It is really up to you. Every registered domain name includes the name, address and other personal information of the person who owns it. A simple WHOIS lookup can reveal this information.
If you do not require the extra privacy, having your name directly
associated with your website can function like a business card. This
feature can be particularly valuable for businesses,
but also, unfortunately, it is equally valuable to spammers
and other users with malicious intent.
WHOIS privacy is a choice to seriously consider for the following reasons:
As mentioned above, having your personal and business information publicly available online can make you the target of unsolicited attention. Whether it is spammers crawling WHOIS directories for emails, telemarketers, hackers, internet trolls, or etc. Protecting your information does not necessarily entail masking all your contact info, but it gives you control over which information you choose to share publicly.
For users living in unsafe countries where crime rates is high and freedom of expression is severely curtailed, having their websites privately registered can be lifesaving.
If you reserved a domain for a startup or an idea but have yet to launch the website, personal info acquired through WHOIS lookups can be very revealing. Many individuals have made astronomical profits by “domain speculation” and Domain-Squatting. Additionally, typos or domain name variations have been known to be used in duping customers into phishing operations or towards copycat sites.
