Canadian Internet Registration Authority changes its policy on information about registrants lised in the directory 

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority is introducing a new privacy policy to safeguard the personal information of registrants. For more info, see the press release and the full policy it links to:


"For individuals who register a dot-ca domain name, only the domain name, the name of the Registrar, the registration date, the "last change" date, notice regarding changes in status of the domain name and server IP numbers/names will be available through WHOIS. Individual dot-ca domain owners will have the option of making additional information accessible to the general public.

The policy for organizations - private and public - with dot-ca designations will not change; the same data will continue to be available through WHOIS. Organizations will be able to request that some of their information be kept private.

CIRA will continue to ensure all registration data - including information not made public under the new policy - is available to law enforcement agencies. "

Thanks to Info Diva and Law Librarian Connie Crosby for the tip-off.

I can relate to that post. Finding the right domain name these days is more challenging and definitely more critical to getting good search engine positioning.

I really enjoy your blog, keep us posted.
