What is Domain Privacy and Do I Need It?
We make sure your private information stays that way... private!
Here at GetDotted, we believe in everyone's right to privacy. That's why when you register domain names with us, you can rest assured that your registrant details are safe and secure. We don't publish your information and we'll never sell your email address or any other personal information and you're automatically protected from spammers.
Improvements and changes to privacy law and how your data is handled now mean that when you register a domain name, none of your details will be published by default. Your details remain safe from spammers and are not visible on WHOIS lookups. Only law enforcement and similar organisations with legitimate interest or legal cause can request access to your details from the domain registry.
A more private internet sounds great doesn't it? But what if you want to keep your details private whilst remaining contactable? That's where our Domain Contact Privacy comes in!
Domain Contact Privacy
Stay in touch without compromising your privacy.
It may seem odd that our Domain Contact Privacy enables you to be contacted, but there are a number of reasons why you might want to keep an open channel of communication.
Perhaps you're in the business of registering domain names as investments. For prospective buyers, finding out who owns a domain name is paramount. But at the same time, you don't want your registrant email address available for anyone who does a WHOIS search, right?
With our Domain Contact Privacy service, your address remains hidden. The WHOIS information for the domain shows a forwarding address so you can still receive the communications you want, without ever compromising your privacy, for just £2 per year.
Note for all UK domains:
Contact Privacy is available for all domain types except for UK-family domains (.co.uk, org.uk, .me.uk and .uk). For .UK domains, you can opt to display registrant details on the WHOIS database. This opt-in is free but it will make your name and address publicly visible if you choose to use it.
