Shield your personal data

Did you know that when you register a domain name your personal details, like your name and address, are sent onto the domain registries and may be accessed by the governing body and sub-contractors?

This personal data will be available via a gated or tiered access system – which means only groups with a "legitimate interests" should be able to see the data (however "legitimate interests" is open to interpretation).

These groups may include (and are not limited to) law enforcement agencies, intellectual property investigators (acting on behalf of corporations), and other third parties with "legitimate interests".

With domain privacy protector the domain registries don't get your personal details, they get the privacy protector details instead.


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 masking your personal details within the Registration Directory Service (RDS). When any group or agency searches your domain, they’ll see our privacy protector details – not your name, address, email 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 illustration of how domain privcy works:

Frequently asked questions about our domain privacy

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

There is no Registration Directory Service (RDS) 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.
