According to the regulations of most registries it is required to specify and to make the owner data publicly available during the registration. This can be the name, address and e-mail address of the registrant. Incorrect information can cause the deletion of the domain.
With a public whois search everyone can view the owner data. Here our 'Whois Privacy' service comes into use. With this service we give you the possibility of remaining anonymous and protect your data against abuse. Thus you avoid SPAM, disturbance, identy theft, etc.
The hiding of your information does not mean that you cannot be contacted. If someone wants to reach you he can complete a form on www.domainprivacyprotect.info which will be sent to you as the owner.
If you want to transfer a domain with activated Whois Privacy to another provider it has to be disabled first.
