What is ID Protection?
ID Protection is a service that hides your private information from being displayed publicly in a global database that is frequently used by spammers and data miners to bombard unprotected people with unsolicited advertisements and scams. ID Protection can be used on any domain registration from one of the following TLDs:
.COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO, .BIZ and .ME.
Why is it necessary to add ID Protection to every domain I register?
Every domain registration is required to have accurate contact information (WHOIS data) associated with it. Data miners crawl the public WHOIS database for this information and sell it to marketing firms and advertising agencies, which can result in both spam and junk mail to your home. ID Protect hides your accurate contact information and stores it in a secure location, protecting your personal information without risking the suspension of the domain’s registration.
What are the benefits of ID Protection?
Other WHOIS masking products only falsify your WHOIS records which can jeopardize your domain registration. ID Protection secures your private information by storing it in a trusted 3rd party data vault, and is completely complaint with ICANN. (ICANN is the governing body of Internet rules and regulations).
ID Protection forwards legitimate emails to your real email address, but keeps spammers and data miners away. Without ID Protection, anyone can find your personal contact information including your home address. ID Protection hides this information while protecting your personal address from getting into the wrong hands.
