Why Choose Domain Privacy Protection?

You control the flow of information

Domain Privacy Protection shields your name, email, phone number and complete address from hackers, spammers and identity thieves. You control your information on the public WHOIS directory while also retaining complete control over your domain.

Stop Hackers & Spammers in Their Tracks

With your complete personal information easily accessible in the WHOIS you’ll receive dozens of spam emails daily, telemarketing calls from agencies, and dubious sollicitations from other companies pretending to be your current provider. Reduce your risks by shielding your information with Domain Privacy Protection.

Any of these could include viruses or malware designed to scam you or steal from you. Opting out of privacy protection exposes you to greater risk and is not recommended.
Yes. Certain extensions are managed by registries that have chosen to opt out of the privacy protection service, or that are subject to certain requirements that WHC does not yet support. Here is a non-exhaustive list: .BE, .DE, .ES, .EU, .FR, .NYC, .PRO and .US.
