Domain Privacy for .us Domains

Summary

Due to US Registry policies we are not able to offer Domain Privacy for .us Domain Names. As of August 1, 2008, we removed the privacy on all of the domain names ending in .us.

Whois Privacy and .us Domain Names

The WHOIS database shows my personal information for my .us domain names. How do I get privacy for the .us domain?

The .US Registry policy for Registrars states the following:

    "No registrar, nor any of its resellers, affiliates, partners and/or contractors shall be permitted to offer anonymous or proxy domain name registration services which prevent the Registry from having and displaying the true and accurate data elements contained in Section 3.3 for any Registered Name."

For full information regarding the requirements for registrants of .us domain names, please visit this link:
