    Hi,
    I am just wondering - many people have a lot of experience here on the forums
    If I was to register 20+ domains via 1 register (Say godaddy).
    Then transfer maybe 5 to another godaddy account, and the rest spread out 5 at a time to other registers.
    Will there be any trace of this via a whois record etc.
    Basically what i am asking is if GG can see that they (all 20) came from the one account at the time of registration?
    Many Thanks in advance for any help.

    With services like DomainTools, yes, you can see the whois history of a domain name.

    Keep in mind, that you cannot transfer a domain out of GoDaddy within the first 60 days of registration.

    Yes the 60 day will be an issue, why not just buy from the other account?

    To transfer a domain name, you must remove whois privacy, which means your details will be exposed for 2-3 days, depending on how long it takes for the transfer to be completed.

    Will they still be able to see the original whois if we use whois privacy from the beginning?
