When registering a domain, a buyer’s information is automatically compiled into a database called WHOIS. This database acts as an internet phone book allowing any individual to research web address holders worldwide. Personal information such as phone number, email address, and physical address is accessible to anyone with an internet connection.
UK2 offers a Domain Privacy service to our clients to keep sensitive information under lock and key. While it is necessary for UK2 to have your personal information, we can keep your contact details out of the hands of spammers, squatters, and other bad guys looking to exploit the WHOIS directory. Just be sure to add Domain Privacy to your shopping cart when purchasing your domain and we will take care of the rest. Already have an unprotected domain? No problem! You can add Domain Privacy through your control panel.
If you’re new to websites, you might not know that, when you register a new web address, your contact details are added to a database called WhoIs. A bit like the phone book for web address owners, it’s accessible by the world and its wife.
Unfortunately, this means that the bad guys of the Word Wide Web have access to it, too. Email spammers can sometimes use it to compile recipient lists, and criminals take advantage of it to get away with domain name fraud.
The good news is, you can get extra security through UK2. Add Domain Privacy to your shopping cart when you buy your web address and we’ll make sure your contact details cannot be seen on WhoIs. Instead, we’ll replace your details with generic ones.
If you’ve already got an unprotected domain name, you can add Domain Privacy through your CHI control panel in just a few clicks.
Thanks to our next-generation control panel, you can do things like rebooting and re-imaging without having to call the help desk for assistance.
Domain Privacy costs just £4.95 for an entire year.
You still have full control of your domain with Domain Privacy. You can cancel, sell or transfer your domain the same way as before.

"9pm on Sunday evening, realised that I hadn't renewed my hosting service. 10 minutes of help from your live chat support and my websites are up and running again. As a company offering 24 hour emergency electrical/locksmith services most of our work comes from the websites, so getting this fixed without having to wait for Monday morning was very important."Nick Lane, Kent Security and Electrical

"This is a completely honest review. These days it's hard to come across good customer service, but somehow UK2 have actually bucked the trend and provide good, quick and informative replies and help that clearly shows they employ real people with knowledge and skills, rather than just a list of scripted replies, which is such a common occurrence these days! Today I was helped by Jason Barnes from Tech Support. Jason, thank you!"Dave Bulow, DaveBulow Photograpahy
