What is Private Domain Registration?
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires that we make the contact information associated with domain registration available to the public via the Whois directory. The Whois database is an online repository of information associated with registered domain names. It stores and publicly displays domain name information, such creation and expiration dates, the registrar of record, and its various contacts (registrant, billing, administrative, and technical). Private domain registration is a service that hides personal domain name contact information like your name, address, email address, and phone number from the public.
We understand the thought of displaying your personal information to the public is alarming – but we’re here to protect and help you! Our affiliate company, Domains By Proxy®, offers a private domain registration service that lets you list Domain By Proxy’s contact information in the Whois database instead of your own!
What is the difference between public domain registration and private domain name registration?
When you purchase Private Domain Registration services, the Whois database lists a generic name, mailing address, and phone number instead of your personal contact information.
we also create a private unique email address for your domain name — you decide to have any arriving email forwarded, filtered for spam, or not forwarded at all.
