What is Whois?

When you register a domain name, you are required to file documentation that links the domain to you. This way, nobody can steal your domain from you. Think of it as a patent for your domain name.

WhoIs is the lookup of these details, and it can lead to unwanted results. For example, if your details were public, anonymous users could release your address and send you pizzas or random things in the mail. They could also sell your phone number to telemarketers. See where this is going?

 

However, there is a way to protect your personal information from the wrong hands!

When registering domain names, most companies offer WhoIs identity protection, which registers the domain under the company’s information. Host Infuser offers a free domain name with your website, complete with WhoIs identity protection.
