How to protect a domain name and IP address

Registering a domain name rarely takes a lot of time nowadays and it turns out to be quite simple to create your own website, which is used by attackers.

Information skills are a tool for a successful business

Заполняя формуляры нередко приходиться оставлять свои настоящие имена, фамилии, контактные телефоны, электронные адреса. Это необходимо на случай угона домена, с другой стороны данные пользователя попадают в открытые источники информации. Лишь некоторые вебмастера позволяют себе указывать фейковые данные при регистрации, но в таких случаях проверка доменного имени потенциальным компаньоном может привести к отказу от сотрудничества.When filling out the forms, you often have to leave your real names, surnames, contact numbers, email addresses. This is necessary in case of domain hijacking; on the other hand, user data gets into open sources of information. Only a few webmasters allow themselves to use fake data during registration, but in such cases, checking the domain name by a potential partner may lead to a refusal to cooperate.

In other cases, the full name of the site owner is determined using special programs posted on the Internet for free. Basic information that can be obtained about the resource:

The interested user monitors dozens of domains or subdomains for timely payment. If the real owner, for some reason, did not timely pay for the hosting, a third party can take advantage of this oversight and capture the site quite legally. Interestingly that you don't even need to know the owner's real name for this.

When a person does not use anonymity on the Internet, it is possible to get the owner's full name and contact information. After that, you can agree in a more civilized way on the transfer of rights to the domain or subdomain of interest (restructuring is possible in both directions, adding or removing the latter).

Thus, the main task performed by open sources of information is to contribute to the civilized solution of commercial issues within the network.

Accordance of the quality of the subdomain to the requirements of the situation

Wishing to purchase a site, the future owners want the domain name to be verified according to the TIC and PR data. Such data is necessary for the subsequent optimization of the main portal, where the purchased resource may turn out to be a subdomain.

Using search engines, you can track the appearance of a recently registered site (your own or someone else's). Determine the number of requests from third-party resources to each of its subdomains. This is necessary for those who participate in various affiliate programs and want to control the monetization of traffic from them.

Also, during registration, the search engine robot may encounter errors in accessing the site, moreover, identify vulnerabilities. Some of them need to be corrected in order to obtain the desired status on the network, some remain in the presence of programs, which for sure affects the reputation of the resource in the eyes of the search engine.

On the Internet, you can find information on how to bypass the severity of robots, block from them, and regulate the access speed. In addition to this, mobile emulation will help deceive the system, create the required anonymity, while retaining the management of your own resource for yourself.


This resource is focused on collecting information using free programs, websites, mobile applications, etc. The main goal is to help people find resources that make it possible to get information for free.
