What is Whois?

A Whois lookup will display contact and registry information for a domain name, as well as when and through which registrar the domain was registered. Private Whois, makes contact and registry information for a given domain undisclosed to the public. This service is available with the purchase of a domain name with Name.com.

Our Private Whois service will hide all registrar whois information for your domain name. We will forward all USPS Express, certified, or registered mail we receive to the registrant mailing address associated with the domain name in our database. You can choose to forward or ignore email correspondence for this domain name. With our Private Whois service, you are the owner of the domain name and remain in complete control.

If you want to add Private Whois to your domain, please see our How Do I Enable/Disable Private Whois To A Domain? FAQ
