Keep Your Personal Information Private!

What is ID Protection?

.

When a domain name is registered, some information (such as personal/business) is displayed on the whois lookup as per regulatory requirements.

.

Depending on the domain name extension, different types of information is displayed to those conducting a lookup.

.

Where gTLD registrations such as .com, .net and .org are concerned, personal contact information such as name, address, email address and phone number must be supplied as part of the registration process and this is displayed on the whois database for all to see.

.

It is a regulatory requirement that the information supplied on the domain name registration is valid to allow for contact to be made via email, but this information can be hidden by private proxy information.

.

ID Protection allows you to protect your identity and reduce spam from scammers scraping whois databases; it does this by replacing your information with generic name and address details.

.

The final piece of the puzzle is a hidden email address which forwards onto your real email address; this means they won’t see your real email address, but you will see emails sent regarding your domain name.

4 Reasons You Should Have ID Protection.

1. Protect Your Personal Data

.

Identity theft continues to be a common problem, and every 2 seconds there is a new victim. We go to great lengths to protect our privacy when it comes to banking, phone numbers, and even the information we share on social media.

.

There is enough data contained in a WHOIS domain record for a skilled or tenacious thief to start causing problems, and enable them to dig deeper into your personal data for the purpose of identity theft.

.

The same precaution should be taken with domain registration information.

.

2. Stop Unwanted Solicitations

.

Listing personal contact information for your domain is an open invitation from telemarketers, sales people, spammers, and con artists. There are countless services that scrape WHOIS data for contact information, specifically from recently registered websites.

.

It doesn’t take long after a domain registration to start getting a flood of calls and emails about SEO services, content optimization, social media marketing, mailing services, virtual assistants, freelance opportunities from people overseas, and more.

.

3. Protect Your Email Address

.

When you use private domain registration, your registrar typically creates an alias or unique email address that is used in place of your own within the WHOIS database.

.

This email address does not remain constant and will be updated fairly often. This is done to keep away unsolicited email from spammers.

.

4. Prevent Domain Hijacking

.

Domain hijacking used to be a much larger issue. Thanks to domain transfers being locked by default by most registrars after acquisition, it’s not as easy as it used to be. With this lock set, no one is able to transfer your domain away from you unless they somehow manage to get access to your domain registrar account and email.

.

While privacy protection is enabled, the domain transfer authorization email will be sent to the dummy email address listed rather than the registrant’s email address, making the transfer fail if not authorized.

.

Most (if not all) dummy email addresses provided by registrars do NOT forward to the registrant’s email address.

If you already have a domain name but registered at another company, it’s mean your domain registrar is not with us.
