Reclaiming Domain Privacy

One of the issues that’s gotten increasingly troublesome recently has been the increasingly more aggressive domain registration spam and scams. As I wrote earlier this year, it’s gotten to the point where companies are calling our clients soon after sign-up pretending to work for Reclaim and asking for credit card information. This is unconscionable, and we knew then and there we could no longer make identity protection for domains optional. So, as of January 1, 2017 we will be including ID protect for all new domains, whether registered individually or as part of a hosting account.

There is a cost involved in doing this, so we will be increasing the price of domains to $15 /year, and Student and Faculty shared hosting accounts will be raised to $30 and $50 /year respectively. We understand increasing prices may not be ideal for many, but being able to guarantee Reclaimers’ online identity helps justify the costs while reinforcing an ethos of openness and vigilance when it comes to one’s digital lifebits.

      I believe you can register you domain to a PO Box, but it also publishes phone and email, and it is the email and phone that have been recently abused. ID Protect effects .com, .org, and .net. Search TLDs like .ca have domain privacy built in (though it is a bit more expensive at $15 versus $12), but the 3 big ones for us don’t, which makes it an issue.

        Thanks, partner is half after a PO box for mailchimp stuff and I pondered if a collective PO box could solve a lot of ownership stuff, but that may sound socialist

        Then again, you’ve been in Europe a while now
