WHOIS Privacy Service
Prevent spam, scams, and identity theft! Protect your personal information with WHOIS Privacy!
Every time you register a domain name, your name, address and phone number are entered into a public database that can be viewed and used by anyone. This exposes your personal information to spammers, telemarketers and other undesired third parties.

Protect your personal information.

Rackshare's WHOIS Privacy service allows you to retain your domain name without having to expose your personal information to the public. Here's how it works:

  • Your domain registration information, including the Administrative, Billing and Technical contacts are masked with generic information within public WHOIS databases. You still retain full ownership and control of your domain name.
  • Requests to view your domain's contact information are filtered and forwarded to you.
  • You decide whether to respond.

WHOIS Privacy Service is immediately available for .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .cc and .tv domain names (this service is not available for .uk or .us domains). Purchase WHOIS Privacy for your domain name(s) today, and protect your private information!

Enable WHOIS Privacy for just $4/year when you register a new domain name or renew an existing domain.

Getting Started with WHOIS Privacy

  1. When WHOIS Privacy is purchased for a domain name, a confirmation email is sent to the domain's Admin Contact. The contact has 10 days to confirm the purchase, or the service will not be enabled.
  2. Once confirmed, the domain's information is changed to that of the Tucows WHOIS Privacy Service (see Sample WHOIS Record Information below).
  3. All inquiries for the WHOIS information of a protected domain that are sent via telephone or email are directed to visit a web-based request form. Inquiries sent by registered mail are scanned by Tucows, then forwarded to the Registrant via email.
  4. Requests are then sent to the Registrant, who is free to respond to or ignore the inquiry.

Sample WHOIS Record Information

The WHOIS record for each domain name protected by the WHOIS Privacy Service will contain the following information, as mandated by ICANN. The service uses the mailing address of our Tucows registrar, as an administrative address is required.
