What Is Domain Privacy

Domain Privacy, also known as WhoIs Privacy, is a service that hides all domain registration details from the public. This includes the Registrant, Administration, Technical, and Billing contact information (i.e.: address, email address, phone number).

Note: For some Domain Names, like .AU, Domain Privacy is not available. Though, a Private Tech is an alternative where only the Technical Contact Information can be hidden.

Why Are the Details Displayed Publicly

The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires authorised registrars to publish all registration details of every active domain to WhoIs — a global directory which is accessible to everyone.

How Does Domain Privacy Work

Domain Privacy prevents spammers, identity thieves, and hackers from accessing your domain registration details and abuse it.

Crazy Domains offers Domain Privacy through our official partner, Private Registry Authority. We will secure your details so it does not show in WhoIs.
