Domain Privacy Protection obscures your contact and personal information associated with your website, hiding it from public eye – especially spammers – and instead providing the contact information from your host or registrar. Since the CAN-SPAM act in 2003, you are required to provide accurate contact information anytime you register a site. The following hosts have domain privacy protection available when you register domains through them. You can also view them by hosts with free domain privacy protection.

Is Domain Privacy Protection Right For You?

When you register a domain, you must provide personal information, including:

  • Your Full name
  • Your address
  • Your phone number
  • Your email

This information is available to everyone who does a WHOIS lookup on your site. Everyone. Small business owners, especially people working where they live, can greatly benefit from domain privacy protection. While you’ll still need to provide your information to the web host or registrar, their information will become public instead of yours.

For small business owners, domain privacy can prevent spammers from contacting you and flooding your inbox with junk mail. Larger businesses have ways to field these sorts of emails with filters, but smaller business can end up with important emails being mixed with trash. For people who work from home, the reasons for keeping your details hidden from public view are numerous.

Using A PO Box Address Instead Of Privacy Protection

For people working from their homes, using a PO box instead of your physical address will meet CAN-SPAM requirements while hiding your address from WHOIS lookups. That said, there are two points that makes this approach less than ideal:

  1. Chances are – especially if you’re a homeowner – that spammers already have access to your home address. Using a PO box will not remove that information from public knowledge.
  2. This still leaves your email information available. It is possible to use an alternate email, but online directory may begin to associate this email with your business.
