What is "Contact Privacy"
This service is available for a yearly fee on all HIS-registered domain names.
Contact Privacy hides the identity of a Registrant when a user does a WHOIS lookup on that Registrant’s domain.
The benefit of having Contact Privacy is that the Registrant’s identity, including home address, phone number, and email address, is shielded from spammers, identity thieves, scammers, and other undesirables. When Registrants enable the Contact Privacy service, masked WHOIS contact information appears in the public WHOIS database.
Instead of displaying the domain owner's email address, the WHOIS lookup displays firstname.lastname@example.org. Messages sent to this email address are forwarded by contactprivacy.com to the email address that is associated with the domain name.
