Domain Privacy Registration

What is it?

Domain privacy locks your personal or company information from the WHOIS internet directory. During the domain registration process, personal and business information is published in a public directory. By activating private registration you mask your data so it is not public.

Why should you care?

The main reason to activate privacy registration is to protect your privacy. Anyone can look up the name, email, phone number, and address of the person who registers a domain. For those who use all purely business information in their registration process, privacy may not be a concern; however, spam may become a problem. Since the information is public knowledge, it is easy for your email and phone to begin receiving spam content and calls.

Let us do the work!

We will:

  • Add private registration to your domain package (this fee is dependant on your registrar)
  • Activate private registration
  • Review WHOIS database to confirm new information propagates correctly
