ID Protect: What it is & Why You should have it…

  • What is ID Protect?
    • ID Protect 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 Protect can be used on any domain registration from one of the following TLDs: COM, NET, ORG, INFO, BIZ, PRO, TV, CC, ME, ASIA, CM
  • Why is it necessary to add ID Protect to every domain you 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 and your phone.  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.
  • How does it work?

ID Protect takes your unprotected, personal information and shields it from the public so that they only see the anonymous information:
