Why do my contact details show on the WHOIS?

Almost all TLD registries operate some kind of public WHOIS database that will display information about the contacts for domains.

The amount of publicly-available contact information for a domain will vary depending on the extension of the domain and the policies of the registry operating that extension.

If you have concerns about your domains' contact data being public, see our FAQ entry about how to make contact information for your domains private.
