What is Privacy Protection?


When you register a domain name with Domain india, the Whois of your domain name lists your personal information (such as Name, Company Name, Address, Telephone Number, Email Address) as Contact Details for that domain name. This information becomes available to anyone who performs a Whois lookup of your domain name.

Your personal information is therefore at risk from being manipulated by data miners, who can then target you via junk email, prank telephone calls, postal messages, fax messages, etc..

Using Domain india's Privacy Protection service, you can immediately put a stop to such abuse. When you enable this service for your domain name, we replace your Contact Details in the Whois information with our generic contact details, thus, masking your personal contact details.


This feature is not available for the following domain name extensions:

  • On account of restrictions imposed by the Registry Operator:
    • .US
    • .IN (including .CO.IN, .NET.IN, .ORG.IN, .GEN.IN, .FIRM.IN, .IND.IN)
    • .EU
    • .UK
    • .ASIA
