How to Remove Personal Information from DomainBigData

Do you have a blog site or website? Have you purchased a custom (self hosted) domain name for the blog site or website from a hosting company? Or maybe you purchased a domain name for somebody instead? Now, have you ever typed any of the private information submitted to the hosting company e.g. name or private email address, on the google search engine? Did the result obtained from the search come with your personal private information? This article is for you, as it shows you How to Remove Personal Information from DomainBigData.

Or, are you just planning to buy yourself a domain name from a hosting company? Have you discovered and decided which hosting company you want to buy your domain name from? If yes, this article is equally for you.

Does it matter if my website is new or old and have been for ages? My domain expired recently and so I no longer own or operate the site. You all need to read this and take action.

Let me hint you here that when you purchase a domain name, you will also have your data passed on to “DomainBigData” who will then make your information public on the internet.  This is very true unless you had subscribed to ‘ID Protect’ service with your hosting company when buying your domain name.

What is DomainBigData?

In short, “DomainBigData is “a big database of domains and whois records.” The database contains records for all the domain names registered with hosting companies worldwide. The records include all personal private information associated with every domain name.

The “whois records” is a collection of the domain name registration information. The registration information include all the personal details you submitted to your hosting company when you purchased/registered your domain name.

What Information does DomainBigData make public about You?

The information are the name, the email address, phone and/or mobile number and the physical contact address you submitted to your hosting company.

You do not have anything to worry about, if you had purchased ID Protect service along with your domain and hosting package.

They do not need to contact you before your domain ”whois” information are passed on to them. And you may probably not be aware of it unless somehow you come across it on the web.

As at the time of writing this article, ”DomainBigData”, as reported on their website, already have about ”458,894,464” domain names in their database, and are still counting day by day. You would agree with me that some of the people whose information make a part of the above figure are not even aware of this.

I know how worrisome it could be to have one’s private personal information on the internet. The fear of who might grab my private personal information is one. The fear of what someone might do with my private personal information is another. And the list may go on like that.

The solution to this issue is either you go on and purchase ID Protect service or you follow a few steps to remove your information from their database.

To purchase ID Protect service, your hosting company should be able to help with that, if you contact them.

You can double check by using the search engine to see if you can still find your information.

Having said all that, it may interest someone to know that it’s fine to have your information public with DomainBigData if those information are direct business links. This may let potential clients discover your business and you know what that means for you. Having your business email address, business contact number and business location as your physical contact address would probably bring you more good than otherwise.
