Private Domain Registration Services

Private Registration allows you to hide your contact information (name, address, phone number, email address etc.) from the publicly accessible portion of your domain WHOIS record.

Private Registration makes it harder for identity thieves to steal your contact information, and may help prevent against fraud conducted in your name.

Private Domain Registrations also prevent spammers from obtaining your name and email address and may help you stay off of spam lists.

Below is an example using made-up information about a fake domain to illustrate how Private Registration works.

In the first column, a made-up person, James Mills, is listed on the public portion of the WHOIS record for his domain,, along with his private email address, phone and fax numbers, and street address. In the second column, all of his information has been protected by Private Registration. No private information is listed on the protected WHOIS record, and spammers will be unable to obtain his email address.
