Enabling Privacy Proxy on a domain name

A full explanation of Privacy Proxy services and requirements for domain name owners to display accurate information on public WHOIS servers is provided in this article.

To protect your domain name ownership information from public display on WHOIS records simply login to your control panel and click on any domain (under the ‘Domains’ menu item).

At the top of the domain configuration screen is an option to set ‘Privacy proxy’ to ‘Active’ or ‘Inactive’

Click on the edit button and choose ‘Active’ to hide your private information from public WHOIS records, and choose ‘Inactive’ to display your domain name ownership and management information.

Note: Active privacy proxy records are replaced by registrar or reseller information by default.  Note also, that statutory laws require registrars to reveal domain name ownership information to anyone making a reasonable request, such as law enforcement and brand protection organisations, etc but strictly not for marketing or resale purposes.
