I recently bought a ‘.com’ domain name from 1and1, in the UK. The whois information lists my home address and phone number, which I would like to remove / hide.
1and1 seem to get a bit of a kicking at times for customer support and such like, but I have found them very good until my current problem. For some reason, 1and1 do not offer ‘private registration’ services for their UK based .com customers. I really don’t know why, as other UK based hosts seem to offer the service … some even for free.
Is there a way to hide my home address and phone number from the whois database, but continue to use 1and1 as my host ? Or is it a case of I will have to transfer the hosting of my website to whoever provides the privacy protection service ?
