Threats to online security are growing more and more sophisticated. Did you know that your name, address, email address and phone number are all displayed in the public WHOIS database when you register a domain name? Unscrupulous marketeers look for any opportunity to gain access to personal information. Accessing the WHOIS database is an easy way to gain such information. You can easily become the target of unsolicited email, junk mail and telemarketing calls by leaving this information public. The possibilities of stalking and harrassment even exist.
You can protect your personal information by adding private registration to your domain name. When you add private registration to your domain name Webs-a-gogo provides alternate contact information that will display in the public WHOIS database. The domain name is still yours to do with as you wish. You can sell it, renew it, transfer it, etc. but your personal information remains private.
Adding Private Domain Registration to your domain name provides you with security from unwanted, unsolicited use of your personal information. You can add Private Domain Registration to any domain name for only $9.00 per year (plus the domain registration fee).
- How will I know when to renew my domain if you use "alternate" contact information? Webs-a-gogo's notification systems are designed to insure your domain name is always protected from accidental expiration. You will be notified by email 45, 30, 15 and 7 days prior to the expiration date. If we haven't heard from you by 3 days prior to expiration or 1 day prior to expiration we'll send another email and also attempt to call you on the phone numbers you've registered with us.
