What Does MCN Do for Domain Name Service?

 


MCN Whois Privacy

MCN Whois Privacy protects your domain name and your  private information from scammers for just $4.99 per year per domain.  Domain name information including the name, addresses, e-mails and phone numbers of domain name owners are entered into a publicly accessible database called the Whois database. Whois Privacy masks Administrative, Billing and Technical contacts for your domain with generic information within public WHOIS databases and protects you from telemarketers and undesired third parties who may try and trick you into giving up your domain name. Any inquiries regarding your domain name will be forwarded to you by our registrar and you retain full ownership of your domain. Some of the big name players in the domain market are charging $8 or $9 for this service, but we're charging just $4.99 per year per domain. To get Whois Privacy on your domain just request it when buying a new domain or send an e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and request it for an existing domain name.
