How to open WHOIS to be public?

Hello,

 

I want to open whois information for my domain name.
I don't have a privacy option, but my information in whois for domain is still connected with godaddy.

Can I remove this?

Re: How to open WHOIS to be public?

To view your complete whois you have to use the GoDaddy Whois lookup. There it should be "open" to the public unless you enabled privacy.

 

https://www.godaddy.com/whois

 

GoDaddy started limiting access to whois info this year. Other whois service providers most likely do not have access to the complete record. Registration email and phone spam could be one reason, GDPR another.

@develoness If you do not want your information shown you'll need to purchase privacy protection here: https://www.godaddy.com/help/add-private-registration-420

 

If you use Chrome you can use the link in my signature and it should only cost you a few dollars.
