    I thought you did it, best way possible.

    $9.99 privacy is egregious.

    Best move, done best way. Sad, California was what forced your hand. Looks to be a win-win. Less options for bloated add-ons. Remove $9.99 privacy took long..? Better late than never

    Actually it's not fully GDPR-compliant. I have a 1-person-company and so my first and last name are part of the company name. Under GDPR those are protected (even when I'm running a company), so showing Organization in plain whois might be a problem. Personally I don't mind, I'm just saying in general.

    In the meantime if you wish receive whois inquiries, show all your info along with organization name.
    If you wish to go under the radar, enable privacy protection and leave organization name field empty. People will only see country and state.

    It wasnt working this way. If you didnt have privacy purchased it would show all your info.
    Here is the thing you might have missed for a long time.
    For domains registered at godaddy, if you did a whois search on dynadot, namecheap, or any other registrar, it wouldnt show any info. You had to make the whois search on godaddy's website for domains registered at godaddy to reveal their whois information.
    Its no longer showing anything, unless you enable it.

    According to the latest ICAAN regulations,
    Now WHOS for all domain names are all hidden, right?

    Interestingly, Uni already had a similar system in place (default, basic privacy showing state, country, and organization).
    Could be some regulation thing.
