    they say you're suppose to, but does anyone actually do it? can they take the domain from you if you dont?

    i registered a .ca domain last year and the motherfucking hoops they made me jump through were insane. 1st, i HAD to put ALL real info in there, address, phone number, etc...because they actually called me within 72 hours to confirm all the info was real

    2nd - how much of all of this info is available to regular joe doing a lookup on your domain? hopefully not much, and that the info is only required incase they need to prosecute you for doing illegal shit

    basically if you didnt signup for whois protection then your name, address, and telephone number are all listed as public information.

    check through a whois site so you can actually see whats listed, i usually use www.whois.sc/DOMAINHERE (not sure if they support .ca domains :dunno: )

    yes you have to. or anyone bitching that your info is fake can have them drop your domain and someone can register it.

    They logged you IP and know your geo location up to 10 meters your residence longitude and latitude.

    Your address, phone confirmation is a simple sanity check (not for info collection).
