Sometimes the domains are registered with Adam's information because we do the registration manually. This is similar to private registration, and you can change the contact information at any time.
You cannot request HostGator to put Adam's information in your domain's WHOIS.
Also, it is not recommended to keep Adam in your WHOIS information. You need to update the WHOIS with your own information so that you can establish ownership of the domain name and get important updates and notifications (especially domain renewal instructions).
For instructions on how to update your WHOIS information, please read the following article:
With private registration, you will still receive emails concerning important updates and renewals; however, your contact information will not be listed publicly. For domains registered with HostGator/eNom, there is a $9.95 per year charge for private registration.
