If there is something many of us detest, it is revealing the IP of our web host and the information of a domain ownership. This is why anonymous web hosting is becoming very popular today.
Some people are keen on knowing the hosting information about a certain domain and uses a WhoIs lookup system by typing the name of the domain and all the information of the host is provided, including domain ownership and the date the website was created among others. However, with anonymous web hosting, you can ensure that a person using Whois is given zero information detailing the hosted domain. This is a wonderful way of hiding your sensitive information perhaps from an overzealous competitor or even a hacker.
Since they are privately registered, anonymous domains are booked in the name of a third party, ensuring no one is able to know you own a certain domain or reach you through them; your personal details are not maintained on the web or anywhere for that matter.
While choosing anonymous host providers, it is worth noting that a web host of repute and good standing will never allow illegal activities to take place across their system as a result of this important privacy feature. Anonymity is mostly encouraged and desired by famous individuals who might want to create sites and offer content to reach different people across the world without showing or sharing their identity. They might also want to safeguard the secrets of their trade and company from the rest of the interested world.
Among web hosts offering anonymous hosting, some will ask you to identify yourself prior to receiving anonymous features while others respect your need to remain anonymous right from the start.
Obviously, those who rarely ask customers to identify themselves are very popular today and receive the most business. Some of them are offshore hosting providers as well. These anonymous hosting providers do not ask for your address or name and provide an account with a relationship number that intricately assures that the identity of the customer has not been divulged at all, whether the situation is grave or not. The provider does not have the customerâs details in their record and thus the dangers of the information leaking out by design or accident is not there.
Traits Of Anonymous Provision
The most important trait of any good and popular anonymous hosting provider is that the customerâs privacy is the most important thing. Obviously, you might not want to divulge the customersâ information but a small error could turn out to be disastrous for all the customers if the 100 percent privacy you promised is blown out. No customer will be amused with a slight blunder that removes the lid out of their anonymity.
Anonymous Hosting And Domain Registration
There is a huge demand for private and anonymous private hosting and domain registration in the world today. It is not just reserved to hosting since most web users are also into anonymous browsing to ensuring their details are not phished out. Anonymous domain registration is now possible and as much as it comes with an extra cost, customers are paying for it gladly.
