Interested in domain privacy? Frankly, we all should be. Watch Jeff walk through the steps you should take to ensure privacy before you even buy a domain name.


Hi, my name is Jeff Gabriel. I am the co-founder and CEO of We are the leading domain brokerage on the net. We’re always writing fresh content to help viewers like yourself understand and love the same industry that all of those that work with me at have grown to love. I’ve made a list of common questions and I want to answer each of these questions in 30 seconds or less.

Can I buy privacy after I’ve registered a domain name?

Of course, you can. You can opt into privacy anytime you’d like. The thing is, with a lot of the GDPR privacy laws that have come into place in Europe and are starting to sweep across the United States, you don’t even really have to pay for it. A lot of the registrars are doing what they call redacting or taking away the information of domain registrants. Wo what I suggest you do is register the name and then quickly look at the WHOIS. Or you can ask your registrar what’s going to show after you register this domain name. Now some of the registrars will put your information out there immediately and there are companies that are very quick to grab that information and save it and then they sell it. So if you let it be public for less than a minute, you can buy all the privacy you want, but that information is now part of history.
