While ICANN’s agreements protect registrants from potential spam, many GoDaddy customers still express concern about their personal name, address, and phone number being so readily available online. For website owners who would prefer to keep such information private, GoDaddy offers Domain Privacy protection, so that when people do a WHOIS search on your domain, we replace your personal information with proxy information (check out the difference). When we do this, your domain name is still yours, but now people won’t be able to discover your personal information through a simple WHOIS lookup.
Furthermore, if you’re a web developer, you have an important obligation to your clients to offer them a complete sense of privacy and protection, no matter the scope of your project. We have some great tips on bolstering both privacy and security for your client base.
