How to cancel domain privacy for a certain domain name

The problem

Did you know that when you register a domain, your name, address, email address and phone number are immediately made available to anyone who wants to see them? That's right. Your personal information is exposed 24 hours a day, everyday, to anyone, anywhere.

The solution

With a private ("unlisted") registration through Domains By Proxy (our affiliate company), You do not need to publish your address, phone number, or any other information, the address and contact information listed are those of domains by proxy, and all mail and email is automatically forwarded to you.

What is private registration ?

You retain full benefits of domain registration. You can cancel, sell, renew, or transfer your domain; set-up name servers for your domain; and resolve disputes involving your domain, Email sent to the DomainsByProxy address are forwarded to your own email address (according to your settings), You may chose to have a spam filter active on the forwarder so you only get legitimate email delivered to you.

Can i use fake information for a domain name's Whois data ?

That is a very bad idea, and could lead to loss of ownership over your domain name, people reporting you to the relevant authorities can be anyone from your competitors, to as dissatisfied customer who happened to try and look your data up, to anyone else who may have found this incorrect data, Incorrect Whois information can be basis for canceling your domain name for most TLDs

Why can't i use privacy with .CO.UK domain names ?

For non trading individuals, you can opt out of the .CO.UK whois service (Trading including trading in services and online services and IT, and hosting advertisements for pay on your website), in that case, opting out is for free, but for trading individuals, the .CO.UK registry requires that the person/company who the website represents has that same person/company's information (And therefore, private registration is not allowed as it will list someone else's information on the whois record), Please note that displaying advertisements in return for compensation is considered trading.

Since i can not apply privacy to .CO.UK domains, can the registrant's name be a company name ?

Yes it can, You can use your UK Sole Trader, LLC, LLP, or any registered Legal business structure name to display in place of your name on the Whois page for a .CO.UK domain name, You can then add the address of that business in the domain name's whois.

Can someone find my name and address by investigating my company or partnership ? (In the UK)

Yes, for most kinds of legal business structures anyone can obtain information about every partner, and and even though Sole Trader companies are under no obligation to file any documentation at Companies House, there are websites on the internet that offer such information for free and for a fee (subject to availability), such information is collected from various other sources, and , searching for such information on the internet returned a fully functional website at http://www.companyalert.co.uk that displays such information.
