You probably know by now that owning and maintaining a domain name will require you to declare your personal information, like your name, mailing address, business address, phone number and other contact data. You really don’t a choice on the matter. It is necessary to properly identify you as the real owner of the domain name.
ICANN’s Whois database
The Whois database contains, not just the registered domain names, but also the name of its owner, phone number, address and other pertinent contact details. It literally answers the query ‘who is?’. But who is allowed to put that query? The general public, of course. It means that anybody under the sun can poke and pry the Whois database. As such, it is mandatory for this database to be accessible to them 24/7. There are even search engines, which are developed for the sole purpose of looking into Whois databases. If you count yourself as one of those who value privacy, you might really think twice before venturing into this. People from all walks of life can directly communicate with you. Consequently, your risk against online misuses and abuses, such as spam mails, online hacking, identity theft and unauthorized disclosures, will surely soar. Is there an appropriate solution for this? Yes, there is.
