    Yes of course or you can register at namesilo.com who offers .com registration for just $8.99 including free privacy.

    You can get your brand new fake address from this website.

    Don't do that, according to ICANN rules, using fake details can lead to suspension of your registered domain. You can buy a domain from namecheap, they provide you with free WHOIS protection for the first year.

    But then can you transfer it over to your hosting without having to wait 60 days?

    Why would you want to transfer it anywhere from Namecheap?

    Usually hosting providers have nice surprises like my beloved InMotion, who charges 15$ per year for a .com plus 10$ for domain privacy. That's why I use Namecheap, Namesilo and 123-reg (for my uk domains).

    Actually now that I look at it, their hosting is real cheap. Is it fast though, with good uptime?

    Don't do this on Godaddy. They will close your account.

    Or you could host elsewhere, but just point the domain nameservers from the domain DNS settings at the hosting providers nameservers.

    Don't know too much about Namecheap's hosting, I've only got the very basic of shared hosting that was on sale for 7$ for a year on their birthday. Seems to working well enough, though it doesn't host any of my main/bigger sites.

    You are doing it wrong.

    You DO NOT have to host your domain where you buy it. You just change the "nameservers" to wherever you want to host it. EVERY registrar allows you to set the nameservers. Buying domain names and hosting are two SEPARATE things. Of course many hosting companies try to get you to register domains through them as well.

    And BTW...Another great registrar that offers FREE privacy is internetbs.net
    I use them for almost all my domains. Never once had a problem.

    It is actually against federal law in the US to use false reg info on a domain name.

    Other than super serious stuff, I haven't put my real address to sign ups for years now. Like why the phuck would a proxy service need to know my home address. Fuckville 23 - 9 is close enough.

    Do not do it, not because of this other stuff but because when you need improtant informaton and they can't reah you then you miss out. Allow me to explain. "this guy I know" a few years ago had the wrong info on his domains and a large company wanted to buy this persons domains. Well they sent paper work out 3 or 4 times and this guy missed out BIG on a some cheesy domains. 6 figures down the drain :-/ by the time "this guy" got the info it was too late and offer was retracted.

    Same as Invoker, I haven't used my real address in many years but I do have a good email address where I can be contacted. I don't use my real telephone number either.
