Did you know

If you have a .com you can’t opt-out from whois searches like you can with .co.uk domains?

It was just brought to my attention, and once I’d stopped freaking out (my address was writ large on the interwebnet via a WHOIS search for chrissakes!) I just went and changed the details. I would like to apologise to Andrew who, after bringing this to my attention was accused of … well nevermind all that. Suffice to say I have already sent a grovelling apology.

Anyway, just a heads up for anyone who, like me, used a service to register a .com domain. They’ll just dump your contact details right in there for you and all the world to see.
