I have registered a Domain Name through Yola and realise that all my personal details are now accessible to anyone that searches for that domain name through companies like LCN.com. How do I privatise my personal details?
Thanks

We can definitely enable domain privacy on your domain - it will cost $9.95 per year and we will be able to send a PayPal payment request to you. Once payment has been received, domain privacy will be enabled.

Please could you let me know if you would like to go ahead and which domain you would like to enable domain privacy on. You can email support@yola.com.

As a general question why when you buy domains do your personal details become available? Seems like an excuse to make money by domain registrars to me.

Hi James,

Actually the rules are set forth by ICANN. Domain registrars simply act as gatekeepers for customers who don't want their information public by filtering out spam and unsolicited direct mail, and forwarding only important messages and mail pertaining to their domain.

Fair Enough

I think with UkReg at http://www.ukreg.com/register-domains... you get free domain privacy on .co.uk domains.
