Cira has announced that it will end Free-For-All over personal information in the public whois search. About time! This is one of the biggest concerns of our customers. Most of them opted to go with a .com instead because you can purchase a privacy protection service for .com .net and .org domain names. This is good news for all Canadians wanted to have a .ca domain name.

“The new dot-ca WHOIS Policy puts Registrants first by restricting access to the private information of individuals while providing timely mechanisms for legitimate information requests,” says Byron Holland, President and CEO, Canadian Internet Registration Authority.
