Whois and GDPR

Whois and GDPR

As a registrant, your name and address information is public in the Whois database, available on our website. This is a requirement under the Domain Names Act, whether the registrant is an organization or an individual.

As a result of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), many other domain administrators choose to shut down openness about registrant information in their whois database. This is because most other countries have no law that obliges domain administrators to show who is responsible for the registration of a domain name.

DK Hostmaster will continue to publish the name, address and telephone number of registrants, as this is a requirement in the Domain Names Act. This means that DK Hostmaster has a legal basis for the publication.

Anonymity

You can only be anonymous in our database if you are registered in the Danish Civil Registration System as having name and address protection.
You are automatically hidden in our database when you are registered in the Danish Civil Registration System as having name and address protection.
