Soz, very off-topic but I can't find much about this elsewhere.

How do whois directories pick up your information? Is it when you sign up for hosting? And is there a way to hide your name and location from such directories so the world and his dog don't know where you live and all Smile

But if whois directories pick you up from the details you enter when you host at a hosting company then do you have to lie on that form to prevent your address and name being indexed by whois directories?

I appreciate your help and time,

Rischen

Re: whois directories

Well, they have the information from when you buy a domain name - but not from the hosting.

You should have the option to hide personal details when you register a domain.
