Opt-Out of the Nominet WHOIS Database

Learn how to opt your contact information out of the Nominet WHOIS database.

With domain names that are issued by Nominet (.uk, .org.uk, .co.uk, etc), there is an option for private individuals to have their registration details hidden. This is similar to private registration that is available with some other domain name extensions, but only applies to domains offered by Nominet in this case.

Please note:
This is only for personal domain names, this option is not available for Domain Names that will be used for commercial purposes.

Follow these steps to hide your person details.
