ID PROTECT

Shield Your Identity

Put a stop to domain related spam; make your domain registration private with ID Protect?

Did you know that current domain regulations require that your private contact information be included in a publicly accessible database known as WhoIs? This means that your private information is displayed and made available to anyone that wants to see it, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

ID Protect: Because your privacy is important!

ID protect works in the same way as having your phone number “unlisted”: it prevents people from gaining access to your address, phone number and other private information.

How ID Protect Works

Without ID Protect, spammers can obtain your email address from harvesting and then use it for spamming purposes and redistribution to marketing firms. Your email address can stay on file with various spammers and marketing firms for years. Due to our dynamic email system, the visible email address is constantly changing, so while it is being harvested and redistributed, it will change and the previous address will no longer work for the spammer. The Domain Privacy Protection Service secures and maintains your real email address on file so you receive important information regarding your domain.
Offering you complete control

You retain full legal ownership and control over your domain name. You can sell, renew, transfer and change settings to your domain name just the same as before. Your domain control panel provides you real-time access to easily manage your domain name.
* ID Protect is not available for .US names
