Hi

 

I am no longer able to view domain information on domaintools.com or whois

 

I used to be able to see who a domain has been registered to.

 

I think it has something to do with the Euro privacy stuff that is going on.

 

Thanks

Yes it's because of the European Union's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force on 25 May.

Hi,

 

Thanks. I thought it might have something to do with the EU privacy.

 

Is there any way the information can be obtained another way.

 

That information was handy, because it contained proof of who owned the domain.

 

If a domain registrant in NZ violated privacy rights what now can be done, when the domain registrar won't do anything about the issue.

 

I just noticed I can view the information in another part of www.dnc.org.nz

Word is that the current situation is only temporary until ICANN et al. finalise how they are going to handle access to the information. Its likely in the future some information will be accessible again, but there may be a few hoops to jump through first.

 

Of course I just renewed domain privacy on a couple of domains in April...

The NZ situation is a bit different to overseas. If it's a NZ domain you can check the details at DNC. Otherwise you'll have to try your luck at an overseas registry to see the information.

there are a handful of sites that sell archived whois domain info(ie that you can jump back in the record history as it changes) but you probably don't want to pay for it I'm guessing.

THe DNC restricted what was returned via whois because Reasons. You can only get dot NZ whois info via the DNC website. https://dnc.org.nz/whois/search?domain_name=
