Will my name and contact information be publicly available?


Yes. Information about the registrant and people who is responsible to manage, billing and administration is publicly available to allow rapid resolution of technical problems and to permit enforcement of consumer protection, trademark and other laws. This information is available to the public through the WHOIS service.


What if the domain name I want to use is already taken?


You can choose an alternative domain name, or same name with different TLD/ extension, for example, if is not available, you can register if available, or wait until the current one expires (not recommended) or if you feel that you have a right to the unavailable domain name, you could follow the domain dispute policy and try to acquire that particular domain name.
