What are proxy services and why are they used?
Proxy services are offered to conceal the contact details of a domain name holder for a variety of reasons. One such reason is privacy considerations: some users do not wish for their private data to be displayed on the web-based WHOIS. At EURid, we automatically minimize the amount of personal data available on the web-based WHOIS, limiting visible information to email address and language, which are required in order to be able to contact the domain holder. For legal entities holding a domain name, additional information is displayed.
If you have registered a .eu domain name and wish for your email address not to be visible on the web-based WHOIS, you may provide your registrar with an additional, functioning email address, which will be displayed in the web-based WHOIS instead of the current address. You will be able to verify your both email addresses on your ‘My .eu’ account.
