Update to Free Domain Privacy on July 7th!

We have an update to the free Basic Domain Name Privacy Protection coming on July 7th!

In order to help keep competitive, we are updating the free privacy that comes with domains. Today, when you search for and purchases a domain, you will get basic privacy for free. The current free domain name privacy redacts customer information from our WHOIS. This means that other WHOIS directories could have their personal registrant information showing. Starting on the 7th July 2022, all new purchases of domains, when applicable, we will replace your personal details with anonymized information in the public WHOIS registry. Due to some registry restrictions, some domains are not eligible for this privacy protection.

As well as new purchases getting this starting on the 7th, we will be replacing current customers personal information in WHOIS directories with the anonymized information over the next few weeks.

You do not have to take any particular action unless you advertise about domain name privacy individually as we will be updating the domain purchase path and domain search results page.
