Keep Your Contact Information Safe

Aug 05th, 2011

It is very important to keep your personal information safe and secure. There are many people out there who are actively looking for your information, and will use it for some very inappropriate activities. It is good to know that your website hosting company and domain name registrar takes many steps to ensure that your private information remains private.

First, you can rest assured that any information you enter into the Account Manager will remain private. Your name, phone number, email address, any information you provide, will always remain private, and no one will ever be given any of this information.

It is also extremely important that you keep your contact information up to date in the User Information and Contact Information sections of the Account Manager. We send out notices occasionally about your service, renewals, or problems. If you haven't updated your contact information to your current information, you may not receive those notices. Please make sure you always update your contact information if anything changes, we would hate to see you miss out on something important!

Keeping the correct contact information updated for your Domain Contacts is also very important. Information about who is responsible for domain names is publicly available to allow rapid resolution of technical problems and to permit enforcement of consumer protection, trademark, and other laws. This information is available to the public on a “Whois” site.

For people who do not want their personal information to be made available to the public, we offer a wonderful service called Domain Privacy Protection. By purchasing Domain Privacy Protection, you license a third party company to accept responsibility for the contact information. Your contact information will be replaced by our privacy protection company's information, shielding you from unwanted spam and identity theft.

You can enable Domain Privacy Protection in the Account Manager under the Domain Name Registration Management section if your domain is registered through us. If your domain is not registered through us, we highly recommend that you transfer your domain to us so that you can utilize this important service to protect you and your personal information.

If you take the appropriate steps to keep your contact information up to date through our system, we will ensure that you are notified of any upcoming renewals or relevant updates. By utilizing our Domain Privacy Protection service, we will ensure that your personal information is safe and secure.
