Domain Privacy

Modified on Tue, 10 Jan 2023 at 09:06 AM

The Internet Coalition for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires that contact information for the owner of a domain be made publicly available through the WHOIS record. This information includes the owner's name, address, and telephone number.

That policy enables anyone, including spammers and direct marketers, to search examine personal information about domain owners.

When our customers add privacy protection to their domain, we will replace the customer's personal information with generic Webhero information.



The Whois Privacy Service hides the contact details of the actual owner from appearing in the Whois lookup for the domain name.


(1) Registrant acknowledges and agrees that the contact information being displayed in the Whois of a privacy protected domain will be those designated by the

(2) Registrant agrees that we cannot guarantee delivery of messages to either the Registrant, Administrative, Billing, Technical Contact, or Customer of a privacy protected domain, and that messages may not be delivered in time or at all. Webhero disclaims any and all liability associated with non-delivery of any messages relating to the domain and this service.

(3) Registrant understands that the Whois privacy service is only available for certain TLDs.

(4) Irrespective of whether Whois Privacy is enabled or not, Registrants are required to fulfill their obligations of providing true and accurate contact information.

(5) Registrant understands and acknowledges that Webhero in its sole discretion can discontinue providing Whois privacy services for the domain for any reason, including but not limited to:

(a) if Webhero receives any abuse complaint for the privacy protected domain name, or

(b) pursuant to any applicable laws, government rules or requirements, requests of law enforcement agency, or

(c) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name, or

(d) for any other reason that Webhero in its sole discretion deems appropriate to switch off the Whois privacy services.
