Domain Privacy

After weeks of relentless searches and constant brainstorms you finally found the perfect domain name. Yes, you believe this is the "one", the domain of the century, the crown jewel, and the rarest of finds. It was hidden away deep off the coast in the forest of .com's perfectly preserved under mountains of creative word combinations waiting for you to give it the breath of life. You quickly go to to register your additional domain all the while looking over your shoulder making sure that no one attempts to steal your newly found treasure. Once registered you tuck it safely inside your horde of domains. You are waiting for the perfect economic weather to launch your domain off the port of obscurity and direct its course into the deep waters of hosting. The only problem is that in your excitement to charter new waters you forgot to protect yourself from pirates. Yes, there are scammers, spammers, fraudsters, hackers, thieves, and trolls out there that want to steal and plunder upon your treasured .com. You soon realize that without provocation you are under attack because you failed to protect yourself by adding domain privacy.
