What is Whois Privacy?
Whois Privacy Protection is a service that most major domain registrars offer to their clients to keep whois information private. When whois privacy is used, a third party essentially becomes the "proxy owner" of the domain name, but forwards communications onto you, the actual owner. If you see text in a domain registration that says something like "Private Registration" or "Privacy Protected", that means the owner of the domain does not want you to be able to see their information. You should still be able to email that owner, but you won't really know who is on the other end of the conversation.

What is EV? This information might be out of context
Extended Validation (EV) SSL is a more trusted way of identifying the authority of individuals who request SSL certificates. In short, it means that there is more trust that goes into verifying your identity, and therefore allows SSL Certificates to be trusted by browsers more easily.
When you have an EV SSL certificate on your website, most modern browsers make the URL bar green and highlight the fact that you have passed extra levels of identification which gives more trust to your company and website.
EV SSL is perfect for companies who plan on storing valuable customer data or processing credit cards through their website. Do note, when requesting an EV SSL the issuing certificate provider will require a registered legal name (an individual will not suffice), registration numbers and address(es) of registering organizations.
Whois History Details This information might be out of context
When someone wants to know who owns a domain name, NameBright is required to provide whois information that shows the owner of the domain name. When this is done, NameBright tracks this on the domain so that you can have an idea how popular your domain name is.
This data is available to you for free with your domain registration. However, you can only see 30 days of this data on a regular, non-upgraded domain. To view data going as far back as the domain has been with NameBright you will first have to Upgrade Your Domain.
* Please note this information is only available for the most popular domain extensions that provide "thin whois". Thin whois means the person doing the lookup has to first go to the registry and then to the registrar to get the whois information. Some registries use "thick whois" meaning those whois lookups are only done at the registry, and are never passed along to NameBright. In situations where NameBright does not serve Whois Data, we do not report Whois usage.
