What is Domain Privacy?

Aug 31, 2022

Domain Privacy is a Whois protection service provided by the Withheld for Privacy company. It prevents people from seeing your name, address, phone number, and email when they do a Whois search on your domain. It puts its address information to the public Whois instead of yours to protect you from potential spam and even identity theft.
How does Domain Privacy work?

When you enable the Domain Privacy service for a domain, it puts the Withheldforprivacy.com protected information to the public instead of your contact details to protect you from potential spam and even identity theft.

Your personal email address will be replaced with a unique Withheldforprivacy.com one (e.g., 35180ba032214a9387fe517f46b6037d.protect@withheldforprivacy.com), and every email sent to this email address will be forwarded to your Registered email address.

To enhance online presence privacy, you also have an option to schedule the change of your Withheldforprivacy.com email address every few days. This should provide you with additional protection from spam as mail harvested from Whois becomes invalid in a few days.
