EU legislation introduced to ban anonymous domain registration

• Bleeping Computer

When an Internet domain is registered, a registrar will collect information such as the purchaser's name, address, email, and phone number. However, this information is not verified to be accurate and could contain false information.

The EU's new directive will add new provisions regarding how domain registrars collect information from registrants and who will have access to said information.

More specifically, registrants of new domains will be required to provide a valid telephone number belonging to them, while their full name, email, and physical address will have to be verified too.
