Keeping Domain Information Private

Posted on 2.22.2007
Hostway laucnhed WhoisProtector Lite this week, a way for domain name owners to keep their private contact information out of the hands of phishers, identity thieves, telemarketers and scam artists. The solution blocks the name and all contact information in the Whois database for the domain owner (and not the administrative and technical contact email addresses). The solution only costs $4.95/year per domain, but in my honest opinion, I think there is a lot more to lose here than comes at first glance. Sure, you need to minimize the spam and silly requests you get from users, but at what cost? What if you lose some prospective partners or even clients? Is it worth it?
