How to hide my personal contact details when registering a domain name?
You can hide your personal contact information to reduce the chances of identity theft and data mining by purchasing the Domain Privacy Protection service for your domains. The service Domain Privacy Protection is available only for domains that are registered/transferred with us. You can purchase and apply Domain Privacy Protection for your domains using the Control Panel -> Hosting Tools -> Website Manager -> Domain Manager -> select “Options” for your domain and select the “Security” tab.
If any important information is sent to the altered (hidden) e-mail address, the message will be forwarded to your e-mail address.
Can people see the personal information I provide when registering a domain name?
When you register a domain name your contact details are recorded in the so-called WHOIS database – that maintains the contact info for all active domains. The WHOIS information for domains is publicly available as per ICANN regulations.
If you do not want to expose your contact details publicly, you can legally hide it by ordering Domain Privacy Protection for your domain. To do this you can use the How to hide my personal contact details when registering a domain name? guide.
