What is Domain Privacy?

Use our WHOIS Protection Service (WPS) for your domain privacy and shield your personal data from being seen when a public WHOIS search is done of your domain name.

We replace your personal data with our WHOIS protection data. To contact the actual registrant, the public can still send messages to the replaced Email address. The message will be relayed to the registrant email address.

Why Do I need Domain Privacy?

Your personal WHOIS information should always be for your eyes only. However, when you register a domain name, your name, phone number, Email address, and physical address automatically become public knowledge due to official ICANN regulations for domain name registrations.

This makes you vulnerable to spammers, hackers, direct marketers and identity thefts. Now you can keep your information safely locked away with our WHOIS Protection Service (WPS).

How Domain Privacy Works

New Registrations

Adding WHOIS Protection Services (WPS) to a new domain registration is fast and easy. Simply make sure to “Enable” the WPS feature under “Domain Privacy” during checkout, at which time you will be added the 7.90 annual fee. Click continue and complete your purchase.

Existing Domains

If you are looking to add WHOIS Protection Services (WPS) to a registered domain, simply log in to your United Domains account, choose the “My Domains” tab find the “Domain Privacy” column, and click on the “activate” button next to every domain. In minutes, your information will be safely protected online.

For your piece of mind, WHOIS Protection Services will auto-renew annually, so you’ll never have to worry about exposing your personal information to the public again.

Eligible Domains

WHOIS Protection is available for selected generic domain extensions and new generic domain extensions.

Pricing

Your domain privacy will cost you just $$7.90 per domain name. If you decide to add WHOIS Protection Services to your existing domain, you will be billed for the remainder of your current registration period only. After that you will be billed $$7.90 for every year. For your convenience domain privacy is set to auto-renew.

Frequently Asked Questions About Domain Privacy

I purchased WPS for my domain. How long will it be active?

That’s up to you. If your domain is set to Auto-Renew and you want to renew Whois Privacy Services as well, just make sure you have set Whois Privacy Services to “On” in your United Domains account before the domain’s renewal date arrives. You will automatically be charged for another year of Domain Privacy.

If Whois Privacy Services are set to “Off” when your domain name renews, then Domain Privacy will not renew automatically and your personal data will be entered into the public WHOIS database. You will still have the option to enable them at any point during your domain’s registration term.
