Can people see the personal information I provide when registering a domain name?

When you register a domain name your contact details are recorded in the so called WHOIS database – that maintains the contact info for all active domains. The WHOIS information for domains is publicly available as per ICANN regulations.

If you do not want to expose your contact details publicly, you can legally hide it by ordering Domain Privacy Protection for your domain. To do this you can use the How to hide my personal contact details when registering a domain name? guide.
