I have a domain that is privately registered, so if you run a whois, you will just the domain registrars name. And below are two questions:

  1. Since i am using private registration, is there a way somebody can find out i own it?

  2. Will the nameserver information still show even if its privately registered?

Some domains allow you to hide your details, such as .co.uk address, .com address hiding your credentials isnt. However, in a number of webhosting places, they actually own the domain on your behalf, as a result your details are then hidden because only the webhoster knows.


I'm not sure about others but for GoDaddy private registration I think I read somewhere that you can find out the details of private registrant. (I don't have the link though)
