    Default [HELP] How to find the owner of a hidden whois Domain

    Recently someone decided to steal my product and sell it as his own. He even copied my design.
    I did a whois on the domain but its WhoisGuard protected my question is what should my next steps be ? Who should I contact in order to get his site down... is there a way to bypass the whoisguard and see his information ?

    You can't get the hidden whois info.

    Partially true.

    Namecheap (the company that manages WhoisGuard) are pretty strict about these things and don't give away any information. GoDaddy, on the other hand, are known to reveal "protected" details quite easily - all it takes is one email/fax from a "lawyer" and they'll happily comply to avoid any further problems. At least it used to be like that about a year ago.

    So yeah - in your situation the only two solutions would be to either send a DMCA compaint to their hosting provider or to sue them.

    Look up the whois history in domaintools. If the domain was initially registered publicly and then had whois protection added, you will be able to see the old whois info.
