Namecheap

The domain registrar, Namecheap, has expertly provided its customers with more than two decades of excellent service as a leading domain registration, technology and web hosting company. Beginning today, almost all new domain purchases or renewals will now include a Whois Privacy subscription free of charge. This will allow customers to hide any of their personal information from public view in the Whois database.

The free Whois Privacy protection can be accessed and activated immediately after a domain name has been purchased.

The exclusion to this protection is domain names that do not currently support privacy. Whois Privacy protects personal data from being displayed or accessed worldwide in public databases by concealing data and replacing it with generic information.

The application used a security flaw in the site that Facebook had been aware of but did not fix. Khanna promoted the app on Medium, Reddit, and Twitter. Within 3 days the company disabled the security flaw, asked Khanna to take down the app, and withdraw his internship. For a Harvard student working in his dorm room, the move was quite ironic.
