What is WhoIs Privacy?

WhoIs Privacy also known as Domain Privacy is a service that hides all your personal information from the public eye. The Registrant, Admin, Billing and Tech contact information will be hidden. This will protect you from spammers, identity thieves, hackers and domain hijacking.

Why is my information displayed?

The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires all accredited registrars to publish the registrant's contact information, domain creation and expiration dates and other information in the global WhoIs database as soon as a domain is registered.

Who can see my information?

Everyone can see your information. The name, address and phone number you submit when you register your domain is publicly accessible by anyone at any time. This is good if you are trying to sell your domain name, but bad news if your name and contact info is collected by a spammer, hacker or identity thief.

How does WhoIs Privacy work?

To keep your personal data private and secure, Crazy Domains offers Domain Privacy (WhoIs Privacy) through our official partner, Private Registry Authority who will shield your personal information from the public and the global WhoIs database.
