Privacy And Proxy Registration Service

Pursuant to ICANN’s Specification on Privacy and Proxy Registrations, Ascio offers both privacy and proxy services as defined below:

Privacy Service

A service by which a domain name is registered to the registered name holder, but for which alternative, reliable contact information is provided by Ascio for display of registered name holder’s contact information in the WHOIS or equivalent.

Proxy Service

A service by which a domain name is registered to Ascio who licenses use of the domain name to the customer in order to provide use of the domain name to the customer.  Ascio’s information is displayed in the WHOIS or equivalent. 

Terms of Service

Ascio’s registration agreement for the service is attached here.  The service uses Domain Trustees UK Limited, a company registered in England and Wales, whose contact details are used for WHOIS purposes.

Termination of the Service and WHOIS Publication. 

The registration agreement used by Ascio sets out how the service in respect of an individual domain name may be terminated.  Following termination, Ascio shall publish the customer data in the WHOIS.
