keep your personal contact information safe. So that your personal information is not out for
everyone to get access to by choosing this your information will show site grounds
information instead of yours. Without domain privacy more than likely you will get a good
bit of telemarketers and marketers bugging you trying to sell all their services to you

malware on your site or if you've been hacked it'll let you know if this happens all these extra
