WHOIS Format Change - Effective May 25, 2018



Effective on May 25, 2018, the Internet Corporation for Applied Names and Numbers (ICANN) implemented a mandatory change to the public domain WHOIS format for gTLD Registration Data. This Temporary Specification establishes temporary requirements to allow ICANN and gTLD registry operators and accredited registrars to continue to comply with existing ICANN contractual requirements and community-developed policies in light of the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

See https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/gtld-registration-data-specs-en

As a result of this ICANN requirement, our WHOIS output has been changed accordingly, with most fields displaying "REDACTED FOR PRIVACY". As you may notice, the new WHOIS format is similar to many optional "whois privacy" services, in this case at no extra charge.

You may continue to make changes to your registration and contact data at the usual domain modification link:

Unfortunately at this time we cannot alter this WHOIS display to the "old style" without further direction from ICANN.

In addition to the the WHOIS format change, we have implemented a revised Privacy Policy. Click here to review dotEarth's updated Privacy Policy (https://secure.dotearth.com/www.dotearth.com/privacy.html). This Privacy Policy has been incorporated into our Terms of Use and Registration Agreement.

We hope that these changes will help further protect your privacy.
