Nominet changed policy on who.is privacy...help?


#1
Morning, I've just received an email from one of my hosts saying that nominet has changed it's policy on .co.uk extentions and domain privacy...
Does anyone know if there any other options I can take to stop my address being made public?
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

As far as I am aware as long as you selected "private individual" when registering the domain you can opt out ensuring no details are displayed, if you are a sole trader, ltd company etc I don't think you can.

Not aware of any changes, what details were you sent?

Ahh, thanks Boss Hog. I think I might be panicking for no reason. On the who.is entry is does say private individual now whereas on another site I have "domain privacy" all over it.

I was just sent an email saying "Domain privacy is no longer permitted for particular extensions - .int, .jobs, .co.uk"

but I think you're right and hopefully it won't affect my particular site.
