What is Private Registration and do I need it?

Typically when you register a domain name, your contact information is publicly available. Private Registration offers a premium service to domain name registrants to protect their personal information from being displayed in the public Whois. You control who reaches you and when.

NOTE: Some TLDs do not allow you to add Private Registration. We restrict you from adding Private Registration to the domains that don't support it.

What information will be displayed for my domain name?

When you choose our Private Registration Service, your personal contact information will be private and your Whois information replaced with Digital Privacy Corporation's information. This will stop all unwanted emails from spammers and advertisers, and still keep you in touch with potential customers and partners!

Private Registration will help you

  • Keep your personal and family information private
  • Eliminate domain related spam
  • Prevent domain name hijacking
  • Block harassers and stalkers
  • End data mining
  • Shield legitimate business endeavors

Private Registration will protect

  • Your Name
  • Your Address
  • Your Email

Check our Private Registration product page for pricing and additional information.
