Why Private Domain Registration is a good thing.

The reason I brought up this subject is just because of the fact that most people who start their very first web blog or website, as they are sometimes referenced as, they all depend on a web hosting company to keep their files and provide incentives to promote their site and even earn money using ads and such. The sad thing is, however, whenever anyone decides to start a blog or personal home page as they used to be called, there are search companies that like to be helpful but often are hurtful, by providing search engine results about the site owner's PID - aka, personal identifiable information, which is only good for hackers and identity thieves.

Whois is an organization that lets you look up a website to find out who they is, or rather who they are, where they live and their telephone number or contact information. This is good for business in some ways but bad for people who just want to have a website so they can put their ideas and thoughts out there on the world wide web to get some attention, feedback and support by sharing their own personal take on things. The fact is, most people who are starting off with a brand new website or personal blog, just don't have a clue about Whois, and don't even understand what a Private Domain is or how to even register their site as a private domain to get protection that is only around a dollar a month to get protected with their domain hosting service.

Yes, I agree, domain privacy is extremely important.

When I first bought a domain from Yahoo I paid extra to hide my identity but with Namecheap it is automatically hidden. 😊

I only wish they did not have to charge an extra dollar a month for me to keep my domain private. You are lucky to have it for free.

Yes. It is a good thing and I am really wanting to connect back to an Ethernet instead of being wireless with my PC. The Ethernet cable is in my opinion, safer than wireless connectivity.

Namecheap gives you free domain privacy for your first year, then it's about $3 a year after that. Well worth it, IMO

You can switch domain providers if you want.
