WHOIS is an online directory where unique domain names are stored with all the information about their registrars. According to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) you must register your domain name in the WHOIS database so that your information will be publicly visible to everyone who is interested in checking domain names for expiration dates, for transferring ownership or for criminal activity investigation.
SOFTHOSTS thought about registrars who want to keep their personal information private and so two options of listing are now available:
Public WHOIS Database Listing
All your personal information: name, address, phone number, website hosting IP address and host name, email address, domain name expiration date will be displayed to everyone who searches the WHOIS database listing. It's free and is always available to the public.
Private WHOIS Database Listing
You never know how your information will be used by others, so it's advisable you take measures of precautions and get a private domain name registration . When your website is searched in the WHOIS listings, we will replace your domain name information with our own formal information, and thus you will be protected from spammers, hackers or data miners.
