WHOIS Privacy is a domain add-on that replaces your visible personal details on the WHOIS database with our contact information.
When you register a domain name, the registered information, including your name, address and contact details, is made accessible for everyone to browse in the WHOIS database.
You can add WHOIS Privacy during a new domain registration or transfer during the checkout process. You can also order WHOIS Privacy as a domains add-on at anytime from our user control panel.
In some cases it can be beneficial to have your details publicly visible via WHOIS. For example, if you are an online business, being open with your details helps build trust and credibility.
However, if you run a blog, hobbyist or non-ecommerce transacting site, having your information open for all to see is often unnecessary. By hiding your details you shield yourself from unwanted attention from spammers, scammers and telemarketers who've been known to scour the WHOIS database for email addresses and other details.
