Domain Privacy

Current domain registration regulations require that your private contact information be included in a publicly accessible database known as WhoIs.  This means that your private information is displayed and made available to anyone that wants to see it, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Domain Privacy (aka  “Domain ID Protection”) prevents people from using WhoIs services to harvest your private contact information.

Domain Privacy works in the same way as having an unlisted phone number: it prevents people from gaining access to your address, phone number, and other private information.

A domain name with Domain Privacy can shield you from:

  • Domain related spam
  • Identity theft and fraud
  • Harassers, stalkers, and data miners
  • Name hijackers
  • Privacy intrusions and more…

Domain Privacy works by…

Shielding your private information
ID protect insures that your private contact information is not exposed.  It is held in confidentiality and protected by the Domain Privacy Protection Service.  Their contact information is displayed to provide you with the highest level of protection against spammers and identity theft.

Offering you complete control
You retain full legal ownership and control over your domain name.  You can sell, renew, transfer and change settings to your domain name just the same as before.  Your domain control panel provides you real-time access to easily manage your domain name.

This service is only available for “.com” and “.net” domain names registered with us.

Purchase Domain Privacy with your domain name when signing up for a new domain and hosting service or add it to existing domains in your account console.
