Registering Private Domain Allows You to Hide Your Identity

In order to understand the importance in taking advantage of private domain registration one would need to know what a domain actually is. A domain is a name used to identify and pin point a server. In more understandable terms, it is basically the websites web address or URL. In order to acquire a domain name one must start by finding a domain registrar and then continue the registration process. During the registration is, usually, when the option to register privately or anonymously is given.

If you don't want your personal information available to anyone and everyone on the world wide web registering privately or anonymously is a necessary task. Why does choosing to register privately matter? The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, also known as ICANN, in most cases, requires that the owner or manager of a domain name make their phone number, mailing address, as well as their e-mail address openly accessible and appearing in the WHOIS directories. Doing that allows any one on the world wide web, the government, identity thieves, hackers, spammers, as well as many more, to gain access to personal information belonging to anyone who owns a domain.

Action has been made to change WHOIS's policy's in a way that allows for privacy practices to be taken but that currently is at a standstill due to the fact that the major stakeholders can not come to an agreement about the sort of changes needed to be made. If that is the case, then how are domain registrars able to offer private or anonymous domain registration? When you register privately or anonymously, most of the time, domain registrars still ask for personal information. Unfortunately, a few of these so called 'private' registrars do not take much convincing to release personal information. In fact, in some cases, all that is needed in order to acquire personal information is a phone request. There still are registrars out there that actually mean what they say when offering private domain registration.

They are able to do this by using off shore hosts and not accepting credit cards as a form of payment in order to keep the information belonging to the domain owner away from the public. Also, the Canadian Internet Registration Authority no longer offers information having to do with details acquired during registration. In conclusion, private domain Registration is very important as a factor in keeping our internet users safe. If offered, take advantage of the privacy. Always do research, prior to registering, on the domain registrar's privacy policy's so you know how private your information actually is. Private Domain Registration keeps your personal information off the market and out of the public's view and if taken advantage of can keep you save from online predators. Private and anonymous domain registration is playing an important role in today's world of the internet.
