Website owners

Post to Internet service

Most website owners know that after registering a domain name, ICANN - the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers - requires the registration company to send your name and address, contact phone number, email address, and the expiry date of your domain name together with the appropriate host name and IP address to WHOIS.

WHOIS then publishes all of these details in its online directory. Anyone can search that directory for free, for any purpose and without your consent.

£2.99 a month including 5 page scans

  • 28 day storage included
  • Additional page scans 36p
  • Forwarding letters within the UK at £4.99 plus cost of postage
  • Forwarding of parcels, packets or international letters at £4.99 plus cost of postage

It is possible in some instances to arrange for your name to be withheld from the record, and some registration companies now offer proxy services, which replace your personal details with that of the registration companies. This is a welcome step forward, but such companies usually charge for every domain name which requires the protection of a proxy address, and if you own more than one URL, that can work out to be a very expensive way of keeping your home address private.

ScanMyPost enables you to use our service address as your registered address, so the privacy of your home address can always be protected. If you own several domains, you can use the same address for all of them, saving costly multiple proxy fees. You’ll also be safe in the knowledge that if conventional post is sent to you at the service address, we’ll scan it, let you know by email or by text ant then and post the scan online for you to access securely, anytime, from anywhere in the World.

Key Benefits

  • Avoid having your home address listed on WHOIS
  • Reduce the cost of using proxy address services
  • Keep your home address off mailing lists
  • Help prevent identity fraud
  • Any post received may be viewed online

We keep your conventional post for 28 days then shred it and dispose of the shredded paper confidentially. If you want us to forward the original item, you can ask us to do this for a small packing and administration fee of £4.99 plus cost of postage.

If, like many other website owners, you think you’re unlikely to get more than 10 scanned pages of post per year as a result of being listed on WHOIS, (which we think is probably right for most people), then we recommend you use our Very Light User Service – you don’t have to be a company director to take advantage of this service. Any extra page scans over the 5 per month included within the monthly subscription of just £2.99 rate will be charged at just 36p each.

This gives absolute privacy and real peace of mind at a very affordable price.
