How can I tell when the domain name for our site will expire?

Visit http://www.whois.net/ and enter your URL. You'll see information about your website including when it started and when the current registration expires.

I just looked up my domain at this site and discovered that my address and phone number are available to anyone who searches my domain. I'm not sure that I like that.

James,

There are several sites you can use. I find this to be one of the least confusing: http://www.whois-search.com/

Clean, uncluttered home page; one only data entry box; quick, succinct summary of creation and expiration dates.

Well, I do recall that they sent me an e-mail telling me to pay up cuz I was expiring in X number of days.

If you are using classnames.net, log in, click on Registered Domains, and the expiration date is right there.

Probably works about the same with any domain service.

M:O)

Tam, You might consider adding domain privacy to your domain name. With domain privacy, the name of the company providing the privacy shows up instead of the site administrator's name. You can look up my site (www.sammamish61.com) on whois.net to see how this looks. Classnames.net calls domain privacy ID PROTECT, and they charge $8 per year for it.
