When you register a domain name, the Whois of your domain name lists your personal information (such as Name, Company Name, Address, Telephone Number, Email Address) as Contact Details for that domain name. This information becomes available to anyone who performs a Whois lookup of your domain name. Your personal information is, therefore, at risk from being manipulated by data miners, who can target you via junk email, prank telephone calls, postal messages, fax messages, etc. You may immediately put a stop to such abuse using the Privacy Protection service. When you enable this service for your domain name, we replace your Contact Details in the Whois information with dummy contact details, thus, masking your personal contact details. This article describes how you can handle Privacy Protection for a domain name.
To handle Privacy Protection for a domain name, follow the steps as mentioned below.
