Hello Ish,

>I've attempted to clear some doubt:

Thank you for the great job.

I have some concerns however, with regards to whois information and privacy.

Not too long ago I was checking the whois information of some mauritian sites; companies such as banks and blogger's sites including yours. Not that I did it on purpose but these are the kind of things I do with my spare time.

As you know, whois information contains not only registration and expiry dates but also the domain owner's contact details such as address and phone number.

For the sake of privacy, can we afford leaving these kind of information public (Am excluding businesses here)?

I know that hiding these kind of information can hurt the way search engines see you or even sometimes requires extra cash.

According to you is it worth hiding?
