WHOIS no longer shows phone number

26 June 2023

From now on, we will no longer display a phone number in the WHOIS data, even if the domain name holder is an organisation or a company. This is to comply with GDPR regulations

A search in the public WHOIS (via web, command line or RDAP) will show the following data:  

  • Nothing if it is a private person - organisation field is left empty 
  • The address if it is a legal entity (organisation, company) - organisation field is filled in  

If someone wishes to contact the domain name holder about his/her domain name, you can submit a request by clicking the 'contact the domain name holder' button. We will forward the message to the registrant
