WHOIS Privacy Services
Looking to Protect Your Company Information?
Because domain registrars and registries are required to maintain and providea searchable, public database of domain registrations, called WHOIS,there is easily accessible contact information published on the Web whichpresents companies who register domain names with a privacy challenge. ManyWHOIS database records contain information about the registrant, administrativecontact, technical contact, and billing contact for a domain in additionto the technical information such as DNS servers and IP addresses associatedwith a name. In order to minimize emails from spammers and/or phonecalls from marketers who mine WHOIS to capture your contact information,we offer multiple WHOIS privacy options to protect the identity of our customersand the associated contact information for domains registered with Safenames.
