IQWHOIS Launches Tool for EU Residents to Remove WHOIS Data in Response to GDPR

Regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy aims to give citizens and residents control over personal data; comprehensive WHOIS database and lookup tool adds billions of historic records.

Walnut, United States - July 12, 2018 /PressCable/ —

IQWHOIS, a comprehensive WHOIS database download and lookup tool with a database that offers over 300 million current individual domain name records which are updated regularly and billions of historic domain name records, has launched a mechanism for EU residents in which they can send a request to have their WHOIS information removed from IQWHOIS’ website in response to GDPR. Additionally, IQWHOIS representatives have announced that the database has added billions of historic WHOIS records to enrich the domain WHOIS search service in a number of ways.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA), and also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. Primarily, the GDPR aims to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

“With Europe’s GDPR having come into effect this past May, the future of WHOIS is looking a little clearer,” states IQWHOIS’ Jonathan Zhang. “In terms of how this impacts WHOIS, the GDPR affects how registries and registrars list the personal information of domain name registrants in publicly-accessible WHOIS directories like ours. While registries and registrars will still be required to collect the same amount of information as they were previously, only very limited information will be made available via WHOIS, and IQWHOIS is complying with that through our tool that allows EU residents to remove their information from our database.”

In the other IQWHOIS news announcement, the comprehensive and customized database has been given a boost by way of billions of historic WHOIS records that IQWHOIS reps say enrich their offered services. As it stands, IQWHOIS boasts some five billion WHOIS records, 300 million active domain names and more than 2,864 TLDs, with the WHOIS database download offered by IQWHOIS containing relevant information regarding given domains – information that can be tailored to a specific business’ needs and easily integrated with its own services.

IQWHOIS’ database download feature provides organization names, registrant names, emails, registration addresses, registrar information, creation/expiry dates, last update dates, domain ages/availability and more.

Psychologist: Cosby a predator with uncontrollable urges

Sep 24, 2018

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Bill Cosby's sentencing hearing opened Monday with a debate over whether the 81-year-old comedian should be declared a "sexually violent predator" — a scarlet letter that would make him subject to mandatory lifetime counseling and community notification of his whereabouts. Cosby, who faces up to 30 years in prison for drugging and molesting a Temple University women's basketball administrator in 2004, fought the prosecution's effort to classify him as a predator under state law. Kristen Dudley, a Pennsylvania state board psychologist, testified that Cosby has an uncontrollable urge to violate young women and would probably commit another...

CBS star Weatherly says Moonves situation is 'complicated'

Sep 24, 2018

NEW YORK — Michael Weatherly is a fixture at CBS. He played Anthony DiNozzo on "NCIS" from its premiere in 2003 until 2016, when he left to star in his own CBS series, "Bull." It's that history with the network that Weatherly says makes it difficult to comment on Les Moonves' resignation earlier this month as chief of CBS amid sexual misconduct allegations. "Not to get into any of the ifs, ands or buts about what is right or wrong and where it comes from," Weatherly said in a recent interview. "Professionally I owe a great part of my career...

The Latest: Cosby's other accusers won't speak at sentencing

Sep 24, 2018

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — The Latest on Bill Cosby's sentencing hearing (all times local): 11:45 a.m. None of the other accusers who testified at Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial will take the stand at his sentencing hearing. Cosby was convicted of sexually assaulting a Temple University women's basketball administrator in 2004. Five other women who say Cosby molested them also testified at the April retrial. Prosecutors had hoped to have some of the other accusers address the court at sentencing to paint Cosby as a serial sexual predator deserving of prison. But the district attorney's office told The Associated Press on...
