Whois Privacy Protection

$7.56 / year


With the WHOIS protection option, you’ll be able to conceal your private info that can be seen on the web upon a WHOIS lookup on your domain name. In this way, when someone carries out a WHOIS lookup on your domain, they will see fictional information rather than your private details. With this option turned on, you’ll never have to be worried that somebody may use your physical address or phone number to disturb you. The WHOIS protection functionality is available with most of the domains offered on our site and you can find it in the Domain Manager built into your Control Panel.

Description

What is Whois?

WHOIS (pronounced as the phrase “who is”) is a query and response protocol that is widely used for querying databases that store the registered users or assignee’s of an Internet resource, such as a domain name, an IP address block or an autonomous system, but is also used for a wider range of other information. When it was created it was likened to the white pages of the internet. It contains things such as who the domain is registered with, name, address, phone number, email, and name server information.
