If GreenGeeks Registers My Domain, Who Owns It?

You own your domain name, even if we register it. GreenGeeks will be the provider of your domain name, and we will register or transfer it according to your needs, but you will be the sole owner of the domain name.

By default, the contact information used when you open your hosting account is used for the domain registration and will be displayed in the WHOIS database

If you wish to make your registration information private, GreenGeeks offers ID Protect WHOIS privacy service for $9.95 a year.

  1. Is there an option when registering an account to protect domain contact information? I don’t recall having to submit a request to protect my domain contact information with another account I manage.

  2. Hello Tim,

    At this time, in order to obtain ID Protection (our version of Whois Privacy), kindly reach out to sales@www.greengeeks.com. ID Protection is currently $9.95/yr.
