WhoisGuard by Sri Lanka Hosting is a service that offers privacy protection for your domain, keeping your sensitive data safe. Because your data is as important to us as it is to you.
When you register a domain, ICANN requires registrars to provide them with your contact information (such as name, email, address, and phone number). This is then added to the Whois database. This database lists the owners of every domain name online, and it can be searched by anyone on the Internet.
WhoisGuard hides this information from spammers, marketing firms, and online fraudsters. Instead, the Whois database will display generic WhoisGuard contact information. It's the best global domain privacy option you'll find anywhere — guaranteed. Because at SriLanka Hosting, we care about your privacy protection.
WhoisGuard contact information is displayed in the publicly-accessible Whois database, taking the place of your name, postal address, phone number, and fax number. Your personal information remains private. This means you're safe from telemarketers, unsolicited phone calls, junk mail and identity theft.
WhoisGuard replaces your email address in the Whois database with a unique [email protected] address. Every email sent to this address is filtered and then forwarded to an email address of your choice, drastically reducing the amount of spam in your inbox, while ensuring you receive legitimate communication.
When you register an eligible new domain name or transfer an existing eligible domain to Namecheap, you'll receive WhoisGuard privacy protection absolutely FREE for as long as you keep your domain with Namecheap.
