Hello,

I want to add complete privacy to my domain name, when someone search for it in the WHOIS database.
Adding a privacy protection will hide the owner name, organization and other fields. But it don't hide the name servers, NS1.DOMAIN.COM , etc..

Is there a way to Hide it or change it while keeping the website running ?

The support operator at Godaddy told me change some A records to achieve it but I didn't understand his way.

Thank you for some hints.

I think you're talking about domain whois privacy. This is something offered by the registrar, in most cases now it's free, if you're in the EU it should be applied to all domains automatically as a result of GDPR. Some domains like .us domains do not allow domain privacy. If you have a domain that this is not available for you might want to look at something like CloudFlare if you want to obfuscate the whois information, this will hide the real nameservers as well though.
