How does the European Data Protection Law GDPR affect WHOIS?
The GDPR (European Data General Protection Regulation) dictates how organizations handle personal data of European Union citizens. Due to this regulation, the WHOIS system, which traditionally provided domain registration details publicly, has had to adapt.
Personal information like the name and address of the domain holder is often hidden, leaving only the technical data visible. It's important to note that the information displayed in WHOIS can vary based on the requirements set by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) and may also differ depending on the territories.
