    Even with Domain Privacy enabled, the "Sponsoring Registrar" still show up in the WHOIS info for my websites.

    I have seen website where the "Sponsoring Registrar" is hidden.

    How can I do such things?

    Thanks,

    I'm guessing a small Non US registrar who doesn't use "Domain's By proxy" service in Scottsdale AZ I see everywhere.

    But I don't know the true answer to this so I will bump because I am interested in knowing as well.

    You'll need to find a registrar who doesn't add that field to the whois. Generally this means you find a registrar who is themselves registered with icann rather than reselling someone else's services. Then it will show that registrar in the Registrar field, rather than having a Sponsoring Registrar field.

    If you're asking for a way to completely hide the registrar responsible for the domain, that's not possible.
