Best Domain Registrars for FREE Whois Privacy

When you register a domain with any registrar, you can opt to go for whois privacy, which mainly helps protect your personal details from unscrupulous spammers. Unfortunately many registrars charge an extra fee for this service, and things can quickly add up if you have many domains. The good news is that there are some excellent registrars which do provide FREE whois privacy, and we're listing them for your convenience here.

    1. Namebright only offers privacy protection free for the 1st year: Privacy Protection is free for the first year of registration. Regular privacy charges, which are $2.95 per year, will apply in subsequent years unless you remove privacy protection from the domain within the first 365 days.

  1. Jean, I’d like to point out WebberZone.net (also .com) which offers free Privacy Protection and very competitive prices for Domains.

  2. Hover also offers free Whois protection and super duper support.
    They’re likely more expensive, but if I have an issue I can call them and a human answers after the second or third ring.

    1. Yes, NameSilo has excellent customer support and answers their phones as well… plus their prices are better and their interface is much cleaner – especially if you have a lot of domains.

    2. Does Hover go down frequently? I’ve been asking around – I moved my .com domains to Google Domains Beta since they offer multiple name servers. Google isn’t known for going down often. But, they currently do not accept .tv domains.

  3. Yes, my domain is registered through namebright as I deposited the $100 and got them for $8.03/ea. I typically make my own whois privacy. I have domains registered under multiple “example Name Privacy” Then I sometimes include Spam mail will be prosecuted. It cuts down on it tremendously. There are a few cheaper options than name silo, however I do have about 85 domains registered through them as well. I’m not looking at Epik. Free Whois, same price as Name Bright but I do believe it’s every year free whois privacy.

  4. Namesilo has really BAD reviews. Look at Trust Pilot website. They have no customer service phone & very rarely are they on the chat help. You get what you pay for!

  5. Forgot to mention…you named your article REGISTRARS…plural. But you only advertised 1. This looks like a paid or fake ad for them.

    1. Hey Jessie, this was an older post which had out-dated sites removed over the years. We need to update it at some point to make sure it’s giving the best options out there.
