Privacy/Proxy

With Ascio's privacy and proxy services you can ensure ICANN compliant anonymity for you and your customer in the Whois.

With contact data so readily available on the Whois, it opens up the domain owner to potential identity theft, domain hijacks, and other illegal activities. However, you and your customers need not worry. With Ascio’s Privacy/Proxy service you can:

✓ Keep domain owner identity confidential in the Whois directory.

✓ Provide protection against identity thieves, stalkers, and harassers.

✓ Prohibit domain hijackers

✓ Offer a service that is fully ratified and compliant with ICANN

Ascio Privacy Service

With the Ascio Privacy Service we enable you to allow a domain name holder to be listed as the official owner but with alternate, valid contact data published in place of the registrant’s contact details. By choosing this service you get:

  • Default masking of Registrant and Admin-C contact data (excl. registrant real name)
  • Flexible masking options. Choose what you want to mask, be it all or select contact details.
  • Cover for all ICANN governed TLD’s (gTLDs and New gTlds)
  • Automated generation of unique mail address per masked contact, with received mails forwarded to the real contact.
  • Privacy solution compliant with registrant verification, ERRP, Whois-data reminders, and ICANN escrowing requirements.

Ascio Proxy Service

Our Proxy service ensures that the identity of a domain owner remains completely hidden from appearing in the Whois. The proxy becomes the registered name holder on record replacing that of the domain owner. Owners will still have full access to manage their domain but without their name appearing in the Whois. By signing-up for this service we ensure:

  • ALL contact data is masked
  • The proxy will be the entity listed as the registrant in the Whois
  • Service is available for all ICANN governed TLD’s (gTLDs & New gTLDs)
  • Automated generation of unique mail address per masked contact, with received mails forwarded to the real contact.
  • Proxy solution is compliant with registrant verification, ERRP, Whois-data reminders, and ICANN escrowing requirements.
