What is domain privacy

Last Update: February 03, 2015

A private domain registration keeps your personal information - such as your name, home address, phone number and email address - out of the public eye. You have the option of getting a private domain registration with every domain you purchase.

When people register their domain name, it will often be listed online with all of their personal information. From the moment they start their site, their name, address, phone number and e-mail is instantly available for any criminal or hacker to find. You can escape this problem by getting a private domain registration. An anonymous domain registration allows you to list your domain by proxy. Your information stays secure and all personal data is kept private.

Why Use Domain by Proxy?

Many people are worried about being the target of a scam. When your information is listed online, you are instantly the focus of marketing groups, junk mail and Internet scams. Users can choose to have their site unlisted and have their personal information protected.

You can avoid the stress that comes with having all of your data available online.
