Domain Privacy: protected public registry listings

Swiss Domain Trustee (SDT) offers registered domain owners a way to protect the domain names of their customers from being publicly listed in the WHOIS directory. The service is available for business as well as private domain owners.

The service explained in simple terms

  • WHOIS query
    without Domain Privacy:
    Domain name
    Owner
    hochberger.ch
    Michael Hochberger
    Dorfstrasse 23
    CH-8000 Zurich
    Switzerland

    Without Domain Privacy, the registration details, such as the company name, first and last name, and address, are publicly available via a WHOIS query. Depending on the TLD ending, this also applies to the e-mail address and phone number. Owners run the risk of their domain becoming a target for misuse.

  • WHOIS query
    with Domain-Privacy:
    Domain name
    Owner
    hochberger.ch
    Swiss Domain Trustee AG
    Neue Jonastrasse 60
    CH-8640 Rapperswil-Jona
    Switzerland

    Domain Privacy offers the customer a proxy, Swiss Domain Trustee (SDT), for their listing in the domain registry. This way, third parties are unable to access personal information about the owner. There are no restrictions for SDT customers. Third parties can still always reach you via Swiss Domain Trustee.
