Our Patented Login Security Agent

Friday, September 19th, 2014

As an ICANN accredited registrar, we take the security on your account very seriously. The measures we take include

  • Having any page where sensitive information you provide is SSL encrypted and behind a login session.
  • Optional two factor authentication, where an app on your smart phone or tablet provides 6 digit code you add to your regular password. A new code is generated every thirty seconds.
  • A strength indicator rates your password when you create or update a new password on our system.

Whois Privacy and Why It Matters.

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

Every registered domain name has a Whois record which will contain contact for the registrant (owner), administrator, billing and technical contact.  For each of these contact positions (they can be the same), the Whois record will contain:

  • individual’s first and last name
  • organization’s name
  • postal address
  • phone number and optional fax number
  • email address

Additionally, the Whois record will contact contact information for the domain’s registrar, and the domain’s creation date, expiry date, name server names and IP addresses, the domain’s status and the date the record was last updated.
