Every-time a domain is registered, you enter your contact information including address & telephone number. This information then becomes public and can be visible to anyone simply performing a WHOIS check. Spammers and telemarketers then have a field day with this valuable information and you are left with unwanted and unsolicited calls and emails. Moreover, this information is mandatory so not adding it is not really an option.
Why Make this information public you ask?
Without getting too technical, ICANN, the governing body of domain names stipulates that every registrar (folks like us) has to collect this information and make it public via WHOIS records. Such is the law of the internet and anyone wanting to purchase a domain name is faced with this reality
What is the risk, you ask?
Well starting from the not so harmful spam calls and emails, you can be a victim of anything between domain theft, identity theft to several other kinds of frauds that you can think of. This is your personal information we’re talking about, data mining companies are willing to pay a pretty penny for this.
