The WHOIS database is a searchable list of every single domain currently registered in the world. To find out who owns a particular domain name, all you have to do is type it into the box above. The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires accredited registrars like Epik.com to publish the registrant's contact information, domain creation and expiration dates and other information in the WHOIS listing as soon as a domain is registered.
The short answer is, yes. The name, address and phone number you submit when you register your domain is publicly accessible by anyone at any time. This may be good news if you have a domain name you'd like to sell. Or it may be bad news if your name and contact info is collected by a spammer, hacker or other cyber-criminal.
To keep your personal data from falling into the wrong hands, Epik.com offers Private Registration through Anonymize.com Instead of displaying your personal information in the WHOIS database for all to see, Anonymize.com will replace it with their own. The domain will still belong to you - except now, you and Anonymize.com will be the only ones who know it.
