Hiding Your Personal Details on a Domain (Whois Privacy)

When a domain is registered, the WHOIS database shows the names and addresses of .uk domain registrants. However, it does not show any other personal information such as email addresses or telephone numbers.

The WHOIS database is available for everyone to view and some people may wish to opt out of having their address shown and consequently .uk WHOIS privacy options are available to allow private individuals to opt-out.

Domain privacy is provided when a new domain is being purchased or this can be added later.


Purchasing a new domain with Domain Privacy

The first step is to log into your 'Client Area'. Enter your email address and password into the respective login boxes then select 'Login'.

alt text

Select 'Domains' from the top menu followed by 'Register a New Domain'.

alt text

Enter in your new domain name and choose the domain extension from the drop down menu (only .uk domains can have whois optout).

alt text

Select 'Search' to see whether the domain is available to register.

alt text

If the domain that you've chosen is available, you should see confirmation about this.

alt text

Choose how long you'd like to register the domain for and continue further down.


You will find that the system will provide any other domains that you might be interested in that are similar to what you have selected. If any are of interest, tick that respective option and choose how long you'd like to register that for.

alt text

Choose 'Continue' to move forward.


Near the top, enter the 'Registrant Name' and then tick the 'WHOIS Opt-out' option. This will mean that the name will be shown when a WHOIS request is made on the domain but no other details will be shown.

alt text

Configure the nameservers for the new domain. By default, the nameservers for the site's hosting network will be shown. If you want to use custom nameservers, please change these accordingly.

alt text

Choose 'Continue' to proceed.


The details of your order at this point will be confirmed on screen by showing the items in your cart. If you are happy to continue, scroll further down.

alt text

Review your registrant information and then select your 'Payment Method'.

alt text

To complete, select 'Checkout' to register the new domain.

Please note - once the registration of the new domain is complete, you will be able to manage it via the 'Domains' -> 'My Domains' section of the Client Area. Please allow up to 24 hours for the nameservers to update before accessing the new domain via your web browser.


Purchasing Domain Privacy for an Existing Domain

To add domain privacy to an existing domain that you have on your account, order the new service as follows.

Log into your 'Client Area'. Enter your email address and password into the respective login boxes then select 'Login'.

alt text

Select from the top navigation menu 'Services' followed by 'Order New Services'.

alt text

Select to expand the product options menu and choose 'Other'.

alt text

On the 'Domain Privacy' product, choose 'Order Now'.

alt text

To add to an existing domain, choose the 'Keep domain with current registrar and update Nameservers / DNS'.

alt text

Type in your existing domain and extension into the respective boxes.

alt text

Review the new product and sanity check the domain entered is correct.

alt text

Choose your preferred 'Payment Method' and complete the process by selecting 'Checkout'.
