I own domains currently registered with GoDaddy. I never set up hosting. However, the Whois look-up does not show my name for these domains. Can you tell me why this would be? There is no privacy option included with those domains. This is VERY strange. I have contacted support via Chat and email and got no help. So I am beginning to transfer my domains to another registrar unless someone explain this issue.
Can you clarify -- is there no name at all -- or someone else's? Can you provide an example so we can see what you are seeing? What exactly did support tell you?
More info will help us to understand and possibly clarify what is going on. 😉
Okay ... I tried to reply with a cut/paste of what I am seeing but it gets marked as SPAM. So I'll try a screenshot. And to answer your other question ... after 30 minutes on Chat - support said they were looking into it. I offered to send a screenshot and was given the email at: pasigodla1086 at godaddy.com That was yesterday - still have not heard back. However, I will look into solutions from other replies.
Depending on when and where you registered your domains, they may be covered by the new GDPR privacy rules. In which case the whois is partially hidden for your privacy without having needed to purchase any privacy for the domains. You can check if your region is affected HERE
