When you register a domain with any registrar, regulations require your personal information to be automatically entered into a public directory often used by hackers and spammers to compile mailing lists and steal domains. ApyHost offers two privacy options to keep your personal details safely hidden.

We will secure & protect your personal information from domain identity fraudsters.

Why Privacy Protection?

Your identity is nobody’s business but ours.

ApyHost’s privacy partner, Domains by Proxy®, protects you from hackers, hijackers, and data miners by replacing your name, address and other details in the public WHOIS directory with its business address and phone number. You retain complete control of the domain, including the rights to sell, renew, cancel or transfer it.

Hijackers beware.
Thieves who hijack websites hosted on your domain tend to use them to carry out scams, deliver spam and spread malware. Both Privacy and Privacy & Business Protection safely hide the personal information hackers need to take control of your domain.

Why Privacy & Business Protection?

Don’t lose what's yours.

Losing your domain can be devastating. Privacy & Business Protection uses Deadbolt Protection to put your domain on lockdown, making inadvertent, accidental or malicious transfers impossible. Plus, it gives you one year to rescue your site, as long as you pay for the renewal within that time.

Keep spammers away.

Rather than having your personal email address out there for the world to see, Privacy & Business Protection includes a private email address that you can forward to another account, filter or block completely. The only messages you’ll have to see are the ones you want.

Automatic online protection.

Privacy and Business Protection is like having an online security guard. It automatically scans for malware and uses continuous security monitoring to tackle new threats. It also monitors search engine blacklists to protect your domain reputation.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions about Apyhost Domain Privacy.

What's in the WHOIS directory?

The WHOIS directory is a searchable list of every single domain name registered in the world, including the names, addresses and other details of the people who own them. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires accredited registrars to publish this information in the WHOIS listing as soon as the domain is registered.

So everyone can see my information?

The short answer is yes. The name, address and phone number you submit when you register your domain is publicly accessible by anyone at any time. This may be good news if you have a domain name you’d like to sell. Or it may be bad news if your name and contact information are collected by a spammer, hacker or cyber-criminal.

What about my business? I want people to find me.

Privacy and Business Protection includes a “virtual business card” designed to drive traffic to your website and increase the reach of your existing efforts without sacrificing your privacy.

How does Privacy Protection work?

Instead of displaying your personal information in the WHOIS database for all to see, our partner Domains By Proxy will replace it with its own. The domain will belong to you – except now, you and Domains By Proxy® will be the only ones who know it.

What are the benefits of Privacy Protection?

Privacy Protection through Domains By Proxy gives you full control over your domain names while protecting you from identity theft, domain-related spam, and domain name hijacking. Domains By Proxy even creates a private and unique email address for each domain name. You get to decide if you want the email forwarded to you, filtered, or completely blocked.

What is Privacy & Business Protection?

Privacy & Business Protection includes all the features of Privacy Protection, plus Domain Ownership Protection and Website Security Basic. It protects your personal details while also providing continuous monitoring and protection. You will also receive email updates and an annual domain name status report help you keep track of vital domain name information. NOTE: Before you purchase Privacy & Business Protection, make sure the Registrant contact for your domain name includes a valid email address. You must have access to the registrant email address to make future changes to your domain name or Privacy & Business Protection service.
