How to register a domain name anonymously?

Nowadays, when our digital privacy is more valuable than ever, the issue of anonymous domain name registration becomes incredibly important. Whether you are an entrepreneur, a blogger or an internet enthusiast, maintaining anonymity can be important.

In this guide, we will dive into anonymous domain registration. We will introduce you to various methods, tools and strategies that will allow you to hide your data. Whether you wish to protect your identity for personal or professional reasons, we will show you how to do this effectively and securely.

How to register a domain anonymously?

Are there ways to register a domain while maintaining anonymity? In such a way so that the owner cannot be traced? Absolutely! One of the most popular solutions is to use so-called "proxy" or "privacy protection" services.

This consists of using the services of an intermediary who registers the domain on behalf of the user, keeping the user's data private. In this case, instead of the personal data of the owner, the data of this intermediary will appear in the WHOIS database. This will secure your identity as a domain owner. There are also domain service providers on the market that offer privacy protection as a standard feature. This ensures that the owner's data is not disclosed to the public, minimising the risk of misuse of personal data and providing a greater level of online privacy.

ID Protect

At Let's Domains, registering a domain privately is possible with the help of the ID Protect service. The ID Protect service is available for global domains: .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .tv, and for most new domains (e.g. .amsterdam, .bar, .business). Using the ID Protect service, domain name ownership is not necessary. The service replaces your data in the WHOIS database with the data from the service while maintaining you as the domain owner.

How to purchase the ID Protect service?

Purchase of the ID Protect service is possible when registering your domain. By adding the domain to your shopping cart, we will show you the ID Protect service as an additional purchase option. The service is active for one year for one domain. You can also purchase ID Protect for already registered domains, e.g. in the administration panel.

Why should you be interested in the ID Protect service?

Wondering why it's worth buying the ID Protect service and what it can offer your website? Find out why it is worth buying an ID Protect service and make it so that the owner of a domain cannot be traced:

  • Full control over your domain name: Purchasing ID Protect gives you the same full rights to your domain name. You can edit it, update your subscriber details or transfer it to another operator anytime.

  • Protection of your data: Most WHOIS databases do not display personal data since the introduction of GDPR. However, there are gated WHOIS databases for authorised entities. If you buy the ID Protect service, even in the gated WHOIS databases your data will not be visible. The ID Protect service is fully compliant with the domain registration agreement.

  • Dynamic alias system to protect against spam: Usually the data in the WHOIS database is public. If you purchase the ID Protect service, your real contact e-mail address will not be revealed and used to send you spam. The dynamic alias is changed regularly and forwards emails to your real mailbox. This prevents spam and ensures that you receive all really important e-mails.

The ID Protect service is a valuable investment for owners of websites, providing full control over the domain, personal data protection and effective protection against spam. With it, you retain full rights to your domain and can edit and transfer it, while protecting your data in WHOIS databases from unauthorised parties. Additionally, ID Protect offers a dynamic email alias system that reduces the risk of receiving unwanted emails, ensuring the security and privacy of your communications.
