Public Domain Name Registration Information

In accordance with the Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), the following domain name registrant information is published in a public WHOIS database by our registrar service, NSI:

* Name
* Address
* City
* State/Province
* Country
* Country Code
* Postal Code
* Phone Number
* Email

Clients that register a new domain name through enter this data on Step 3, Domain Name Registration Information, during the setup process for a new email service. ICANN requires domain name "owners" to maintain legitimate registrant information to possess a domain name in good standing.

Clients that are concerned about privacy should establish alternate contact information under their legal name. For example, a Post Office Box can be used as an alternate mailing address from one's place of business or residence.

Clients should use caution when using third party domain "proxy" services that require clients to change their registrant information to that of the proxy service. Doing so technically transfers the domain name "ownership" to the proxy service.

Clients should also beware of NSI's "Private Registration" service. Clients that still wish to subscribe to NSI's Private Registration service may do so by transferring their domain name to a standalone NSI account.
