Afilias to ditch almost all data in Whois on millions of domains

Afilias will stop showing contact info and ownership data on millions of domains including .info, .mobi and more.

Much of the focus of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as it relates to Whois has been on registrars. But many top level domains operate under a “thick Whois” system in which the registry maintains the personal data of registrants.

Today, registry Afilias informed registrars that it’s ditching almost all of the data in Whois. No contact data whatsoever; just a bit of technical data and the registrar’s data.
