How many times have you registered a domain and received an email within hours asking if you want help developing a new website for your brand new domain? Spammers are active and they are searching your Whois Information for every domain that you register.
Whenever you register a domain, you provide ICANN with a set of contact details for a Registrant contact, Administrative contact and Technical contact. Unless you've purchased domain privacy protection, your name, address, email address and phone number are all publicly available using a Whois Lookup Service.
Whenever you register a domain, you have the option to purchase privacy protection for a small additional fee. This is a great service to have and we strongly recommend adding it to every domain. If you already own a domain without privacy protection, you may contact us and have the service added at any time.
