Domain Privacy keeps your domain and personal details safe from theft

Keep your identity, private

With Domain privacy, your name, address, email and phone numbers are replaced with standard contact information. Applying Domain Privacy prevents your personal information from being compromised by thieves, spammers and data miners.

No telemarketers & junk mail

Eliminate spam and pesky phone calls from telemarketers. With Domain Privacy, your real information is never displayed in public to give you more time to focus on what matters.

Keep thieves away

Domain hijacking is often used by thieves for scams and viruses. With Domain Privacy, your information is kept confidential to make sure that you, and only you, control your domain names.

WHOIS Protection

When you register a domain name, your personal information is automatically entered into the public WHOIS directly. By protecting your data with Domain Privacy, our proxy data keeps your contact details safe.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Domain Privacy? Why do I need it?

Whenever you register a domain name, your personal information – i.e. full name, address, email and phone number – are automatically added onto a public directory called WHOIS (Who is). The WHOIS directory is accessible by anyone, which means that hackers, thieves and spammers can easily find out the information of an owner of an unprotected domain name.

This means that unprotected domain names are vulnerable to being stolen, which is a major risk to business owners that rely on a website to reach customers. Domain Privacy replaces your personal information with a generic contact address to keep your data safe.

Do I lose control over my domain name if it is protected with Domain Privacy?

No – only your contact information is replaced. Ownership and management of your domain name belongs to you and only you.

Do domain extensions have Domain Privacy by default?

Individual registrants of a .CA domain name automatically receive Domain Privacy. However, Canadian businesses and organizations will need to secure Domain Privacy for their domain names.

Which Domain Extensions can I apply Domain Privacy to?

Domain Privacy is applicable to most domain extensions. This includes .CA, .COM, .NET, .INFO, .ORG, .BIZ, .CN, .ASIA, .CC, .TV and more. The Domain Privacy service can also be applied to the new domain extensions like .ATTORNEY and .XYZ.

Is Domain Privacy spam proof?

Yes!’s Domain Privacy service filters all WHOIS generated spam messages. The only emails that you continue to receive in your inbox are official registrar and registry messages. All other emails are blocked and returned to the sender with an automated response.

*Domain Privacy is applied to the registrant profile; therefore all domains under the same registrant must have privacy.
**Domain Privacy can be applied to all domain names, except .WS and .US domain names. Individual registrants of .CA automatically receive free Domain Privacy through the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA).
