Since the beginning, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers or otherwise known as ICANN, requires domain owners to fill in their contact information linked with the domain. This information includes names, address, emails and more which are all available to the public through the Whois database. The Whois database is an online repository of details associated with each registered domain name. Information present in the database include domain name information, creation date, expiration date, registrar of record, registrant details, billing, administrative and technical contact details.
Private domain registrations allow personal details that would be visible to the public to stay hidden. Information like your name, address, email address, and phone number will be hidden from the public is the privacy option is enabled. This type of add-on service allows your information to be private and will help protect you and your website. Make sure your domain is safe and secure.
