Receiving so many spammy messages upon registering a domain

Recommended Posts

Right after I bought a new domain using one of my freshly created gmail account, I immediately received so much spammy messages. I wonder if anyone does experience the same thing? I wonder how can I prevent this?

Usually this happens if whois/ID protection is not purchased with the new domain registration. Unfortunately there are individuals out there who have automated the process of looking for newly registered domains, they then scrape the public whois details to obtain the domain owners email, and they'll then spam you with offers for web design, hosting, or other web related services. You can add whois/ID protection to the domain (assuming your TLD supports it) after registration which would prevent your details from being exposed on future whois lookups, if you wanted to do that our billing team can assist through our helpdesk.
