But none of these are the offical whois of the actual domains. For that information you need to go directly to the registrar who is handling the domain registration. Their whois is considered the offical one. What it says at the registry is not offical.
what is your take on using a service that "cloaks" your personal information in the WHOIS database?
Its a service searching the database of the registered domains in a registrars database. So , for example, If I wanted to sue a company which has copied my site's content, I could just check the whois of that domain and contact the maintainer. Pretty useful.
Donno how this service "cloaks" your personal information though. Its not like its giving away your credit number.
I don't use any others - it takes 5 minutes just to check whois, enter verification code, etc.
And also, what do you mean by "fake" info? All the WHOIS I've seen so far are correct. In what way are some of them "fake"? Care to give an example?
