ive been told i cannot opt out of WHOIS if i park my pages?
this is true, if you use a domain commercially you cannot opt out.
If you use your domain for business activity then you can't opt out and tag holders should be made to adhere as well.
Notice recently I've had a few emails come back from the Automaton weeks after I've registered a domain indicating the opt-out status has been changed, domains in question are parked at SEDO.
Are Nominet automatically going through domains and changing the opt-out status ? Thought someone was trying to hack my account.
this is pathetic.
if an individual registers a domain at 123-reg with default 123-reg nameservers [which include sponsored ads] - is it right for nominet to change your opt out status because "someone is making profit" out of the domain
what about personal blogs that have affiliate banners, or google sponsored ads?
what a joke.
Can a 3rd party request that Nominet change your opt out status ?
The last domain that Nominet changed the opt out status on, I received a letter from a 3rd party asking me to relenquish control of the domain to them the following day, seems too much of a coincidence that the letter came so quickly after opt out status changed.
try taking it to the data commissioner
The 3rd party can highlight to Nominet if you have opted out when you are using the domain commercially, Nominet don't go looking for this themselves.
Once Nom are aware they will change it (it happened to me).
Sorry to burst the bubble
Nominet (Staff) do look and assume without looking
No we don't. We respond to complaints about the opt-out, or if we are dealing with the domain for other reasons and notice a problem then we act. We do not go looking for infringements.
