Whois ID Protect

When a new domain name is registered, the domain owner has to provide personal information like name and organization, living address, phone, email address, etc. This information is easily accessible once the domain name is live; and in today's world it is highly imperative to shield the private information. This is where domain ID protection comes into picture. Webhosting UK's Domain ID protection service protects your personal/business information that is listed in the Domain WHOIS. WHOIS is a protocol that provides information about the domains, host and networks. Domain ID Protect feature protects the information from the public eye and thus your domain name and the information related to it is safe from any kind of online/offline misuse.

Domain ID Protection Process

ICANN [Internet Corporation For Assigned Name And Numbers] makes it mandatory for the owner/manager of the domain name to provide his personal contact information. With Domain ID protect, a third party becomes the legal owner of the domain, even though the domain protection service is simply acting as the landlord of the Internet property. As the domain protection service serves as the legal owner of the business, this company can put its company's own information as a forwarding service, as opposed to that of the registrant. This way, all the emails and contacts will be made to the domain protection service.

Main Features of Domain ID Protect:

  • The personal information of the individuals who register a domain is shielded from spammers and marketers who seek for such information by looking up in WHOIS
  • Marketers won't be able to access the telephone numbers for making sales calls.
