    Even if they have a privacy listing, it still shows their domain hosting company. Privacy only protects the owner's personal contact information.

    However, with the new cyberstocking laws going into place, thanks to hosting server companies complaining about the hacker threat instead of posting a better security standards on their machines, if you intend to use this for anything other than research, I highly suggesting you don't. Big brother is looming over people on that one. Just a heads up.
