FAQ - Your questions? We got answers!
What’s in the WHOIS directory?
The WHOIS directory is a searchable list of every single domain name registered in the world, including the names, addresses and other details of the people who own them.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires accredited registrars to publish this information in the WHOIS listing as soon as the domain is registered.
How does Privacy Protection work?
Instead of displaying your personal information in the WHOIS database for all to see, our partner Domains By Proxy will replace it with its own. The domain will belong to you – except now, you and Domains By Proxy® will be the only ones who know it.
So everyone can see my information?
The short answer is yes. The name, address and phone number you submit when you register your domain is publicly accessible by anyone at any time. This may be good news if you have a domain name you’d like to sell. Or it may be bad news if your name and contact info is collected by a spammer, hacker or cyber-criminal.
What are the benefits of Privacy Protection?
Privacy Protection through Domains By Proxy gives you full control over your domain names while protecting you from identity theft, domain-related spam and domain name hijacking.
Domains By Proxy even creates a private and unique email address for each domain name. You get to decide if you want the email forwarded to you, filtered, or completely blocked.
