At W3schools it is a priority to keep your information private. When you buy a domain, you provide information during the registration process to the domain host. WHOIS privacy is included for all eligible domains free of charge when you buy a domain at W3schools.
What is WHOIS?
WHOIS is a way to list information about domains.
ICANN, the organization that oversees domain names, uses WHOIS to keep domains organized and legitimate. A WHOIS record includes:
- Registration date
- DNS records
- Domain expiration date
- Registrar organization
- Domain owner contact information
You can look up this info in public databases like who.is.
