When you register a domain with any registrar, your personal information is automatically entered into a public directory often used by hackers and spammers to compile mailing lists and steal domains. Tomattos domain privacy offers to keep your personal details safely hidden.
Tomatto’s privacy partner, Domains by Proxy®, protects you from hackers, hijackers, and data miners by replacing your name, address and other details in the public WHOIS directory with its business address and phone number.
To make sure legitimate customers and business partners can find you, Privacy & Business Protection includes an online business card. This listing features a map to your store, description, phone numbers.
Thieves who hijack domains tend to use them to carry out scams, deliver spam and spread malware. Privacy Protection can hide the personal information hackers need to take control of your domains.
The WhoIs directory is a searchable list of every single domain name registered in the world, including the names, addresses and other details of the people who own them.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires accredited registrars to publish this information in the WhoIs listing as soon as the domain is registered.
The short answer is yes. The name, address and phone number you submit when you register your domain is publicly accessible by anyone at any time. This may be good news if you have a domain name you’d like to sell. Or it may be bad news if your name and contact info is collected by a spammer, hacker or cyber-criminal.
Privacy and Business Protection includes a “virtual business card” designed to drive traffic to your website and increase the reach of your existing efforts without sacrificing your privacy.
Instead of displaying your personal information in the WhoIs database for all to see, our partner Domains By Proxy will replace it with its own. The domain will belong to you – except now, you and Domains By Proxy® will be the only ones who know it.
Privacy Protection through Domains By Proxy gives you full control over your domain names while protecting you from identity theft, domain-related spam and domain name hijacking.
Domains By Proxy even creates a private and unique email address for each domain name. You get to decide if you want the email forwarded to you, filtered, or completely blocked.
