When you register a domain, the details that you give are added to the global WhoIs database. However the database is publicly available - meaning that if you didn't select "Privacy" when you bought your domain, your details can be downloaded by everybody in the whole wide World.
A recent trend, especially with celebrities, is to snap up your baby's domain name. Some parents have taken the trend even further - actually looking for available domains before choosing their little one's name! Although this is probably a little bit extreme, there are some valid reasons to consider purchasing the domain to safeguard your child's digital identity.
If you recently purchased a domain, you may have noticed a significant increase in the amount of spam you receive (you may have even received some phone calls). You are probably wondering where on earth these spammers got your details from. Unfortunately this seems to have become really quite common. In this post we are going to take a look at why this is happening, as well as what you can do about it.
