How to keep a domain registration private

Whois privacy is often cited in a negative manner, but there are many valid reasons for people wanting to keep a domain name registration private.
Many people choose to keep whois private so that others might not know what domain names they are buying and selling.
Whois privacy is offered at most domain name registrars. Private domain registrations are generally inexpensive. Some registrars such as Uniregistry offer free privacy on domain names.
Here are some tips to keep your whois private:

1) When registering a domain name, be sure to pay for privacy protection (or select the free privacy guard) at the time of purchase. Even if the domain name is registered publicly for a day, the Whois information could become public.

2) When buying a domain name in the aftermarket, ask the seller to add privacy before the account push or domain registrar transfer to reduce the chance of the new Whois becoming public.

3) After buying a domain name in the aftermarket, confirm that privacy is enabled inside the control panel.

4) Do not confirm privacy is enabled by doing a Whois search. If privacy is not enabled, the Whois lookup service may archive the Whois record.

5) Have the domain name registered in the name of an attorney or a trusted third party that doesn’t mind having their information in the Whois record.
