For privacy reasons, I'd like to hide my personal information including my name in the WHOIS registry, while registering with OVH.
An individual: All of the contact's details can be hidden (apart from their full name).
However, I already saw multiple OVH-registered anonymous domain names.
For example, here's an extract of "synonymo.fr"'s WHOIS, following OVH's website:
registrar: OVH type: Isp Option 1 address: 2 Rue Kellermann address: ROUBAIX country: FR phone: +33 8 99 70 17 61 fax-no: +33 3 20 20 09 58 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org website: http://www.ovh.com anonymous: NO registered: 21/10/1999 source: FRNIC nic-hdl: ANO00-FRNIC type: PERSON contact: Ano Nymous remarks: -------------- WARNING -------------- remarks: While the registrar knows him/her, remarks: this person chose to restrict access remarks: to his/her personal data. So PLEASE, remarks: don't send emails to Ano Nymous. This remarks: address is bogus and there is no hope remarks: of a reply. remarks: -------------- WARNING -------------- registrar: OVH changed: 11/01/2009 anonymous@anonymous anonymous: YES obsoleted: NO source: FRNIC
As you can see, it's stated as anonymous despite being registered with OVH. How is it possible?
Thanks in advance (and sorry if my English is awful).
PS: Here I'm only talking about ".fr" domain names. I suppose it may be important to mention it; I don't know if the same rules are applied across all the domains.
