What Is WHOIS Privacy?

International rules require that valid contact information—known as WHOIS—be available for every domain name. ID Protect cloaks your identity and provides proxy contact information in the WHOIS database.

ID Protect also reduces spam. In your cloaked WHOIS information, we provide a proxy email address that changes several times a year. We forward email sent to the proxy address, but when the proxy address changes, spam sent to the old address bounces.

GreenGeeks offers ID Protect WHOIS privacy service for $9.95 a year.
