Private Domain Name Registration Service


Domain Privacy solution for domain owners

The contact details of all registered domain names are available through a publicly-accessible database called Whois. This database is like a huge address book containing the details domain owners including name, address, phone and email.


This data can be mined by spammers who use email addresses of domain owners to spam them. Scammers can also use personal details for identity theft including scammers looking to steal or transfer the domain name.



Protect Your Identity

You can activate our Whois Protect service to safely hide all contact information from within these publicly accessible databases. It's the perfect solution for anyone who does not want their contact details available on the internet and can help protect against:-

Reduce the risk of fraudulent domain transfers Reduce the risk of fraudulent domain transfers

Reduce the risk of 'bogus' renewal invoice letters Reduce the risk of 'bogus' renewal invoice letters

The Whois Privacy Service costs just $5.35 per year to those who register or transfer their domain names to Web Wiz and the domain is still owned by you and can be managed through your Web Wiz Client Area Account, where the service can be enabled or disabled at anytime by yourself.
