Domain Cost Club and private registration services
The questions I asked initially were as follows along with the current answers as on July 14, 2015:
Does DCC offer domain privacy as a service, like other domain name registrars?
If so, how much does it cost?
With Domain Cost Club, this service is provided free of charge to Domain Cost Club Members whose membership of Domain Cost Club has not elapsed.
If not, is it a service that DCC will provide in the near future?
It is now available.
Some time back, I was pleased and thrilled to find out that it was something that they planned in putting in place and therefore it was only a manner of time before it would be in place.
I kept in touch with them on a decent periodic basis over the last few months as I know that this is something that could be important to you. Not every day or every week mind you, about once every 4 to 10 weeks.
Late last night or very early this morning, depending on your point of view, I learned that this new service is now available.
What are domain private registration services
For those of you who don’t know what this is, every domain name has a number of important contact information available to the public. This information includes name, address, phone number and email address information. People that expose this information could get unwanted emails, phone calls and so forth. Using a private registration service means that this service has their data there instead, so you do not get this unwanted emails, phone calls and so forth. This provides a level of privacy.
Having private registration services in place is a really good idea.
Anyway back to Domain Cost Club and private registration services.
Activate private registration services
At this stage, I have now activated Private Registration Services for each of my domains that I have registered with Domain Cost Club. And it did not cost me any extra money as it is a free offering to all Domain Cost Club members whose paid membership ($99 per year or $499 for life) has not elapsed.
I have done some maths in my Domain Cost Club, Doing The Maths To See If It Is Worth It article.
Really good price too
I also checked the price of the Private registration service with the domain registrar I was previously with. The price there now is $7.95 per domain name per year. So I saved an amount of cash. Always good. 🙂
Another great reason to register your domain names with Domain Cost Club.
Activating private registration services within Domain Cost Club Member’s area
Below are instructions on how to activate Private Registration Services within the Domain Cost Club Member’s area:
1. Login or Signup here
2. Click your Account (Mine is “David’s Account) from the top navigation bar.
3. Click “Domain Contacts” from the left navigation bar.
4. Click “Setup Private Registration” in the “Actions” column of the “Contact List”
5. Input security questions and answers and press “Submit”
Once activated, you can set Private Registration as default for future registrations by taking the following steps:
1. Press the “Change Defaults” button
2. Check the “Use Private Registration for All” box
3. Press the “Save Changes” button
This won’t change your existing domains’ contacts. It will set future registrations to private.
You can set existing domains to private in bulk or individually. To set Private Registration in bulk, take the following steps:
1. Click “My Domains” from the left navigation bar.
2. Select domains via check-box
3. Select “Change Domain Contacts” in the “Bulk Actions…” drop-down and press “Submit”
4. Check the “Use Privacy” box and press “Save Changes”
To change an individual domain to use privacy, click the Contacts icon while in the “My Domains” area. Select “Use Privacy” and save your changes.
Can I see the Domain Cost Club Private registration terms of service?
Yes, of course.
Private registration services are provided to all Domain Cost Club Members free of charge.
To see the Domain Cost Club Private registration terms of service:
1. Login or Signup here
2. Click “Login or SignUp” from the top navigation bar
3. Click “Terms of Service”
4. Click “Private Registration Terms of Service”
When I looked at these earlier, they are brief and very much direct to the point unlike others I have seen. I like the brevity of this document.
No additional costs for Domain Cost Club members for this service
As I already mentioned above, other domain registrars’ charge additional monies for this service for each domain and for each year. I did a price comparison earlier today. The domain registrar I was previously with provides domain private registration services for $7.95 per domain per year. With them, getting domain private registration services for 3 domains costs $23.85 per year, for 5 domains costs $39.75 per year and so on. With Domain Cost Club, this is free of charge to Domain Cost Club Members whose membership of Domain Cost Club has not elapsed.
With this new offering in place, becoming a Domain Cost Club Member makes more sense, especially if you already buy a number of domains each year along with privacy. 🙂
