If you are a business or individual and would like to remove your details from the WHOIS database, domain privacy is for you.
You can purchase domain privacy for none .uk domains. For .uk domains (.uk, .co.uk, .org.uk etc), if you are an individual and not a business, you can set up domain privacy via your control panel free of charge. Unfortunately,.com, .net, .org, .info, .biz or .name businesses with a .uk domain are unable to protect their contact details in this way. This is a rule stipulated by Nominet, the UK leading domain registry authority.
For £9.61 per year, your WHOIS details will be and replaced by generic information. An email address @identity-protect.org will be specified on the WHOIS details. Any potential customers etc can use this address to send an email which will then be forwarded to you. This means that all of your details are removed from the WHOIS but messages can still get through to you if a genuine customer wants to contact you.
If you have a domain name with any one of the following extensions, you can purchase domain privacy: .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz or .name.
