Who is…

This post is for all those bloggers like me who have their own domain and are oblivious to the fact that their personal information are plastered in the world wide web.

Yesterday, I was asking kuya/Br. Vince about this website wherein you can see information about the domain and its owner. It is called WHOIS, but we both lost the link to it and I am so lazy to google it, I just discarded the idea.

Then, I chance upon this website Smart PageRank SEO Tools that has a WHOIS in the list. Yey! I immediately checked Sasha-says and was annoyed to see my personal information I entered when I registered this domain. It was in my mind to check this one before but always forgets about it. I immediately contacted BigSkyMedia to ask if there is a way to remove/hide my personal information. And good thing it was acted on immediately. Kunsabagay mabait kasi ang BigSkyMedia talaga. Isang text or email lang okay na.

So check your cpanels, Ferdz of BigSkyMedia told me you can change to ‘private’ these information, so as to hide it even when others check WHOIS. Mine was changed to private and I checked this morning, it was tagged as such already.

There are people out there with nothing else to do but play pranks on other people. Saka your full name, address and telephone numbers (landline and cellphone) are listed there. You don’t want that in the hands of psychos right?

  • i was thinking about this when i checked on WHOIS … kaso di pa ako nkabili ng domain nun.
    thanks sa info, sis.
    sige, will check asap!

    enjoy the week! πŸ™‚

  • Good evening sis sasha…

    this is the reason why I opted for the Private Registration for all my domain names which list Domains By Proxy’s name instead of my own personal info…

    may fee nga lang sa akin…pero okay na yun because you’re right marami talaga wackos sa net…isa na ako doon he! he! πŸ˜‰ take care…xoxo.

  • hayan solve na probs mo πŸ˜€ sa aki’y wala naman kasing problema, πŸ™‚

  • Kyels

    I’ve checked mine before … But hopefully those psychos will not disturb us!

  • This is a good tip if I ever get my own domain. Thanks Sasha!

  • Thanks for this info sha. take care.

  • I checked mine and thanks goodness bluehost doesn’t give away my information. bravo to them. thanks for the tip !

  • Galing naman ng BigSkyMedia if they did it for free. With Yahoo, I pay extra for that privacy feature. Bale nadodoble halos yung cost ng domain.

  • You are so right. There are a lot of loonies out there who are up to no good, and you never know what they would do next. Good thing you found out about that WHOIS. Smart move, Shassy.

    Take care.

  • Hi SASHA!

    private reg is always the best way to go… for your protection…

    1and1.com is free private reg, but isn’t offered in Pinas…

  • lol! paano ako magkaka bf kung ipa privateko yung info ko? πŸ™‚
    wahehehehehe wala lang πŸ™‚ okey lang sa akin kasi hindi na yun ang info ko e πŸ™‚

  • thanks for the info. im sure everyone who has a domain and who wants one would have this info useful. ahihi.

  • Girl, you know what? I learned a long LONG time ago that I had to keep all of my information private. There are actually HACKERS who take your whois information and try to call into your registrar and steal your domain. I’m not even kidding. Every time I register a new domain, I always make it private. Otherwise stalkers could have all of my information and come knocking on my door or calling. Who wants that? NOT ME! Glad you made yours private. It’s safest that way. :p

  • yehey! private na rin ako! thanks ferdz!

  • ack. I hate that. I don’t even like my bday to be found on the net nga eh. hehe.
