Domain Privacy and Ownership Protection

Keep your domain safe and your personal details private with advanced security from 123 Reg

Stay safe online with advanced domain protection

While the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has helped to keep domain registrations anonymous by restricting what information can be published to the WHOIS database, there’s still a long way to go.

Domain-related online threats are common and even more so now that identity thieves and hackers can also take advantage of private domain registration by shielding their details too.

Domain Ownership and Privacy Protection from 123 Reg adds an extra layer of security by locking your domain under a unique password that only you have access to. This protects you from theft, malicious transfers or even honest mistakes like the accidental deletion of your domain.

And that’s not all – this service comes with free domain privacy protection as standard, so you can rest assured that your details will be hidden from the registry and WHOIS, preventing third-party access.

It also gives you a renewal guarantee for your domain, so it’s protected for a year, even if your renewal fails for any reason.

Take advantage of the highest level of domain privacy and stay safe online with Domain Ownership Protection from 123 Reg.
