WHOIS Privacy Protection
The WHOIS Protection service, also known as Privacy Protection, is designed to shield the WHOIS information associated with a domain name.
With our reseller hosting program, you will be able to offer WHOIS Privacy Protection with the following services: cloud web hosting packages, virtual private servers, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated servers.
How WHOIS Privacy Protection works
According to ICANN’s rules, the WHOIS data pertaining to a newly registered domain name, including personal or corporate contact details, is publicly available. This opens a back door for abusers and spammers. By enabling WHOIS Protection, domain owners will have their WHOIS data replaced by generic information, which will eliminate all chances of spam outbreaks, identity theft or domain hijacking.
WHOIS Privacy Protection availability
Not all TLDs are WHOIS Privacy Protection-eligible. You can order WHOIS Privacy Protection for the following generic and country-specific domain extensions: .COM, .NET, .ORG, .WE.BS, .INFO, .BIZ, .CO, .ME, .TV, .CC.
