In the World Wide Web, what is used extensively is the domain name. This domain name belongs to an individual or a company. By registering a domain name our data may be public. Do we want this to happen? Have we ever thought about it?
The security of our data is very important, we must take care where we give our data. First of all, by making a WHOIS in a domain name we can see enough data for the owner of it. Below we will see what is the domain name id protection.
Domain name id protection is the process by which the personal data of the registrar is encrypted from the WHOIS public database. WHOIS manages all the data related to domain name registration. The information given during the registration is considered to be public, in addition to the domain nameservers as well as the date of registration, renewal and expiration of each domain name. In this way by knowing a domain name is easy to search on a WHOIS searching tool and have access to all public information. However, if domain name id protection is enabled, all this information will not be available on the WHOIS searching tool. The domain name id protection includes the hiding of your name, address, phone, email and business name. Instead, a group of information such as domain nameservers as well as the date of registration, renewal and expiration are displayed. See below how someone may see the information of a domain name.
