Overview

Domain privacy is a service available from (mt) Media Temple which protects your personal contact information from being displayed publicly on the domain's WHOIS listing. From your Account Center, you can purchase and enable this feature.

NOTE:
The Domain Tools menu will only be available if your domain is registered through (mt) Media Temple. If you do not see this, double-check where your domain is registered by doing a WHOIS search.
