We’re keeping your personal info private: Changes in MYNIC WHOIS Service

Dear Valued Customers,

Over the past years, MYNIC has been working continuously to build the best experience for our customers. MYNIC is the official .MY domain registry for all .MY domain names. We provide Malaysian organizations and individuals with their unique brand identities on the Internet. As part of our service, we maintain MYNIC WHOIS query to help you searches all .MY domain names for information on domain registration and availability.

In accordance with Malaysia Personal Data Protection Act 2010 (PDPA) and the increasing demand for privacy online, MYNIC is pleased to announce that MYNIC WHOIS service will remove the display of name, address, and email address of all 4 contact types (Registrant, Administrative Contact, Technical Contact and Billing Contact) associated with a .MY domain name. These significant steps in-line with global efforts to protect personal data and privacy challenges.

Hence, with effect from 8th November 2022, MYNIC will further restrict the amount of contact information displayed in MYNIC WHOIS as shown below.

MYNIC provides a Domain Contact Request (available from 8th November 2022) if you need to contact the Registrant or domain contacts for legitimate reasons, such as:

  • The domain name is being used in malware or for spam or abuse.
  • The domain name or content infringes on a trademark or violates local laws or regulations.
  • Interest in purchasing the domain name.

However, MYNIC does not guarantee that the Registrant or domain contacts will comply with your Contact Request.

For any inquiries, you may reach us by email at customercare@mynic.my or call our customer service hotline at 1300-88-7277.

Thank you.
