Here at Bluehost we do more than just provide powerful web hosting. We also provide extra tools to help protect our customers and their personal information. One of the best features we offer for online security is Domain Privacy.
ICANN, the organization tasked by the government with managing domain names, requires contact information for every domain owners to be publicly listed in a Whois database. This makes it easy for anyone to find and contact the owner of a domain name, including scam artists, hackers, and identity thieves. Whois lists information such as phone numbers, emails, and even home addresses.
Fortunately, by simply enabling Domain Privacy, we mask your personal info with our own. You still own your domain name, but your personal information won’t be publicly displayed. For example, the address and phone number listed will be that of Bluehost instead of your own.
To enable Domain Privacy on any of your domains, simply log into your Bluehost control panel and click the “Upgrades” tab. Keep your personal information private!
