Domain protection and security
Protecting your domain name is critical to maintaining a healthy online presence. One way of doing this is with private domain registration. This hides your personal contact data from the public, effectively masking your registration details with the name of your web hosting provider. It's only available with certain domains.
Having authenticated proof of your domain ownership and preventing third-party access to your personal domain data can also help protect your domain name.
IONOS offers a wide range of domain security and protection services. With IONOS domain security products like Domain Guard and DNS Pro, you can protect your domain from DDoS attacks, safeguard against DNS hijacking and spoofing via DNSSEC, ensure faster, reliable, and secure DNS resolution, and choose Premium Anycast or secondary DNS with DNS backup and restore. Customized DNS templates are also offered as a part of an optional add-on that will work with any domain.
As long as you do not proactively cancel your domain (for which you will receive reminders from us in advance), we will auto-renew your contract. This way, you do not have to worry about your domain expiring unexpectedly.
Private domain registration makes sure that your Whois information is not visible to third parties. The Domain Guard, however, protects you against hackers trying to access and alter your DNS records.
