When you buy a domain, regardless of where you buy it, your contact details are published publicly on the web in the WHOIS database. If your domain name grabs the attention of spammers, this means you’ll get a ton of junk email, calls, and mail. Domain privacy displays a standardised set of details to prevent this from happening and ensures that the domain registry doesn’t disable your domain for incorrect contact details.
You don’t need to buy domain privacy if your domain ends in .uk and you’re a non-trading individual as Nominet (the UK domains registry) provides it free of charge.
When you’ve purchased your chosen domain name, you'll be asked to verify it via email by our domain partner, Stack. After clicking through, you'll see an option on the form to prevent data sharing.
