Detailed info about domain ID protect:
Current domain regulations:
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 works in the same way as having your phone number “unlisted”: it
prevents people from gaining access to your address, phone number, and other
How domain ID protect works:
ID protect insures that your private contact information is not exposed.
It is held in confidentiality and protected by the Domain Privacy Protection
Service. Their contact information is displayed to provide you with the highest
level of protection against spammers and identity theft.
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 eNom's 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.
Domain name ownership:
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.
