How do I order domain privacy?

By using our Domain Privacy service, we'll list the generic company ContactPrivacy.com for your domain name.

This ensures that your confidential information is not available online. Our Domain Privacy service comes with free e-mail forwarding of the protected e-mail address to an e-mail of your choice, so you'll continue to receive any domain notifications.

If you're an individual with your own .uk or .co.uk domain name that is not for business use then you can hide your personal details for free.

You can add domain privacy when you checkout. Please note, .UK Nominet Opt-Out is only available to individuals.

If a .uk domain is registered as a UK Sole Trader, you won’t be able to get free Nominet Opt-Out.

.com and other domains

To order domain privacy if you have an existing .com domain:

.uk domains

If you have an existing .uk domain then you can opt-out of WHOIS by:

  • Logging in to My20i
  • Go to Manage Domains
  • Locate the domain name and select Manage
  • Select Domain Privacy and check the Opt-Out of WHOIS? box.

To reiterate: .uk Nominet opt-out is only available to Individuals, not businesses.
