When you register a domain on the Internet, your personal data is automatically entered in a public directory, the so-called Whois directory, and can be viewed by everyone. Unfortunately, this is often used by spammers and hackers to create mailing lists.
As a result, many domain owners receive unwanted phone calls and spam mails through their published data. We at checkdomain believe that your identity is only our concern and protect you from misuse of your data by making your e-mail address and telephone number anonymous.
In domain data protection, we replace your personal e-mail address and telephone number in the public Whois directory with a CAPTCHA-secured e-mail address, which is individually generated by us. To ensure that trusting customers and business partners can still contact you, we will automatically forward serious contact requests to your e-mail address.

In the "land register of the Internet" the respective contact data of the domain holder are stored for all domains is deposited. The Whois directory is publicly accessible and accessible to everyone. The display of the personal data enables direct contact to be made with the person in charge of a domain. The entry in the Whois directory is prescribed by ICANN and is done automatically with registration of the domain.
Your personal data including e-mail address and telephone number are publicly accessible to everyone in the Whois directory. Spammers and mail bots often use these entries to create mailing lists for email spam or phone lists for annoying marketing calls. With the private domain registration we protect your most sensitive data as domain owner.

Of course, you remain the legal owner of the domain and retain all rights around the domain - only your data is now anonymized.
If you activate the private domain registration for a domain, your personal e-mail address will be removed and an individual CAPTCHA-secured e-mail address will be replaced. If you receive messages via this e-mail address, the following process starts: All mails sent by the registry of your domain will be automatically forwarded to your e-mail address. All requests from other senders will first receive an automatic reply mail from our system, if the CAPTCHA contained in it is solved, this e-mail will be forwarded to you. delinquent Attempts to contact us or spam mails are thus blocked directly by our system.
You can activate the private domain registration for existing domains of your domain portfolio at any time via the customer area. Please note that your personal information may have been sent to spam mailing lists during the period when the private registration was disabled. It is therefore possible that you may still receive spam mails or telephone calls for advertising purposes.
