    Website Help

    Does anyone know a good domain provider that provides the service that hides your personal info for free? For most websites, it's ridiculous how much personal info you can get about the owner, by using who.is. And also how "safe" will the personal info be? Only govt subpoenas can get around it, or is there other ways?


    Also, what are the legal implications of registering a website under a false name? Or maybe a made up temporary corporate name?

    you can pay when you register the website to have your personal details hidden.. probably the easiest way to go about it.

    Hi,

    I'm not 100% sure if you're still looking for an answer here, but I think I may be able to shed some light on this issue for you.

    ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) requires you to register using valid contact information. If you check out their rules you'll see under the 14th point, under 'Default' (which means if they cannot contact you), they have the right to proceed with a judgement and could take the domain off you and give it to someone else.

    As Kato said, there is a paid option after you purchase a domain that the provider will usually offer which ensures that your private information will not be shared with third parties. Honestly, it's worth that extra few dollars/year if you don't wish to have your private information shared, rather than run the risk of losing your website and losing out on a lot of money by going down the false-information route.

    Hope this helps!

    A lot thanks. Is ICANN solely responsible for activities in the U.S., or does this apply to all users worldwide?

    Based in L.A., but they operate the global network that is, the internet.

    I really feel your pain, though. Having to pay to keep your personal information from getting into the hands of whoever wants it is fucking idiotic and a scam. I really think it should be kept private until a company or organization who pays ICANN a yearly fee has requested for this information, and then you can choose to allow them to see your information, and if you refuse, then you'd have to pay the company or organization like 1% of the annual fee they originally pay to ICANN. This way, shit sniffers wouldn't be able to just google your site and find out your address, and only reputable companies you are comfortable with would know your details.
