Privacy Services

Secure your Domain Privacy


Since May 25th, 2018, European and generic top-level domains have limited the amount of Whois data available on the internet to comply with the European data privacy regulation (GDPR).

However, the registrant's data still needs to be submitted to the registries. Some top-level domains require the complete set of Whois data and make it publicly available.

The WHOIS service provides information such as the registrant's name and, depending on the responsible registry's policy, their street address and email addresses. It is important to note that using incorrect, incomplete, or fake data violates the registration agreement with the related registry and Joker.com, and may result in the deletion of the domain name (refer to section 5.c/11.d of Joker.com T&C).

To protect registrants from data abuse, proxy-privacy.com, through IDPS (International Domain Privacy Services) GmbH, a subsidiary of CSL GmbH, offers privacy protection services. These services effectively shield the registrant's information, keeping their data confidential. By using these services, the registrant is represented by alternate contact data provided by IDPS GmbH while remaining compliant with registration policies.

The registrant's own data will still be securely maintained and escrowed by Joker.com to ensure the registrant's ownership of the domain and compliance with ICANN's and the registry's policies.

Privacy services are available for most gTLD domain names. The availability of privacy services is indicated in the price list and domain search (icon Whois Proxy Privacy available).

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

Examples


Transfer with privacy service

Let's assume you have a .com domain with a remaining term of 5 months, and you want to transfer it to Joker.com with a privacy basic service.

This would result in:

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*

*The above price is an example only, actual prices are shown in our Price List

Renew with privacy service (I)

Let's say you want to renew a .com domain expiring in 3 months and enable Whois privacy pro:

1-year renewal for the .com domain:  USD 13.70*
1-year privacy pro service: USD   2.49*
result - 1-year additional domain term, and 15 months of privacy  USD 16.19*
the additional 3 months are "rounded down" which means, they are added, but not charged

*The above price is an example only, actual prices are shown in our Price List

Renew with privacy service (II)

Let's say you want to renew a .com domain expiring in 8 months and enable Whois privacy pro:

1-year renewal for the .com domain:  USD 13.70*
2 years of privacy pro service: USD   4.98*
result - 1-year additional domain term, and 20 months of privacy  USD 18.68*
the additional 8 months are "rounded up"  which means, an additional year of privacy is charged

*The above price is an example only, actual prices are shown in our Price List

Acquire privacy service for an existing domain (I)

Let's assume you own a .com domain expiring in 13 months, and you want to add privacy pro:

1-year privacy pro service: USD   2.49*
result - domain term is unchanged, and 13 months of privacy 

USD   2.49*

the additional 1 month is "rounded down" which means, they are added, but not charged

*The above price is an example only, actual prices are shown in our Price List

Acquire privacy service for an existing domain (II)

Let's assume you own a .com domain expiring in 3 months, and you want to add privacy pro. In this case, you will receive a warning because the privacy term cannot exceed the domain's term. We advise considering using the "Renewal" option with privacy in this scenario:

1-year privacy pro service: USD   2.49*
result - domain term is unchanged, and 3 months of privacy 

USD   2.49*

you will only get 3 months of privacy service - you should consider 'renewal' instead

*The above price is an example only, actual prices are shown in our Price List
