Why Every Domain Needs ID Protect
In America alone, there are an estimated 9 million cases of identity theft each year¹ and 3 trillion² spam emails sent each year. Spammers and thieves can get your information through your domain name’s public record. ID Protect keeps your information safe by privatizing your domain’s entry in public records.

Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve compiled a list of answers to common questions.
What is ID Protect?
ID Protect also reduces spam. In your cloaked Whois information, we provide a proxy email address that changes several times a year. We forward email sent to the proxy address, but when the proxy address changes, spam sent to the old address bounces.
How does ID Protect help reduce spam?
Why is my personal information available when I purchase a domain name?
Can ID Protect be automatically added to all eligible future domain name registrations?
Can I add ID Protect to a domain name that is registered elsewhere?
How do I turn off ID Protect if my domain has expired?
Why can’t I use ID Protect with my .us name?
Which TLDs allow ID Protect?
What if someone sends something to the Whois Privacy Protection Service postal address
What personal information is displayed in domain name Whois, and how do people find it?
ID Protect provides proxy information instead of your personal contact information. Parties who want to contact you use the proxy information, and we forward to you.
What if I need to prove ownership of domain?
To prove ownership of your domain, temporarily disable ID Protect and then ask the verifying party to confirm whois registration details.
To disable ID Protect, log in and click “My Account”. Click “Registered Domains”. Click the domain for which you want to disable ID Protect. Click “Contact Information”. Click “Edit your ID Protect settings”. Select “Unprotected” and click “save changes”.
Once the ownership verification is complete, you can turn the ID Protect service back on through your domain control panel.
How do I use the domain checker?
To see whether your preferred domain name is already taken, just type it into the search box.You may then follow the procedures to buy the domain, register it, and obtain a hosting plan to go with it.
If I’m transferring a domain to Zegta, and it has privacy protection, do I need to turn the privacy protection off to transfer?
If the privacy protection service at your other registrar does not provide email forwarding, the service must be disabled so that you can respond to transfer confirmation emails.
If I am transferring my domain away from Zegta, do I need to turn off ID Protect in order to receive the transfer confirmation emails?
No, our ID Protect service will forward to the email address associated with the domain name.
