Found 19th Nov 2010
Hi,

We are in the process of setting up a website to start selling my partners paintings, the website is hosted by qiq but the whois lookup just says

Registrant's address:
The registrant is a non-trading individual who has opted to have their
address omitted from the WHOIS service.

Do I need to get this altered, I've seen a lot of people on here won't buy from a website unless there are proper contact details in the whois information.

Do I just ask qiq to enter our address and contact number in the zone file - this maybe something I can do from the customer portal?

Are there any drawbacks to this? Do people with similar small enterprises put thier phone number and address on there - I'm not sure if I want my home address and phone number for anyone to see?

Thanks for any advice, shes sold a lot of paintings but we're a bit new to doing it online as you can tell.

worto.

You will need to ask qiq to do this as very few hosts let their customers change this themselves. There is usually a charge for changing the details. Worth dropping them an email with ur requirements
