Hi Michele,

Thanks for the positive feedback.

I do agree with you that a public WHOIS has issues due to privacy
conflicts. However in the Zimbabwean scenario for one to get the WHOIS
details you need to email the Registries requesting the details. In this
case anyone can get the WHOIS details. Since anyone can get the WHOIS
details it may be much better if we can have a public WHOIS database with
the option for protecting the WHOIS details if you do do need them to be
public. This option can be much better since you can choose to keep your
details private through Privacy Protection.

Now the issue comes when you have to wait a day or two even more to get a
response to your WHOIS request. Having it online will ensure getting the
WHOIS details instantly making the experience much better.

Best Regards,
