There is growing talk about GDPR compliance that will likely cause major changes to the Whois database. Most of the changes are still up in the air, and there have been discussions about what to do in the short term while a long term solution is hammered out.
From my vantage point, this is going to change the business of domain investing. I don’t know if it will have a major impact or if the Whois change will end up simply adding a step or two to the process of contacting domain owners or performing due diligence.
Perhaps it is just me, but it does not seem like most domain investors are concerned about this. Perhaps it is a lack of awareness or maybe people think things will work out in the end. I am curious if you are concerned about Whois changes that are likely coming as a result of GDPR compliance. I invite you to vote in the poll below and share your thoughts.
