Will my name and contact information be publicly available?

Yes, but only in the context of your domain name registration. ProExe does not give away, rent, sell, volunteer, or otherwise provide customer information to third parties except as required by law.

Information about who is responsible for domain names is publicly available to allow rapid resolution of technical problems and to permit enforcement of consumer protection, trademark, and other laws. The registrar will make this information available to the public via the "whois" system. Many registrars also have a web-based interface to that system. Owners of .com and .net domains may register "by proxy", thus hiding their personal contact information from the public. This depends on the registrar. Registrars that offer such a service generally charge a premium, just like phone companies charge extra for unlisted numbers.

The information that you enter should be accurate, particularly as regards the name/company name of the domain's owner and the e-mail addresses of all contacts. Those items in particular are vital for the resolution of disputes and for the receipt of renewal and other important notices. If you change your principal email address, make sure that you change your domain's contact info as well. We see many cases in which customers have their domain's registration expire because they left an old email address in their contact information and never received the renewal notice. Don't be one of them!
