I am sure most of you know about the latest controversy she is in, and a lot of you probably have a say on this. but this made me think.
Outside of the Kris Aquino-James Yap controversy.
What if your website or your entire digital life would be wiped out by hackers?
I mean, it happens.
And it must be horrifying.
Because these hackers can systematically lock you out of your website, your e-mail, your social media accounts, and even your iPhone and other digital gadgets.
One of the easy ways they can get your vital information is by performing a whois search on your personal domain.
And one of the ways you can protect yourself is getting your own private domain registration.
What is private domain registration?
Registering your domain name requires that the contact details related to the name should be published in a Whois database which is publicly accessible. Whois provides information related with domain names and IP addresses which could include the contact information of the registrant.
Which means your personal data, including your e-mail, telephone/cellphone numbers and even your home address will be open to the public.
You will be vulnerable to calls from telemarketers and spam mails. And it is horrible to even think about strangers knowing your home address.
Private domain registration will mask any personal and vital information other than those required by domain name registries. When someone will look up for you domain name, they won’t see any personal contact information.
Giving you privacy and peace of mind.
