    Hello dnt'ers

    What are the bare minimum requirements when entering WHOIS information, and what is recommended to write in the WHOIS areas?

    If you can assist thank you.

    Thank you
    Blue Wren

    Do you mean in terms of protecting your identity? If so you can put down a name like "Domain Manager" or "The Director" for the contact names, however you still need to enter eligibility details so anyone can still use them to out who you are.
