Private Domain Registration 1and1 – Your Questions…

Ken asks…

Is this normal when registering Domain name with 1and1?

About 2 days ago I registered a domain name with 1and1. At the end of registration process, a message displayed which told I would receive an email containing my needed information to log in my account within 24 hours.

Today I received an email from which states:

“In order to authenticate, and activate your account, we will ask that
you provide us with a copy of your passport, or government issued photo
ID. To avoid added delays, please keep file sizes under 5megs, colour
images are preferred, and only gov’t issued documents from the country
listed in your address are accepted as we need to verify both identity
and place of residence.”

I want to know if it is normal? In fact I would not like to send these very private information to theme. What do I do?


admin answers:

I wouldn’t think you would need to :s When I registered a domain on 123 reg, It didn’t ask me for anything like that and if it is NEEDED I would presume all domain registers would ask for it.
Who is the email from? Whats the address? I would probably ignore it and see what happens, if they delete the account, go with another domain host. Sounds like that would be safer.

Your Questions About Private Domain Registration Godaddy

Sandra asks…

Domains By Proxy security?

I’ve just registered two domains with GoDaddy. I used the private registration to hide my personal info. The domains are going to be used for an adult oriented website. The site will be totally legit, but as a single mother working from home, I want to hide my identity for my personal safety. How likely is it that someone determined enough can get past the private registration?

admin answers:

I think private registration hide the contact information. You can use a fake name to register the domain names.
