Getting Started with Private Registrations

Article Rating: 3 / 5 Votes: 146

How Does Private Registration Work

Private Registration populates the public WHOIS listing for your domain name registration with alternate contact information:

  • Email Address – To help protect you from people who “mine” and sell the information in the WHOIS database the email address listed in WHOIS will change every 10 days. Email messages received at this address will be filtered for spam and forwarded to your designated email account.


  • Postal Address – To stop junk mail and unwanted persons from finding your home, the postal address displayed in your WHOIS listing will be a PO Box address in care of Network Solutions. Legal and other important notices received via Certified Mail® or Express Mail® will be forwarded to the Account Holder address of record.


  • Phone Number – To prevent telemarketers from harassing you, the phone number listed will be answered by Network Solutions® who will instruct the caller how to contact you via the email address or PO Box listed in WHOIS.
