Stop your personal details falling into the wrong hands

Did you know that when you register a domain name your personal details, like your name and address, are then listed on the publically accessible WHOIS database?

ICANN, the international governing body for domain names, requires these personal details to be publicly listed for every single domain name registered. This information not only allows the public to contact domain owners about legitimate issues, but also allows for rapid resolution of technical problems such as domain ownership disputes, consumer protection and trademark issues.

Sadly, like most things online today, this database is frequently been the target of online fraudsters and spammers hunting for email addresses to send junk to. But never fear, our domain privacy protector stops them in their tracks.


How much does domain privacy cost?

Domain privacy protector is free for the initial domain registration term. So whether you register a domain for one, two, five, or ten years, your domain privacy protector service will be free for the same length of time.

Then after that domain privacy costs £4.95 a year to renew. However, you are under no obligation to renew your domain privacy service.

Domain privacy the LCN way…

Domain privacy protector works by stopping your personal details from being displayed within the WHOIS database. When anyone searches your domain, they’ll see our privacy protector details – not your name, address and phone number.

Your details remain on-file as the legal domain name owner, and any legitimate enquiries sent to the domain privacy protector address are forwarded on to you.

Here’s an example of how your contact information would look when domain privacy protector does its thing.

Frequently asked questions about our domain privacy

Why can’t I add domain privacy to my .eu domain?

There is no WHOIS opt-out available for .eu domains as the registry (EURID) does not allow it. However, if you register your .eu domain as a private individual, the only publicly accessible data would be your email address. If you register your .eu domain as an organisation, your full details such as name, address and phone number would be publicly accessible.

For further details on how domain privacy works for all domains, check out our support guide.
