Why do you require my name, address, and phone number when signing up?

The short answer is the software we use requires these fields for payment regardless of whether you're a free customer or not. We do not share or sell your personal information to any third party. The only exception is for domain registrations and transfers we are required to provide the registrant's name, address, and phone number to establish them as the owner of the domain. If you do not want this information available in WHOIS lookups, we offer free ID protection with our domain registrations--just click the "ID protection" checkbox when purchasing your domain and all of your personal information will be kept private in all WHOIS lookups.
