    4 Tips for Protecting Your Domain Names

    Before I go into details about protecting domain name, at first, you should first know that there is no business operating under the sun that has got no risks. In fact, our domains are under danger all the time and it is really necessary to take some measures to keep these domains safe.

    Through this article, I will show you 4 tips for protecting your domain name:


    1. Private Whois Service

    By using a private registration, your personal information will not appear in the WHOIS directory, making it more difficult for someone to hack into your domain registration account.

    When registering your new domain name, if a domain name registration company provides the free private whois service, you should remember to select “private” registration.

    There are some registrars such as netFirms offer free private registration service, but many registrars will charge you anywhere from $1 to $10 per year for this service.

    2. Check WHOIS Information

    It is always a good idea to check your domains’ information in the WHOIS directory on a somewhat regular basis. I check all of mine on a monthly basis, for example. Be sure you are still registered as the owner and that the contact information is still correct.

    3. Notification

    Be sure to set up your account with your chosen registrar so that you are notified anytime a change is made to your account. You can set this up so that you are called or emailed.

    4. Lock Down Option

    This is the safest way to protect your domain name from hacked.

    As we all know, most registrars offer a free service that locks your account. In the event someone tries to make changes to your registration information, they won’t be able to until your account or specific domain is unlocked – either by email verification or via telephone.

    By following these 4 tips here, you can protect your domain names from hacked easily and usefully.

    Re - Private Whois

    If you hide your information through private whois; most brokers like sedo will ask you to get it opened before they can accept your domains. What private whois does is that it will not let hackers to get your details. Moreso you can not know if your domains are stolen, if you have private whois on. As a Domainers it is not advisable to use private whois, so that end user can get your contact details; incase they are interested in your domain. The best is to register your domain with a reliable Registrar, if you have your domains with a secured Registrar, you have nothing to be afraid of any more. Cheers.

    Don't mention, that is the fact behind it. Just make sure you register your domains with the reliable Registrar. Especially when you have very valuable gems. Cheers.

    I agree with you. That is always good idea to protect whois against spammers. In any case you need to understand that will never protect you against law
