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.
