Whilst browsing this question, some of the answers mentioned that certain registrars will replace your whois information with their own. Can anybody provide details on which registrars offer this service?

  • I think you're getting mixing up registrar (Verisign, etc) with DNS Hosting (GoDaddy, etc). – Evan Plaice Jul 12 '10 at 16:02

Generally, anyone who offers Private Registration will 'hide' your information. That is still really just a thin veil of security, for US based registrars at least, as a subpoena will make them open up fairly quickly.

    Fortunately, junk-mail marketers don't have subpoena powers (yet). The main reason I would use private registration is to reduce the registration renewal snail-mail and spam that I get. It can also be useful to delay revealing new products or companies, etc., while something is in development. – Paused until further notice. Jul 12 '10 at 18:27
