Why don't my domains show me as owner?

    I have several domains/sites and a recent check at whois shows that 2 of my domains do NOT list me as the owner:confused:

    Why would this be? They haven't expired.

    Any thoughts??

    Did you have whois privacy activated?

    Where did you register it? Some resellers keep the domain name under their own name. You should change the whois.

    Do you have domain lock activated? I have heard of some scammy companies transferring domains that don't have the lock on. A company tried to scam me like that years ago by posing as a legitimate registrar, luckily I had the lock on.
