    Hey guys,

    Just signed up for a Hostgator account yesterday. I put in fake info for address, etc, so that it wouldn't show up in the WHOIS info. I used a prepaid gift card to purchase it. But now I have to verify the account by either calling or emailing a copy of the card and my photo ID.... any ideas on how to get around that? Thanks!

    True that^^ , also if you want to do that, offshore hosting may be a better bet.

    Who.is doesn't pull records from your hosting account. It searches for domains record... Cancel or forget your hostgator account...
