Why is Whois protection a must-have security service?
In an attempt to make the web more transparent and reality-relevant, ICANN – the body that governs the assignment of Internet addresses, has set forth a requirement for domain owners to provide accurate and up-to-date contact information at registration.
The information provided by registrants is then made publicly accessible through the so-called Whois system.
While it is a great idea to keep the web clean of false information, the reality has witnessed tons of Whois details, including emails, phones and postal addresses, being harvested by spammers with cruel intentions.
With Whois protection enabled, the domain owner’s personal information will be hidden from the public Whois system.
To ensure an ICANN-compliant anonymity, the Whois protection service replaces the registrant’s information with proxy data, in this case with our own contact details.
This allows domain owners to comply with ICANN’s Whois contact information rules while protecting their personal information.
