Making your domain registration detail private

If you use a Yola subdomain, such as "" it is completely anonymous and also free.

If you purchase a domain through Yola, such as "", we pass the user details you give us during the domain registration to our domain registrar partner. This domain will not be registered as anonymous.

The Internet Coalition for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires that the mailing address, phone number and e-mail address of those owning/managing a domain name to be made publicly available through the "WHOIS" directories, for accountability purposes, because we sold you the domain, your information is attached to it.

You have the option to pay for domain privacy then you purchase your domain from Yola. The additional cost for domain privacy US$9.95 per year. Your information will be not be displayed.

If you have already purchased your domain from us and would like to enable domain privacy, we can do so at a cost of US$9.95.  We will send a payment request via PayPal.

Please email us at if you would like further assistance in this regard.
