Now that you’re new MLM company is off the ground and running with a corporate site as well as replicated sites for members of your downline, something you should do is separate your personal information from any domain names or websites that are operating as a result of your business’ existence. You might ask: “Why the need for this separation?” The answer is very simple, to keep your personal information private.Currently the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) requires the following to be made available for non-private domains: mailing address, phone number and e-mail address (All of which can be used for malicious intent in the wrong hands) through the internet WHOIS directory. What that translates to is that if you haven’t registered your domain as private anyone that cares to can look up your information with little to no effort and incidentally former members of your company can use this information for negative purposes if they so chose.
What’s the answer? For a slightly larger fee you can register your domain as private and have your information kept secret and secure to protect yourself, your family, and your business from spam and scams online. When your domain is registered as private your personal information is no longer available from a simple WHOIS lookup.
Think I’m just paranoid? Lookup a domain you own and see what you find!
