Domain Guard provides effective protection for your domain names against unauthorized or faulty changes. Authorized persons designated by you must approve any domain changes before they are permitted to be implemented.
Domain Guard operates according to the approval principle in order to prevent unauthorized third parties from taking over a domain name or carrying out any malicious activities - even if they gain access to a user's account.
Accidental or erroneous internal actions are minimized thanks to Domain Guard's supervisory function over the approval concept. As a result, any inadvertent errors are identified before it is too late.
Variations of a domain name also require the approval of all authorized persons, thereby preventing unauthorized changes and variations.
William's team uses Domain Guard to protect its domain names against changes and variations and consequently from being exploited by third parties. Domain Guard also helps the team identify and protect against any instances of erroneous internal manipulation.
For 1 authorized person
This authorized person has 7 days’ right of refusal. Should the authorized person not respond within this period, the change is implemented.
For up to 2 authorized persons
Hostpoint executes the change only after all authorized persons associated with the domain have approved the request.
With our trustee service (Domain Privacy), you are represented in the domain registry by “Swiss Domain Trustee AG”. This way, third parties are unable to access your personal information. Customers of the trustee service experience no disadvantages. We always forward legitimate inquiries to you. Your personal information is protected:

Hostpoint Domain Guard offers protection for your valuable domain. After activating Domain Guard, as the domain owner you can select a certain number of authorized persons. Future changes to the domain can only be executed once they have been approved by all authorized persons.
This prevents malicious external or inadvertent internal manipulation, thereby providing effective protection for your domain name.
Log in to the Hostpoint Control Panel and select "Domains" from the menu. You can then activate Hostpoint Domain Guard for any of your domains.
Please note: Once you have activated Domain Guard and have added any authorized persons, it will no longer be possible for individual persons to make changes to the domain.
No. You must manage your domain name through Hostpoint in order to use Domain Guard. If you buy a new domain name from us or transfer your existing domain nameto us, you can activate Domain Guard via the Control Panel.
