  2. Legal Type of Registrant Contact (e.g. UK Individuals, Non-UK Individuals, UK Public Limited Companies)
  3. Company Identification Number (for Legal Types related to companies)

FREE WHOIS Privacy for individuals!

At DreamHost, we care about your privacy, and we’re happy that Nominet does too! Nominet hides all personal information by default for individuals, for free! Please note that Nominet does not extend this policy to non-individual domains such as companies or partnerships.
