Spammers and thieves can get your information through your domain name’s public record. ID Protect keeps your information safe by privatizing your domain’s entry in public records.

Protection Plus Peace of Mind
Keeps You Safe
ID Protect keeps your information private, so identity thieves can’t find you.
Get Emails That Matter
Legitimate emails such as purchase offers for your domain are still forwarded to you.
Your contact details are kept out of the hands of spammers, so you get less spam.
Complies with ICANN
ID Protect follows rules set out by ICANN, the governing body for domain names.
Why is my personal information available when I purchase a domain name?
Rules established by ICANN, the governing body for domain names, require valid contact information be publicly available for all domain names. ID Protect provides valid contact information that satisfies these requirements without exposing your personal contact information.
What personal information is displayed in domain name Whois?
Domain name Whois displays name, address, and email address. Anyone anywhere can search the Whois database through any search engine and many other web sites. ID Protect provides proxy information instead of your personal contact information. Parties who want to contact you use the proxy information, and we forward to you.
