How to hide your details from the public WHOIS database

The WHOIS database is a public register of domain names, their owners and other key details.

To help protect your personal details from marketing companies LCN provides free Domain Privacy on all gTLD (except .eu) for their initial registration term. Your details will remain on file as the legal domain owner and any enquiries for your domain will be forwarded on to you. You can read more on why domain privacy is important here.

Setting up Domain Privacy Protection on an existing LCN domain name is simple, just follow the guide below.

Let’s get started…

  1. Log in to your LCN account.
  2. Click on Domains.
  3. Click Domain Privacy in the top left-hand corner.
  4. Domains without privacy will be listed at the top. Select the ones you would like to add privacy to.
  5. Click ADD TO BASKET.
  6. Complete the checkout process.


That’s it! You’ve successfully setup domain privacy.

Please note: WHOIS lookups for .EU domains do not return any registrant data. You're directed to a web-based WHOIS on the registry website. If you have filled out the organisation field, the full registrant details will be displayed otherwise only the registrant email address is displayed.
