    I just killed one of my dormant domain names which had been set up as a private registration (of course) and the personal info does not show up on WHOIS. It's deferred back to Godaddy. Am I correct in the assumption that if you kill your own domain before expiry then the private info stays private rather than popping up on future WHOIS searches?

    Probably not. GD or a partner likely has the name in a portfolio now while it is analysed and put up for auction.

    Ah, that sucks. I'll have to keep an eye on that to see what happens. :)
