Whois Privacy

Hidden WHOIS Data

This option, activated by default, allows hiding your personal data in Gandi’s public WHOIS database (excluding your state and country, the anonymized email address (see below), and the name of the company, association, or public body if applicable) by the mention “redacted for privacy”.

By deactivating this option (by toggling the setting on the domain contact “edit” page for the contact in question), you expressly consent to the publication of your personal data in the public WHOIS database. You can withdraw your consent at any time by reactivating the hidden WHOIS data option.

This option does not apply to the following extensions where your personal data is protected at the registry level, and for which Gandi displays the WHOIS information as provided by the registry. In this case, should you want your personal data to be publicly available, please contact our customer support team via our form at https://help.gandi.net

List of extensions for which Gandi displays the WHOIS information as provided by the registry: .se, .nu, .uk, .eu, .be, .fr, .re, .pm, .tf, .wf, .yt, .at, .ie, .pt, .pl, .vg, .gd, .nz, .no,.lv, .ro, .ru, .af, .cx, .gs, .gy, .ht, .hn, .ki, .kn, .sb, .tl, .kn, .ms, .nf, .lt, .de, .at, .sk, .la, .pw, .fm, .radio.fm, .radio.am, .eu.com, .uk.com, .gb.net, .uk.net, .cn.com, .jpn.com, .sa.com, .us.com, .br.com, .ru.com, .za.com, .de.com, .se.net, .ae.org, .gr.com, .us.org, .com.de, .jp.net, .hu.net, .in.net, .co.com

Anonymized Email Address

This option, activated by default, allows replacing your email address in both the public WHOIS database and at the registry (when this is possible) by an anonymized email address in the form of “xxxxxxxxx@contact.gandi.net”. This anonymized email address will forward any mail sent to it to the email address that you provided.

By deactivating this option (by toggling the setting on the domain contact “edit” page for the contact in question), your real email address will be stored in the registry’s database. If you want your real email address to be published in the public WHOIS database, you must also deactivate the hidden WHOIS data option.

List of extensions which do not support the anonymized email address option: .uk, .dk, .ph, .pt, .ie, .homes, .fr (for individuals), .au, .ai, .ar, .bo, .br, .bs, .cl, .cr, .cu, .do, .ec, .gt, .jm, .kn, .ni, .pa, .py, .sv, .tt, .uy, .ve, .vi,.xxx, .be, .brussels, .vlaanderen
