Why do I need a separate Domains By Proxy account?
A separate Domains By Proxy® (DBP) account ultimately adds another layer of protection to your domain name — and you!
Unlike many services we offer, DBP, a separate, affiliate company, provides our Private Registration service. By having a separate DBP account you thwart potential domain name hijackers — they need access to your DBP account and your account with us to cancel your Private Registration and steal your domain name. Most thieves don't take the time to hack two accounts, and they move on to another domain name.
You might think your domain name isn't valuable. Keep in mind domain name hijacking has increased exponentially over the years. Domain names are now stolen, not just for their value, but to facilitate all types of illicit scams worldwide, including spam and fraud, and to relay malware, destructive bots, and more.

Once you add privacy to a domain name, DBP sends you an email with your DBP account login information. Please retain this information for future reference.
