We are constantly indexing the latest whois data for our whois category. “Whois” data contains information about domain ownership.
We recently indexed the whois data for October, November, and December 2019 which resulted in 21,168,724 selectors. We analyzed a small sample set (1 day, 2019-11-29) and these are the results:

However, the other 25% is not whois protected. Here is a breakdown by registrant country:
When looking at TLDs, there were interestingly no domains from some TLDs like DE and AT. This could be an indicator that the actual number of privacy protected domains might be higher than 75%.
At Intelligence X we categorize data sources into buckets. Buckets can be used as filters and to broadly identify the source of individual search results. For example, the bucket “Darknet Tor” indicates the result origins from some a Tor hidden service (.onion domain) and was collected by our Tor crawler. Buckets have human readable names
We just added support for an additional 152 top-level domains (TLDs), increasing the support to 511 TLDs in total. Support means that you can search for those domains across intelx.io and APIs, and internally that our backend supports processing them. While you can start searching for them immediately, it will take some time until our
