    Default Can you recommend good and inexpensive whois guard?

    I registered my domains through Namecheap, and I got it for free, and now I need to extend it for another year (probably not with them, but I am not sure). I've seen some places from Ukraine, but I am not sure what it was. Looking for something that works, and is cheap.

    Thank you.

    I had a bunch of domains on GoDaddy. Second year they wanted to charge me for WhoIS, so I moved them all to NameCheap, who offer free WhoIs if you transfer.

    Next year I'll probably transfer them all somewhere else, and get another year of free whois.

    Charging for WhoIS protection is the biggest scam in the world, it costs them absolutely nothing.

    Why don't you just use www.fakenamegenerator.com to come up with your whois information and for the email use a gmail with a forwarder (or even mailinator)?

    Sure, ICANN require that all whois details have to be correct and say that you may lose your ownership of the domain should you provide false information but in reality this is never checked, and considering the number of registered domains it can't ever be checked.

    I don't think I am gonna be doing something like that, but one way or another I have to pay with my credit card, which has all the information. How would I get around that?

    I paid 6.42 bucks on godaddy for a 1.6k+ years of private whois, and I found it pretty cheap, I used a promo code for some topic around here don't recall which.



    Perhaps it was a bug if not im pretty happy with the amount of time

    I've been using NameCheap for ages, as far as I am aware it is $2.8 per year per domain WhoIs Guard. I haven't used them but I know NameSilo offers free WhoIS Guard every year if you register through them. Maybe try that?
