Privacy on a Domain Purchase

 10:05 am on May 12, 2012 (gmt 0)

Hello all,

I had called GoDaddy to ask about their privacy on domain purchases and they said that there is no software, or any method to find the owner of a domain who purchased privacy.

Is that true?

A court order signed by a Judge would probably get them to cough up the details of the owner.
Of course whomever is asking for the details would have to have a very convincing argument as to why they need those details.

or any method to find the owner of a domain who purchased privacy.

Wouldn't, say Google as a registrar, be able to find out this info?

There will be a record somewhere therefore it just depends who has the authority level to get to it...I would have thought?

There must be a record, presumably they mean that it is not accessible by any public query across they web.
There are all sorts of ways that a cut out can be introduced, at its most (unlikely) extreme even on a database that is not connected to the web.
