Domain Whois – Your Questions…

Country code top-level domains

Michael asks…

How can I view private/protected WHOIS domain information for a site that I think is running a scam?

I think I have come across a site that is running a scam, and I want to obtain the website’s WHOIS domain information so I can contact who is responsible, but they’re using one of those paid private domain registries… How can I get a copy of that record? Doesn’t the law require that all website domains be registered to a liable entity, and that such information be public record?

admin answers:

Contact the proxy private registration service the domain is registered under.The whois will give you an email address (which usually forwards to the domain owner) and tel. Number of the service the registrant is using.I would make the complaint directly to the private registration service and if they see this as a scam they will probably drop their client like a hot potato.
