How to register a private domain

Registering a private domain is easy. Simply enable the ‘domain privacy’ option on the registration form once you have chosen your domain name.

What about .uk names?

The .uk domain registry, Nominet UK, provides a similar service known as “Whois Opt-out”. This service is only available to personal domain names, rather than business registrants and this will allow you to omit your address from the online Whois. When purchasing a new domain names from Your Name Here,  the Whois Opt-out can be enabled the same way, by clicking on the ‘domain privacy’ box.
