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.

Dale Steyn back in SAfrica's ODI squad after 2 years out

Sep 20, 2018

JOHANNESBURG — Dale Steyn returned to South Africa's limited-overs squad on Friday and is in line to play his first one-day international in two years in the home series against Zimbabwe starting this month. Shoulder and ankle injuries kept the 35-year-old fast bowler out of action for long spells in recent years. Steyn missed more than a year of test cricket from late 2016 to early 2018 because of shoulder problems. He injured his ankle on his return to tests at the start of the year. Steyn did play in the two-test series in Sri Lanka in July but his...

New look Egypt gives fans something to cheer about

Sep 20, 2018

CAIRO — The Pharaohs have at last given Egyptians something to cheer about and, not surprisingly, Liverpool's Mohammed Salah played a big part in it. A record seven-time African champion, the Pharaohs thrashed Niger 6-0 in African Cup of Nations qualifying on Saturday, their first competitive match since their miserable run in the World Cup in Russia where the team lost all three group matches. It was also the Pharaohs' first win in nearly a year. Egypt last won a competitive match in October when Salah converted from the spot in injury time against Republic of Congo for a 2-1...

Salah must tread carefully if he's to reform soccer in Egypt

Sep 20, 2018

CAIRO — Thanks to his star power and a government keen to keep its most valuable international asset happy, Mohamed Salah has won his latest tussle with Egypt's soccer federation after his demands for better security and improved discipline at the Pharaohs' camps have been met. But how long will a government that's shown little tolerance for dissent put up with the Liverpool star's show of independence and quest for change? As long as he plays brilliantly, Salah's sweeping popularity will protect him, while giving the government of general-turned-president Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi the global good publicity it wants. But Salah must...

Former world half marathon champion Paul Koech dies at 49

Sep 20, 2018

NAIROBI, Kenya — Paul Koech, a former world half marathon champion and long-time teammate of Kenyan great Paul Tergat, has died. He was 49. The Kenyan track and field federation said Wednesday that Koech died Monday after a short illness. The federation did not release any more details. "Paul was a great track, cross-country and road-racing athlete," Athletics Kenya said. Koech won the world half marathon championship in Zurich in 1998. At the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, he finished sixth in the 10,000 meters and the following year was fourth at the world championships. Tergat won silver in both of those...

Salah takes on Egyptian federation over World Cup debacle

Sep 20, 2018

CAIRO — Emboldened by his global star power, Mohamed Salah has said out loud what many of his Egyptian teammates have been saying in private for weeks: Failure by the national federation to enforce discipline and stop meddling by sponsors was mostly to blame for the Pharaohs' miserable World Cup run in Russia. The Liverpool star posted a video clip this week on social media complaining about the chaos at the team's World Cup base in Grozny, capital of Russia's Chechnya region, and calling for better discipline in training camps and security for players. Salah's agent, lawyer Ramy Abbas, went...
