Common Issues with Publicly Registered Domain Names

By default, the information of your registered Domain Name is set to public status in compliance to Registry policies. Without Domain Name Privacy, information like your name, email address, phone number, business or home address are available online via any WHOIS database.

Common Issues

When your personal or business details are public, issues arise. Below are the most common issues experienced by Registrants with publicly registered Domain Names:

  1. You get a lot of spam emails.
  2. An interested party of your Domain Name may contact you.
  3. You get random phone calls offering all kinds of services.
  4. Your competitors can research all about you.
  5. You get fraudsters and stalkers.

Whether your Domain is registered with Vodien or with another Register, these issues are the same because all Registrars are required to follow each specific Domain Registry’s policies.

What to Do

We offer Domain Privacy services, which hides your personal or business details by replacing it with our business information. This allows us to protect you from fraudulent activities and unwanted emails/calls while still complying with Registry policies. Once you enable Domain Privacy, the service will take at least 24 hours to completely propagate across all WHOIS databases.

IMPORTANT: Not all Registries allow Domain Privacy as they are also bound by country-specific policies. You may contact us first to inquire about your Domain Name.

Please do not hesitate to contact our 24/7 Singapore or Australia Support Team if you have further questions.
