How do spammers get my contact details?

The total prevention of spam emails is impossible. There are so many ways in which spammers can get email addresses without you giving it to them directly. For example, mailing list signup, commenting on a post etc.
One of the easiest way spammers can get access to your email address is through the WHOIS database. This is a public database where anyone (spammers) can look up and find details or data relating a particular domain or IP address. Unfortunately, when you buy or register a domain from us, we are obliged to add the registrant (or your) details to the WHOIS database. This is a requirement from ICANN, the organisation who manages all Generic Top-level domains (gTLDs).
