Domain Privacy can keep your name and address from being released to the public WHOIS database records. When you choose to add Domain Privacy to your website, Lycos (or a partner) will list itself as the owner of your domain name and act as a proxy for legitimate domain-related communication, keeping your personal information secure.
What Domain Privacy can do for you
