1) How does ID Protect help reduce spam?

Due to our Registrar's dynamic email system, your visible email address is constantly changing, so while it is being harvested and redistributed, it will change and the previous address will no longer work for the spammer. The Domain Privacy Protection Service (an affiliate of our Registrar, eNom) secures and maintains your real email address on file so you receive important information regarding your domain.


2) What if I need to prove ownership of a domain?

You can open a support ticket with us to temporarily disable the ID Protect service through your domain control panel. We'll turn off the service and then you can ask the verifying party to confirm whois registration details here. Once complete, just update the ticket to turn the ID Protect service back on.


3) What if someone sends something to the mailing address?

For communications received which does not appear to be unsolicited commercial mail, The Domain Privacy Protection Service (an affiliate of our Registrar, eNom) may either forward such communication to you or may attempt to communicate to you a scanned copy of a page of the communication. The Service may elect to not forward to you communications which appear to be unsolicited, or communications which appear to be from your having used the IDP Services as a general mail forwarding service.


4) Are there any charges involved for activating Whois ID Protect?

Yes, there's a minimum fee of USD 8.99 per year will be charged accordingly.
