Protect Your Privacy with WhoisGuard
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) policy requires you to provide accurate contact information while registering a domain name -- or you can risk losing it. Do you know that ICANN also requires this information to be listed on a public database called the "WHOIS" database?
The WHOIS database is accessible by anyone on the Internet. Therefore, when you register a domain, you risk exposing your name, address, email, and phone number to spammers, marketing firms, and other online fraudsters. Use "WhoisGuard," our privacy protection option, and stay worry-free!
Namecheap's WhoisGuard domain privacy service is the best global domain privacy option for your domain name. Our WHOIS protection ensures that your private domain name registration always stays private as long as your privacy protection is active.
Why buy WhoisGuard?
When you purchase and enable WhoisGuard on your domain, we make the following changes in public WHOIS :
- Replace your postal address with our address.
- Replace your phone number and fax number with our phone and fax numbers.
- Replace your email address with a uniquely-generated
"firstname.lastname@example.org" email address. Every email that is sent to
the WhoisGuard address is forwarded to an email address of your choice.
