  • Change to T&Cs Nameshield reserves the right to change these T&Cs at any time without prior notice. It is up to users to check regularly the changes that may occur.

No use of the brand, logos, graphics, text, names, tabs, trim, features or content on the Site, including the availability search tool, is allowed without Nameshield’s prior, express and written consent.
  • Using the availability search Via the Site, Nameshield provides users online access to search availability of a domain name and access to the whois database for that name in order to see the technical and administrative details of a registered domain name. Nameshield is subject to the rules imposed by the NICs and thus may limit your access to research availability or to whois records. Nameshield does not undertake to ensure the completeness of the search result and does not guarantee the accuracy of search results. You acknowledge that Nameshield does not have the means to control the content of the WHOIS database in principle, and has no control over the content of these databases. This availability search tool is made available to you free of charge and you agree to use it in accordance with laws and regulations and to not collect information for commercial purposes. You acknowledge that this research is carried out at a specific time and therefore does not take into account the registration applications that have not yet been processed by the NICs.
