Don’t want your private information visible to hackers and spammers? We’ve got you covered!
Whois is a publicly searchable database of domain registration information. You can think about Whois as the yellow pages for domain names. Learn more on our knowledge base article!
Porkbun is happy to offer you Whois Privacy via Private by Design, LLC. Private by Design protects you from public enquiries by hiding your Whois contact information (Name, Phone Number, Business Name, and Address). You'll still receive any important emails, phone messages, and physical correspondence related to your domain name; it'll just be forwarded to you through Private by Design. That way, all your personal information will remain private! WHOIS Privacy is automatically applied to every domain that supports it.
Some TLDs do not support WHOIS privacy due to registry level restrictions. Those TLDs are: gg, co.gg, net.gg, org.gg, je, co.je, net.je, org.je, bh, de, us, am, nyc, law, abogado, uk, co.uk, org.uk, me.uk, eu, in, co.in, net.in, org.in, firm.in, gen.in, ind.in, nrw
