Domain Privacy

Stop your contact details from being published online

“Domain Privacy gave me the comfort to know people couldn’t use my personal info – particularly since I was working from home.”

Dan Hubert, CEO AppyParking

Keep your personal information private

When you register a domain name, your contact details are automatically published online as part of the WHOIS database. This includes your name, email address and phone number.

That means you get flooded with junk mail and risk having your identity stolen. It’s not uncommon. It can happen to anyone.

Domain Privacy from 123 Reg withholds your details to protect your anonymity. Having that peace of mind is worth a lot when you’ve put everything into building a business; you can get it for just £4.99 (+20% VAT).

Frequently asked questions

  • What is Domain Privacy?

    When you purchase a domain name from any provider, your details are automatically added to the WHOIS database – a record of all domain owners. This database will display your name, address, phone number, email and more, and can be viewed by anyone.

    Domain Privacy is a service that will hide your details on the database. Your information is replaced by some generic details of ours, ensuring you are kept anonymous and preventing potential scammers and spammers from being able to contact you.

  • Which domain names can I get privacy for?

    The service is available for all the most popular extensions such as .com, .net, .co.uk, .org, .info, .me, and .co. It also can be used with most other extensions, but there is a small number that cannot yet use this service. Following are the extensions that you cannot use private registration for: .ae, .archi, .asia, .at, .be, .berlin, .co.il, .co.nz,.co.za, .cx, .de, .es, .eu, .fr, .hamburg, .im, .in, .it, .jp, .nl, .pl, .pm, .pro, .ruhr, .us, .vote.

  • How long can I buy it for?

    You can buy it annually. Please note that the costs for this service are not refundable.

    This means that if you purchase our privacy protection for a domain you are planning to let expire, you may not claim a refund for the period after it expires.

  • What information will be displayed for my domain names?

    We use a privacy service, contactprivacy.com, to hide your details. The service’s information will be displayed instead of your own. You will not be able to decide which details will be visible as there are strict regulations on what information can be displayed.

  • How will I be contacted if my details are hidden?

    Emails sent to the contact address will be forwarded to your email address, so people with legitimate queries about your domain can contact you.

  • Do I still own my domain?

    Even though the details show our privacy service, you are still the owner of the domain.
