WHOIS privacy protection:
The governing body for domain names, ICANN, requires all websites to provide valid contact information (WHOIS) for public availability.
This puts your personal information at risk because ANYONE, including spammers and telemarketers, can get your information with a simple WHOIS search for your domain.
WHOIS Privacy Protection allows you to use contact information provided by a third party instead. This satisfies ICANN requirements and keeps your real information hidden.
All domains registered through 2MHost get FREE Privacy Protection. Other companies make you pay extra to stay safe online...
|Registrar/Host||Private registration fees|
We provide WHOIS Privacy Protection for FREE with all domain names registered through 2MHost.com.
Rules established by ICANN, the governing body for domain names, require valid contact information be publicly available for all domain names. WHOIS Privacy Protection provides valid contact information that satisfies these requirements, without exposing your personal contact information.
Domain name WHOIS displays your name, address, and email address that you provided when purchasing your domain. Anyone in the world can do a simple search in the WHOIS database through search engines and many other websites. WHOIS Privacy Protection provides proxy information instead of your personal contact information. Legitimate parties who want to contact you will use the proxy information and we will forward that to you. Spam won't be forwarded.
The domain name WHOIS database is a major source of email addresses for spammers. If your domain name has WHOIS Privacy Protection turned on, it will change the WHOIS email address several times a year. Spammers harvest and use one WHOIS email address, but once we change it that source of spam is cut off.
To prove ownership of your domain, you can temporarily disable WHOIS Privacy Protection from your 2MHost admin area and then ask the verifying party to confirm your WHOIS registration details
Once the ownership verification is complete, you can turn the WHOIS Privacy Protection service back on through your domain admin area.
