One of the biggest disadvantages to domain privacy protection is that it becomes a daunting task to transfer your domain name. For you to transfer your domain name, you’ll have first to deactivate domain privacy protection. You will also go through a long process to get your domain name transferred. Also, in this day and age where cases of online scams are abundant, traditional and digital media are continually teaching customers how to look up the authenticity of websites through the WhoIs database. That means if you have activated the domain privacy protection, customers will not be able to access your details, and they will think it’s a red flag. However, you can always take steps to ensure that customers don’t get to the stage of checking your WhoIs record by providing comprehensive contact details on your site. Make sure to include numerous ways for the customers to get in touch with you, such as phone number, postal email, fax, and email. It’s also a good idea to have social media pages like Facebook and Twitter to ensure that customers can easily contact you.
