Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) June 2, 2005
LaneChange.Net, a complete Internet services solutions provider, announces a new privacy service that protects the identity of domain name owners by replacing publicly accessible registrant data with generic contact information thereby making it more difficult for Spammers, telemarketers and other undesirable third parties to capture private domain owner information.
The Whois Privacy Service replaces existing owner contact information with generic information that directs inquiries to a special web site which then captures legitimate contact requests and forwards them to the real domain owner. Owners retain full control over their domains at all times, avoid exposure to excessive Spam, telephone or letter mail marketing and are alerted to contact requests.
"When someone registers a domain name, sensitive information such as the owner's name, address, phone number and email address are placed in a publicly accessible database known as the Whois Database," said Robert Schwartz, President of LaneChange.net. "This information is often accessed by Spammers, telemarketers or others and used for undesirable and sometimes illegal purposes. With this new service, domain name owners can now protect their sensitive personal contact information and retain complete control over their domain name for a minimal annual cost of $5.99 per year."
The Whois Privacy Service is available for the following top level domains: .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .cc and .tv for clients with domain names registered through LaneChange.net. Whois Privacy Service is available to all domain owners by transferring domains to LaneChange.net.
