Adjustment of the WHOIS service in response to the implementation of GDPR


March 29, 2018


In response to the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by the European Union (EU), starting from April 25 of 2018, the Taiwan Network Information Center (TWNIC) may make certain necessary masking adjustments to the results of the WHOIS inquiries regarding EU registrants.

EU registrants may contact TWNIC if the registrant wishes to restore the display of its WHOIS information back to the original format. Latest information on TWINIC’s WHOIS service will be made available at https://www.twnic.net.tw/en_blog.php.
