Daily Poll: How Much is GDPR Impacting Your Domain Business?

GDPR has been in force for about a week now. Several major domain registrars have removed Whois information for domain names registered there, but some of the largest domain registrars are still showing Whois information. As has been discussed extensively, GDPR may be problematic for domain name investors, especially those who use Whois information to buy or sell domain names.

With GDPR in force for a week now, I would ask how it is impacting your domain investment business so far:

  1. This is a very important and interesting poll. Thanks, Elliot. I hope those that participate also post here as to why they voted in a certain way. Especially if you have been impacted in a negative way. So far we haven’t seen any impact yet.
