There is a public database of domain registrations called the WHOIS, which is accessible by anyone, anywhere in the world. Most registrars provide access to the WHOIS database and Uniregistry's is available at uniregistry.com/whois. There are also several third party WHOIS services available.
When you register a domain we collect your name, phone number, mailing address, and email for the registration in accordance with industry regulations, which proves you are the owner of the domain.
By default we will not publish your personal contact information in the WHOIS.
However, you can opt-out of privacy protection if you wish to publish all of your registrant data in the WHOIS database.
Alternatively, you may wish to opt-in to our free proxy registrant data service called *Privacy.Link™.
The option you choose determines what information is published in the WHOIS database:
- Default Privacy will remove your personal data from the WHOIS.
- Extra Privacy with Privacy.Link will replace your personal data with Uniregistry proxy credentials.
- Privacy Disabled will publish your real registrant data in the WHOIS.
