When selling our clients hosting services, Nerds On Site strives to keep the process as streamlined and intuitive as possible. In the web hosting and domain registration world there are a lot of options, and this can get confusing. One such option is ID Protect, also known as WHOIS Protection. This valuable service hides your public WHOIS information, such as your name, address and phone number from spammers and Internet thieves. By hiding this information, you make it much harder for thieves to try to steal your domain name.
Once an add-on service, ID Protect is now included free of charge with every new supported domain registration! For every new com, net, org, biz, info, name, tv, cc, me, Nerds On Site will automatically turn on ID Protect to keep your domain even safer than before.
Without ID Protect, spammers can obtain your email and contact information and then use it for spamming purposes and redistribution to marketing firms. Your email address can stay on file with various spammers and marketing firms for years. Check out the difference between an unprotected and protected domain registration.
