Whois is dead as Europe hands DNS overlord ICANN its arse


Re: Meanwhile in Europe itself...

I checked nominet in the UK :-

From 25 May 2018, the .UK WHOIS will no longer display the registrant’s name or address, unless they have given permission to do so – all other data shown in the current .UK WHOIS will remain the same.

Any third party seeking disclosure for legitimate interests can continue to request this information via our Data Release policy, free of charge.

The standard Searchable WHOIS will continue to be available, but will no longer include name and contact details to ensure GDPR compliance. Those outside law enforcement requiring further data to enforce their rights will be able to request this through our existing Data Release policy.

Seems all reasonable to me. I'm going to be re-registering all my sites/services on May 26th.
