WHOIS Privacy

Protect your identity from hackers and spammers for free with NameSilo!

According to ICANN regulations, every domain registrar, including NameSilo, is required to maintain a publicly accessible database called "WHOIS" containing the contact information for all registered domain names. Unfortunately, WHOIS has become a prime target for hackers and spammers looking to data mine names, email addresses, phone numbers and other sensitive information.

We are proud to offer FREE WHOIS Privacy Protection for all of our domain holders without limitation!

Unlike many of our competitors who offer Free WHOIS Privacy for a limited time, we provide WHOIS Privacy for free at all times, no exceptions!

Partnering with, we are able to offer complete protection for your information while complying with ICANN requirements.

Opting to make your domain registrations private will in no way impact your ownership or any other functionality. The only change will be for people who access the WHOIS database. Instead of seeing your personal data, all contact information will be replaced with the defaults. An example of this change is illustrated below:

Springfield Power Plant
Homer J. Simpson
742 Evergreen Terrace
Springfield, ST 55555
+1 999 555-1212
Domain Administrator
1928 E. Highland Ave. Ste F104
PMB# 255
Phoenix, AZ 85012
+1 347 871-7726

In the event that someone does a WHOIS look up to contact you, they will be directed to the web site where they will be able to submit a form which will automatically be forwarded to the email account you have on file here at NameSilo.

All private domains in your account will be given a unique email address Any mail sent to that email address will be forwarded to the email address you have listed to receive WHOIS Privacy emails on the account maintenance page in your account. We also routinely change the email address for your private domains as a way to combat unsolicited mail.
