Go Daddy offers domain name registrations which replace the registrant’s actual WHOIS information by “Domains By Proxy, Inc” int he registrant field and in all the contact fields. From a formal point of view, this looks like an application of section 3.7.7.3 of the RAA: Domains By Proxy is the Registered Domain Name Holder, and and licenses the use of the domain name to the “actual” registrant. By doing so, Domains By Proxy accepts “liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the Registered Name, unless it promptly discloses the identity of the licensee to a party providing the Registered Name Holder reasonable evidence of actionable harm.”
