Secure your Domain Privacy with our new Whois Privacy Feature

Most registries, as well as registrars like Joker.com, require by their policies and Terms & Conditions, that registrants provide accurate, complete and current personal data, that is made publicly available on the internet by the WHOIS service. This is also a binding requirement set by ICANN.

This WHOIS service is available to everyone, and usually includes the name, street address and email addresses of the registrant. The use of incorrect, incomplete or fake data is a violation of the registration agreement of the related registry and EIS AG, and may lead to the deletion of the related domain name (please also see 5.c/11.d of Joker.com T&C).

To protect a registrant from abuse of his data, proxy-privacy.com through EIS AG provides privacy protection services, effectively shielding his information and keeping his data confidential. By using these services, the registrant is represented by alternate contact data provided by EIS AG, while remaining compliant to the registration policies.
The registrant’s own data will still be maintained and escrowed by Joker.com, to secure the registrant’s ownership of the domain, and to ensure the compliance to ICANN’s and registry’s policies.

Here is an example of what privacy service means to a domain name’s public Whois output:

Pricing Examples

Standard prices for WHOIS privacy are: $1.49/year for privacy basic (address is hidden, but not the registrant’s name) and $2.49/year for privacy pro (all of the registrant’s data is hidden).
When privacy services are purchased for already existing domain names, either as an option during renewal of a domain, or as an additional option for an existing domain name, the term of the privacy service will automatically be synchronized with the term of the domain name. Terms of less than 6 months will be rounded down, above this will be rounded up and charged as an additional year.
Let’s say a .com domain of you has a remaining term of 5 months, and you want to transfer it to Joker.com, and you choose privacy basic for the transfer.
This would result into

mandatory 1 year renewal with transfer: USD 13.70
optional 1 year privacy basic service: USD 1.49
result – 1 year additional domain term, and 17 months of privacy USD 15.19

See more examples in our FAQ

To order Domain Privacy just order a domain like you normally would and click add privacy in your shopping cart. You can then choose basic or pro. To add privacy to your existing domains, just log into your Joker.com-account and modify a domain. There you can purchase privacy basic or privacy pro.
