Private Registrations - WHOISTrustee Services Skip to main.

After many resellers requested WHOIS Privacy registration services, HEXONET is excited and happy to announce the availability of WHOISTrustee and WHOISTrustee-Lite.  Starting April 28, 2011, shielding and protecting the public WHOIS Data for a domain becomes simple and very cost effective.


With WHOISTrustee, all WHOIS information is completely masked from the public. Registrants retain full control over their domain and have fully access to modify their domain at anytime.
