When you register a domain name, your contact details are available through a publicly-accessible database called WhoIs. This database is managed by domain registries (the organisations that oversee domain registrations) and allows people to find contact details of the owner of any domain name.
The WhoIs database acts like a phone book for domain names, storing your name, phone number, postal address and email address. Since the data is available to the public, it’s open to abuse through unsolicited marketing, email spam and even unauthorised attempts to transfer your domain.
Following customer feedback, our new domain privacy feature hides all contact information from within these publicly accessible databases. It’s the perfect solution for anyone who does not want their contact details available on the internet.
- Protect against identity theft
- Protect against nuisance sales phone calls and letters
- Protect against email spam
- Protect against fraudulent domain transfers
For a low annual fee, we’ll hide your contact details from the publicly-accessible WhoIs databases and protect against all of these problems.
