    Check this out..

    BlueHost will advertise its company instead of putting your information when you register a domain through them

    My thoughts exactly. I for one dont like to have my information accessible on whois.

    I have regged a bunch of domains on namecheap. They have whoisguard. That can be had for free when u reg a domain but i guess afterwards it costs something?
