Why Every Domain Needs ID Protect
In America alone, there are an estimated 9 million cases of identity theft each year¹ and 3 trillion² spam emails sent each year. Spammers and thieves can get your information through your domain name’s public record. ID Protect keeps your information safe by privatizing your domain’s entry in public records.
You have questions, we have answers.
Why is my personal information available when I purchase a domain name? Rules established by ICANN, the governing body for domain names, require valid contact information be publicly available for all domain names. ID Protect provides valid contact information that satisfies these requirements without exposing your personal contact information.
What personal information is displayed in domain name Whois? Domain name Whois displays name, address, and email address. Anyone anywhere can search the Whois database through any search engine and many other web sites. ID Protect provides proxy information instead of your personal contact information. Parties who want to contact you use the proxy information, and we forward to you.
What TLDs allow for ID Protection? Currently ID Protection can be added on for the following TLDs: .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .name, .tv, .cc, .me
