This is just fucking awesome.
Bought a domain name from a local registrar today and now my personal details like full name, phone number and exact address are nicely on whois.

The cunts didn't even thing to ask me during registration if I want to make it private and there's no option to do that on their piss poor website.

Oh well, tomorrow will be the day that I transfer my new domain away from them. Last time I ever do business with these shitcakes

    Unfortunately, once your data has been made public, it will probably stay cached somewhere and it will be hard to get rid of it.

    @subs there are ways around it. If you Whois my website, for example, it shows the details of a proxy somewhere

    I figured I have nothing to hide so hey, no point in opting for privacy WHOIS stuff.

    And now, I regret it.

    Every few days I get a call and the caller hangs up. I look online at the number and it seems to be someone offering web design.

    My dedicated "admin" address gets loads of spam from people offering SEO, web design etc. Usually based in a different country and with a gmail address.

    Too late to go back now and change it I fear.

    @nightowl I've been getting these same calls after setting up my org domain. Its an utter pisstake, and icann is really dropping the ball here. We need better protection.

    Then edit your profile at the register using random data

    @krisg At my registrar I can only change these details by mailing a signed letter...

    @krisg then your host gives you three weeks to provide real information before terminating your account.

    In Europe a lot of the current whois practices fall under the upcoming GDPR and should be illigal in may

    @sslPoodle Yea. I'm going to transfer there after some time. No way I'm giving these shitcakes any more money.

    Anyhow, they put the privacy thingy on now, after I sent a few emails to them.

    Domain registrars seem to have a directly proportional relationship between price and shittiness. The cheaper they are, the more they try to jam bullshit services down your throat.
