Secure your Domain Privacy

All major registries, as well as and IDPS GmbH, require by their policies and Terms&Conditions, that registrants provide accurate, complete and current personal data, that is made publicly available on the internet by the WHOIS service. This WHOIS service is available to everyone, and usually includes the name, street address and email addresses of the registrant. The use of incorrect, incomplete or fake data is a violation of the registration agreement of the related registry and IDPS GmbH, and may lead to the deletion of the related domain name (please also see 5.c/11.d of T&C).

To protect a registrant from abuse of his data, through IDPS GmbH provides privacy protection services, effectively shielding his information and keeping his data confidential. By using these services, the registrant is represented by alternate contact data provided by IDPS GmbH, while remaining compliant to the registration policies. The registrant's own data will still be maintained and escrowed by, to secure the registrant's ownership of the domain, and ensure the compliance to ICANN's and registry's policies.

By the use of these services, the registrant is protected against most common forms of abuse like outlined below.
