Namecheap Announces Free Whois Privacy for Life

Starting today Namecheap includes WhoisGuard free forever with almost all domain registrations or renewals.

Namecheap, a top domain registrar, web hosting and technology company, continues its nearly two decade commitment to providing its millions of customers products and services to help protect privacy and increase security. Starting today, nearly all new domain purchases and renewals will include a free WhoisGuard subscription, allowing customers the opportunity to disclose or hide their personal contact information listed in Whois. *WhoisGuard not available for TLDs that do not support privacy. See the complete list here.

With WhoisGuard, personal information for domains registered is blocked from appearing in public records and listings, as WhoisGuard shields this personal data from the world, so the Whois database will only display generic contact information for a website.

“At Namecheap we respect everyone’s right to keep their personal information protected, and it is our strong belief that online privacy should be universal and equally available for all Internet users, ” said Richard Kirkendall, Namecheap CEO. “That’s why we decided to make WhoisGuard privacy protection free forever for our customers.”

Namecheap has a rich tradition of putting customers first, never selling personal information to third parties, and vigorously protecting customer privacy. Namecheap is committed to superior customer service, as well as providing the best user experience and products for its customers. Visit today to purchase top-level domains starting as low as $0.88, web hosting packages for as little as $2.88 per month and SSL certificates for only $8.88 a year.
