    About 2 days ago I checked a whois at DomainTools. The only information displayed was the registrants name and the domain residing server. Same thing happened yesterday. Curious, I checked the whois for some of my names. All my information was displayed including contact info.

    As of today though, all my names display just a reg name and dns. Other Whois providers display the same standard. While Net Sol does the same, it doesn't block contact information from all whois providers. I suppose there could be any number of reasons why Godaddy is doing this. I guess its a strategy to draw traffic to Godaddy while protecting domain owner information in kind.

    Godaddy seems to be taking a page from Google and Facebook. Is this good for the average domainer?
