Domain Registry ends Free whois privacy
- Monday, 29th September, 2014
Due to the forthcoming change in ICANN’s policy, we have just been informed that the costs of providing the Privacy Protect service will be no longer free. The cost will be $3.50 per year for gTLDs that can have the service enabled.
The following information determines when the charge will apply :
Domain has already enabled PP service protection BEFORE 1200BST on Monday 6th October 2014.
This will remain free until either:
A) Service is disabled, on being re-enabled a charge will occur
B) Domain renewal with the PP service still enabled, charge will occur
Domain has PP service protection disabled after 1200 BST on Monday 6th October 2014:
A) Enabling the service will result in a charge.
Once the PP service has been charged, turning on or off the service throughout the term of the PP service period (part year (if enabled in middle of domain year), year or how many years that have been requested - UNTIL renewal of domain) can be completed at no charge.
Lastly, where the PP service has been requested, any new Registration / Transfer in or Renewal from 1200 BST, Monday 6th October 2014 will result in a charge.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the sales deparment.
