Setting Up Secret Registration

Version 1

    Registrants may decide that obscuring the WHOIS details of their domain name is in their best interests for privacy. Dyn offers a Secret Registration service which does just that.

     

     

    Enabling Secret Registration

    If you purchased a domain name and did not opt for the Secret Registration at the time of your transaction, you can add it at any time by following these steps:

    Note: Not all TLDs that Dyn provides registration services for allow Secret Registration. If the link to enable the service does not appear, then Secret Registration is not available.
