Stay Protected With Domain Privacy

United Domains now has hundreds of new domains available for registration and many more still on the way. After seeing the impact new domains have had on the market and the growing interest from our customers, we are happy to announce that WHOIS Protection Services are now available for nearly every New Domain extension for just $9.90 annually per domain.

Every domain name registrar is required to enter your personal contact information in a central public WHOIS database. While it’s important to comply with this ICANN regulation, having your personal information easily accessible can leave you vulnerable to domain related spam, telemarketers, domain hacking, identity theft and other illegal online activities.

Domain Privacy (WPS), shields your information from the public by replacing your personal data with our information. This allows you to maintain your personal information private, while remaining easily available to legitimate customers and potential businesses partners.

Domain Privacy is One Click Away

If you already have a domain with us, enabling privacy is a snap. Simply log in to your United Domains account and locate the domain you want to protect. Then click the activate domain privacy button to its right.

To anyone with a new domain registration in mind, we’ve added Domain Privacy activation right into your shopping cart, so protecting your new domain is fast and easy. When ordering your domain, simply click the add domain privacy button next to that domain before you complete your order. Domain Privacy (WPS) will be enabled the instant your new domain is registered!

Whether you are a blogger, entrepreneur, or an established business, domain privacy is essential for protecting your information online. So don’t wait — protect your information and keep your domain safe with Domain Privacy (WPS).

.HIV: Every Click Makes a Difference

When it launched in August, .HIV made history as the web’s first and only domain dedicated to a raising awareness and money for a cause. HIV/AIDS has claimed the lives of over 28 million people worldwide since first appearing in the 1980s. Today more than 34.5 million people are living with HIV, making the call for awareness all the more important.

dotHIV is the charitable organization and registry behind the new .HIV domain. Their goal is to rally momentum for the fight against HIV/AIDS by raising money, growing awareness, fighting stigma and giving HIV/AIDS-related organizations a place to network. And their mission appears to be working, with many mainstream news outlets like Adweek, The Huffington Post and Slate covering the extension.

“The support we have received for .hiv has been amazing,” Michael Twist, dotHIV’s Chief Marketing Officer, shared. “We have some very close ties to the not-for-profit community, as well as both the LGBT and technology communities who all support and appreciate the efforts we are making to raise funds and awareness.”

dotHIV raises awareness not only for their own cause, but for new domains in general. A report by Sedo found that nearly 60% of those surveyed were either unaware of new domains or were aware but unsure of the purpose of new domains. Despite this, there has been widespread adoption of .HIV especially by the creative industry. The long list of supporters includes agencies, blogs, photographers and designers, providing an undeniably hip vibe to the .HIV extension.

This initial wave of support has brought in more than 25,000 visits to .HIV websites. Click count is imperative to dotHIV’s funding model as each click contributes to the growing amount of funds to support their goals. With World AIDS Day approaching on December 1st, clicks are likely to only increase. This focus on raising funds and awareness is what sets .HIV apart from other new domains.

With more and more brands and companies signing on to support .HIV, awareness for the cause will only grow online. In the meantime, .HIV will be trailblazing at the first extension dedicated to a social cause.

“It’s an absolute privilege to be the first social cause TLD and we certainly feel a great responsibility to ensure its ultimate success, but this was not a concept or endeavour that was birthed overnight,” Twist said. “There is a lot to do until we reach the end of AIDS. Until then we will be focusing our efforts… and then: you never know what the future may bring!”
