Hostway's New WhoisProtector Lite Protects Your Online Identity

Hostway has expanded its line of products to protect customers' private information with the release of WhoisProtector Lite.

WhoisProtector Lite, a product offered exclusively by Hostway, is an inexpensive way for domain name owners to keep their private contact information out of the hands of phishers, identity thieves, telemarketers and scam artists.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires registrars to list the name, address and email address of the owner of every domain name in a central database. This database is available to anyone with Internet access.

WhoisProtector Lite blocks the name and all contact information in the Whois database except the administrative and technical contact email addresses. Domain owners can protect their private information while providing a contact email for business considerations for $4.95/year per domain.

Hostway's line of products also includes WhoisProtector Ultra for domain name owners seeking complete privacy plus spam protection. This product replaces all of the domain name owner's information, including the email address, with WhoisProtector's information.

To learn more, visit the domain name section of www.hostway.com.
