How To Protect Domain Names Not Eligible For Whois Privacy?

You have learned how you can protect your domain names and why it is so important. But do you know that there are some domain extensions that are not available for privacy protection in general? This lesson is going to help you in protecting such domain names.

Domain extensions such as .US .IN .CO.IN .DE, etc, there is a long list. These domains are not available for privacy protection but the ‘Domain Ownership Protection’, a privacy option explained in the previous lesson lets you protect these domain names too.

Domain Ownership Protection is a standalone protection plan available at Sangkrit.net that allows you to guard domain names that aren’t eligible for domain privacy.

How to use Domain Ownership Protection?

The domain name ownership protection is offered at the time you register or transfer your domain name to Sangkrit.net. You simply need to tick the box and it will be added during the transfer or registration process.

Secondly, if you have already registered or transferred your domain name at Sangkrit.net, and you have not added any privacy but now after seeing the benefits you now want to add then follow these steps:

  1. Simply log in to your Sangkrit.net account
  2. Visit the ‘My Products’ page, and click the ‘Domains’ section
  3. You can now add it to the domain name you would like to add privacy to, you will see that there is an option for it.

It also offers other protection options such as protection towards domain name expiration, it holds your domain name if it gets expired or when you turn on the auto-renew option but your credit card expires before the domain renewal date.

Why Protecting Your Domain Name Is Important? How You Can Do It?

Protecting your domain name is an essential part of managing your online presence. Because anyone can obtain your contact information from whois domain records and use it for spamming or attempting illegal domain actions.

But when you protect your domain name, the public view of your information is replaced by proxy addresses so that other people on the internet don’t try to extract information about your domain name. It also offers many more protection options that you will know in this lesson.

What others can see on whois records?

People can see the contact information such as name, email address, and contact number as well as the office or house addresses of the domain registrant, domain owner, technical person, and billing.

And, when you protect your domain name these details are replaced with proxy details so that others won’t be able to misuse your personal information.

Protecting your domain name is not just about keeping your contact information secret but it is also an aid in preventing unauthorized actions on your domain such as making attempts to log in and attempting unauthorized DNS updates. Some domain protection plans at Sangkrit.net also include billing protection, so you don’t lose your domain name in case you forget to renew it or if your credit card expires before auto-renewal.

People would still be able to contact you

Domain protection doesn’t mean that people won’t be able to get in touch with you. The protection plan makes your contact information private and assigns a proxy email address that is used in the whois record so that you can get a private email without revealing your real email address.

How to subscribe to domain name protection?

You are asked to add a domain protection plan at the time you register or transfer any domain name to Sangkrit.net. You can also add domain name protection separately anytime from your Sangkrit.net account product’s page.

There are three types of domain name protection plans you can choose from:

  1. Full Domain Protection: Keeps your personal information private on the internet plus sends you alerts when anyone or you yourself change any domain records such as name servers, etc.
  2. Ultimate Domain Protection: Provides protection of private information as well as protection towards domain expiration which means it holds your domain in case it gets expired and is not renewed on time.
  3. Domain Ownership Protection: This standalone protection works on domain names that are not generally available for privacy. Apart from this, it offers the same protection that is available under the Ultimate Ownership Protection option.

You can anytime change your domain name protection plan which means you can anytime downgrade or upgrade it to avail new features of domain privacy and protection.
