If you have purchased WHOIS Domains Privacy for your domain name but your personal details are still being displayed on a WHOIS report, please ensure that you have activated the WHOIS Privacy through your 123 Reg control panel as explained in the WHOIS Privacy welcome email.

To activate WHOIS privacy for your domain name, you will need to do the following:

Step 1 of 3

Login to your 123 Reg control panel.

Step 2 of 3

In the Domain names section, click on the Manage link below WHOIS privacy.

Using the radio buttons, select the Privacy Status, for the relevant domain name, as on.

Click on Save changes. To turn it off again, simply repeat the process but select Off.


Please note: If you transfer your domain name to another 123 Reg account or to a separate provider then the Whois service will remain active.
