    Hello,

    I was wondering if I bought a domain now without the who-is service included could I buy it later for that domain.

    Thanks.

    All the registrars I've used in the past let you add whois protection at a later date.

    Beware though! If you don't have whois protection from the start, it's possible your unprotected details could end up in a whois search database.

    Godaddy definitely let you add privacy at a later date. From the control panel, select the domains section and click add privacy next the domain you'd like to add privacy to :)
