It seems if you are to register a .uk domain you can only opt out of showing your private details if you are not a business, and not going to use the site for business or trade.
Only domain name holders that are non-trading individuals can opt out of having their address details published on the WHOIS.


That sounds straightforward, however, it seems some have fallen foul and discovered their details were revealed by Nominet as it felt the domain was being used for commercial purposes.


Beware wary, and watch your privacy with UK domains.
