Who is WHOIS Privacy for?

In some cases it can be beneficial to have your details publicly visible via WHOIS. For example, if you are an online business, being open with your details helps build trust and credibility.

However, if you run a blog, hobbyist or non-ecommerce transacting site, having your information open for all to see is often unnecessary. By hiding your details you shield yourself from unwanted attention from spammers, scammers and telemarketers who've been known to scour the WHOIS database for email addresses and other details.
