WHOIS Privacy when registrar's DNS and Nameserver is changed?
edited March 18 in General
After reading this thread, I am very much interested to get a domain for personal usage (connect/access my vps via A record)
I am interested in buying it from namecheap as it gives free whois privacy.
(many of my friends use namecheap as their place to go for domains)
But once I get it, I am planning change it to cloudflare DNS ( I mean.... change nameservers to cloudflare nameservers and manage dns record in cloudflare) to attach my workers and tunnels as well.
Will whois privacy work even after its DNS management is moved to some other platform?
Hope I was able to explain my query properly
Yes - it has nothing to do with the nameservers.
The privacy is applied by the registrar.
Thanks for info. Appreciate it
So.... if I move domain to some other registrar, then only it might get affected?
Yes, in cases where where the next/winning registrar does not provide whois privacy.
Thx for clarification.
Time to dump free domains (As freenom is facing issues) and get a paid one
It's always good to go with paid instead of free no matter your paid provider provider whois privacy or not.
And make sure to have your current free domain for some more time and use proper reduction to your new domain
