Why privacy protection?

January 29, 2010     0 comments

  • When buying a domain name you have to provide accurate contact information or else your domain registration could be terminated as it would be in violation of the registration agreement.
  • This information has to be made publicly available to everyone via the public WHOIS database as required by ICANN, the international governing body for domain names.
  • Everyday, this valuable source of accurate contact information is targeted and harvested by spammers and telemarketers resulting in unwanted and unsolicited contact. Also since your contact information is public, you are at risk for identity theft and fraud and of being contacted by harassers and stalkers.
  • Privacy Protection ensures that your private information is not published by replacing all your publicly visible contact details with alternate contact information.
