The plan to end private domain registrations

Whoisguard.com data protection system example

Surely more than once, when you have looked for the person responsible for a domain, you have come across the information of private data. It is possible, when registering a website, to hide personal details in the WhoIS Directory, and that is something that many criminals use to avoid being easily located.

The problem is that it is not only a resource used by criminals, it is also something used by millions of people around the world who do not want to report their name, address and telephone number on the Internet, a right that, apparently, will be eliminated soon to commercial websites (may include all those that display ads).

In TorrentFreak they comment on how the situation is: ICANN's proposal (PDF) is to eliminate that possibility of anonymity when registering domains (something that many think can end pirated content sites), and thousands of people are commenting on the proposal rejecting the idea.

The problem is that criminals could continue to do their own thing by publishing missing information in their Whois, so it will only affect those who want to remain anonymous and prefer not to lie about their data when registering the domain.

These public comments will close on Tuesday, and then voting will begin on ICANN to approve or disapprove the proposal. Hopefully the public opinion will serve for something this time …
