Add Private Registration

Per our agreement with the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), we must add valid contact information to the Whois directory for each domain name you register. By purchasing Private Registration, you can hide your personal contact information and display proxy information instead.

Private Registration is available for many domain name extensions. However, some registries do not allow it. If the registry does not allow privacy, the Privacy tab is not available in the domain name's Upgrade section of the Domain Manager.

  1. Log in to your GoWebsite account.
  2. Next to Domains, click Manage.

How you now access the DNS manager will depend on the view of your account.
