. However, the information is technically required, and should you come into some kind of a conflict over domain ownership the lack of infomaation could interfer with you getting it back. That being said you can either remove the info, or buy a p.o. box from the poastal service to use instead.
