Add Private Registration

Per our agreement with ICANN, we must add valid contact information to the WHOIS directory for each domain you register. By purchasing Private Registration, you can hide your personal contact information and display proxy information instead.

Some registries don't allow Private Registration. If that's the case for your domain, the option to add privacy won't show up in your Domain Manager.

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

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

It can take 24 to 48 hours for the information to display in the Whois database.

To add Private Registration to an expired domain name you won through GoDaddy Auctions®, see Purchasing Domain Names You Won.
