Your privacy matters

When you register a domain, you must provide and maintain up-to-date contact information for the public Whois database. This is required by ICANN and helps to regulate domain registration and ownership.

Usually, this is accessible to anyone, including marketing firms, spammers, and online fraudsters, but we strongly believe in the right to privacy for every individual.

What is a Whois privacy service and why do I need it?
  • When you register a domain, ICANN requires the registrar to forward the contact information you provide them with, for inclusion in the Internet's Whois Database.

    The free Whois privacy service replaces this personal information with anonymized contact information. This protects your private information from being mined and used for other purposes, such as identity theft or unsolicited marketing.

    In addition, our partner Withheld for Privacy, doesn’t require your information as a condition of using their privacy services.

    Withheld for Privacy is based in Iceland, a country known for its privacy standards. If you’re looking for a domain registrar with free Whois privacy service then choose Namecheap today. Read our article What is domain privacy? to find out more.

How much does the domain privacy service cost?
  • The domain privacy service is free for eligible TLDs. Looking for a cheap domain name with Whois privacy protection? Check out our 99 Cent Domain Names and grab a deal.

How do I get my free domain privacy protection service?
  • The private domain name service will be added to the Shopping cart automatically with each eligible domain registration or transfer, and it will be enabled by default. You will not need to do anything else.

Can I disable the Whois privacy service if I need or want to?
  • If you want your contact information to be listed in public Whois for any reason, you can enable and disable the service using your control panel.

What happens when emails are sent to the email contact displayed in the Whois record?
  • Consider it handled. This service replaces your email address with a unique email address. Your "[email protected]" email address receives your email, filters it for spam, and then forwards it to an email address of your choice.

Is there an email auto-change option?
  • Yes. As an additional security measure against spamming, your privacy service email address can be configured to change automatically at regular intervals. This means that if your unique email address does end up on a marketing list, the details they have are only valid for a short time.
