Default OT - Domain Name Question



I have a question on domain names. I know how to buy them, I have a
couple and use one for my site. But anybody can
look up my site and find my name. I know when I bought those domain names
Go Daddy offered some special service where they keep my information
private. Is that what I think it is? If I buy a domain is there anyway I
can keep my name private?


Much Thanks!

I guess so. Go Daddy says they can hide my name if I take the service.
I should have checked the Go Daddy site first but I hate the way that site
is designed.

Check your domain out here and see for yourself:

The answer is yes, you are correct ! I speak from experience tho I
used another host to do this.

you can pay your domain name registrar to keep your registration
information confidential and have their name appear in the public
records. or you can simply put alternate information in the domain name
registration record. some of the problems with using alternate
information instead of your actual information are password recovery
(should you ever forget your password), disputes over rights of
ownership, failing to be notified of registration expiration, and so on.
so either pay the additional money for the privacy service or fudge
the information and assume some risks. but if you have already
registered a domain in a public way then making it private after the
fact is a bit like closing the barn door after all the horse has gone...

No, as the domain name is yours, anything that happens concerning your
domain name is your responsibility.
