FAQ's On ID Protect
International rules require that valid contact information-known as Whois—is available for every domain name. ID Protect cloaks your identity and provides proxy contact information in the Whois.

ID Protect also reduces spam. In your cloaked Whois information, we provide a proxy email address that changes several times a year. We forward email sent to the proxy address, but when the proxy address changes, spam sent to the old address bounces.

Rules established by ICANN, the governing body for domain names, require valid contact information be publicly available for all domain names. ID Protect provides valid contact information that satisfies these requirements without exposing your personal contact information.
Domain name Whois displays name, address, and email address. Anyone anywhere can search the Whois database through any search engine and many other web sites. ID Protect provides proxy information instead of your personal contact information. Parties who want to contact you use the proxy information, and we forward to you.
Domain name Whois is a principal source of email addresses for spammers. If your domain name has ID Protect, we change the Whois email address several times a year. Spammers harvest and use one Whois email address, but once we change it that source of spam is cut off.
No. The domain must be registered with us in order to use ID Protect. ID Protect cannot be used with our DNS Hosting.
