If you are a domain name holder you are required by ICANN to list valid personal contact information.
Unfortunatly this listing is public so any one can see your details.
Now you can hide personal information by buying Domain ID Protection.
This available for top level domains .com .net .org .biz .info .eu
When ordering .UK domains you can specify not to have your details listed free of charge.
Domain ID Protection works by changing the legal owner of the domain name to the provider of a Domain ID Protection service, whereby both complying with ICANN rules and the need to protect your privacy.
The Domain ID Protection service provider will never take over your domain name even though they would be considered the legal owner of the domain name. The service provider merely acts as an intermediary.
See the following link as an example of Domain ID Protection for our domain harryhomers.org

A registrant can only use the opt-out if they are a consumer, i.e. a living individual who is not using their domain name in the course of a business, trade or profession.
