What is Protected Registration?
Protected Registration is a premium service you can apply to many of the domain names you purchase or already registered with us. The service helps ensure that you retain registration of your domain name, regardless of expiration dates or attempts to transfer. Domain names with protected registration will automatically renew. The renewal settings cannot be changed and the service cannot be canceled without the listed registrant submitting documentation.
With Protected Registration, you receive:
- Domain Name Ownership Protection — Protects you from losing your domain name if you forget to renew it, or if we can't charge your credit card. If you fail to renew your domain name, we hold it for up to one year. During that time, your domain name is in an inactive, protected status with a parked page. We do not keep your related services running if your domain name renewal lapses. To rescue the domain name during the protected status period, you must pay any renewal fees for your domain name and Protected Registration.
- Deadbolt Transfer Protection — Puts your domain name on lockdown, making it impossible for any inadvertent, accidental, or malicious transfer. Unlike regular domain name locking, which occurs at the registry level, Deadbolt Transfer Protection offers an even higher level of security — we lock your domain name in your account.
- Ownership Protection Reports — Annual domain name status report and email updates help you keep track of vital domain name information.
- Private Registration — Typically when you register a domain name, your contact information is publicly available. Private Registration shields your personal information from public view. You control who reaches you and when.
- Business Registration — Business Registration offers you a complete, online advertising listing that is instantly available to everyone who searches for your domain name in the Whois database.
NOTE: Before you purchase Protected Registration, ensure that the registrant contact for your domain name has a valid email address in the Whois database. You must have access to the registrant email address to make future changes to your domain name or Protected Registration service. For more information, see Updating Your Domain Name Contact Information.
Protected Registration is not available for some domain names. These are primarily country-code extensions (ccTLDs). See Adding Deluxe or Protected Registration to Your Domain Names for information on adding Protected Registration to your domain name.
To remove and/or cancel Protected Registration for your domain name, see Canceling Protected Registration for more information.
What is the difference between public and private domain name registration?
Per our registrar agreement with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact and registrant information listed for your domain name must be made public. Using false information is a violation and can lead to the termination of your domain name registration.
We understand most people do not want their personal contact information (name, address, email address, and phone number) made public in the Whois database. That’s why we have offered Private Registration services through an affiliate company, Domains By Proxy® (DBP), since 2002.
When you purchase DBP Private Registration services, the Whois database lists DBP's name, mailing address, and phone number instead of your personal contact information.
DBP also creates a private unique email address for your domain name — you decide to have any arriving email forwarded, filtered for spam, or not forwarded at all.
Although DBP is listed as the registrant of your domain name on the Whois database, you retain FULL CONTROL over your domain name. You can:
- Cancel, sell, or renew your domain name
- Control the content for your website
- Set the nameservers for your domain name
- Update your underlying domain name contact information
- Resolve any and all disputes involving your domain name
Private Registration provides a variety of benefits! It helps you:
- Protect your identity
- Stop domain name-related spam
- Thwart harassers and stalkers
- End data mining
- Maintain personal and family privacy
- Prevent your domain from being hijacked
- Shield legitimate entrepreneurial business endeavors
- Voice political and other First Amendment speech
DBP does not allow you to use its services for spamming, violating the law, or engaging in morally objectionable activities. Violating these policies will result in service cancellation.
