As with any discussion, it’s good to first touch on what it is we’re talking about: What is domain Vietnam WhoIs and if it is necessary.
- What is domain privacy protection?
WHOIS protection/ Domain privacy will hide the domain name registrant’s personal information from the public WHOIS database.
WHOIS is an organization which manages all data regarding domain registration. All registrant details are considered public information, in addition to the name servers and other simple details regarding domain name registrations.
If somebody knows a registered Vietnam domain name, then they can enter it into any WHOIS search tool on the website to get this public information back. With WHOIS protection in place, all of this information becomes masked.
This will hides your personal name, address, phone, email, and business name. Instead, a generic registrar-generated information set is displayed.
- Why you need private domain registration
When you buy a domain, your registrar is required by ICANN to enter the contact information of the website owner. Some kind of information has to be submitted. So unless you want to protect your personal data, it goes public.
Privacy protection hides personal contact information from complete strangers. This’s pretty straightforward and is one of the most popular reasons domain owners choose privacy protection.
Almost everyone has the ability to access the internet, meaning that almost anyone could potentially have access to your phone number, mailing address and email address. If a web includes debatable or hotly-contested topics, it can be a safe move to make Vietnam domain registrar’s personal contact details difficult to obtain to help avoid undesired contact from strangers.
