What is ID Protect?

ID Protect helps to stop spam and marketers



Even if you don’t mind this type of information being public, anyone—including mail, email, and telephone marketers—can use WHOIS records to pester domain registrants with unwanted solicitations. Fortunately, ID Protect shields your personal information from prying eyes.

When your domain is covered by ID Protect, we replace the personal identifying information in your Whois record with generic contact information. No third-party marketers will be able to see your information, so no junk mail or phone calls will come directly to you as a result of the information we collect.

ID Protect must be added to each domain you register. While many top-level domains support ID Protect, not all do. When you go to check out a domain, add ID Protect to the domain and we’ll let you know if that domain is eligible for the service. You can also add ID Protect to domains you’ve already registered. 

Don’t risk unwanted attention. Shield your personal information by adding ID Protect to your domain today.
