Last week we received a lot of positive comments regarding our GDPR TLD matrix. And we had a lot of requests to get access to the matrix.
As a push to create more GDPR awareness, we decided to publish our API on the website for the public, including the GDPR TLD matrix.
You can enter the matrix here.
Keep in mind the matrix has been developed with the Realtime Register processes in mind and in some instances cannot be merely be pasted and copied.
One comment which we received a lot last week was:”wow there are so many unknowns.”
While that observation is spot on, it is the reality we all have to deal with in the TLD industry, and it is very annoying that at this stage we still do not have clear answers.
Most registries still have to determine their position on what they will publish in the WHOIS and what not.
So feel free to use the GDPR TLD Matrix.If there is a sense amongst registrars and registries turning the GDPR TLD Matrix into a collaborative effort, feel free to contact me.
I expect to update the matrix over two weeks and add a few more categories plus more information.
