How does Whois-privacy work?

With most domain name registrations, private information (like name, phone number, address and e-mail address) are shown in the publicly available Whois. In order for that information to be kept private, we replace it with our information. The main reason for Whois privacy is to prevent unethical people from harvesting ownerinformation for spamming activities. The actual owner information is however kept in our private database.

Do you become the owner of the domain name?

No. Our information is merely listed in the Whois as a proxy towards the actual owner.

What if a domain name with your contact information is engaging in illegal activities?

If that is the case, do let us know! We don't allow this and will take action against it. If needed and under the appropriate circumstances, we will reveal the actual owner information to for example law enforcement.
