>I used to run an internet business, we would register domain names using the customer's name as "owner" but with our contact details.

I would hope that for your contact email address you used something of the form:

nominet@RC-ISP.co.uk and not Richard@RC-ISP.co.uk.

The first is clear to a human (support agent) that this is a business email address and not an individual's and thus doesn't fall under GDPR.
