    Can someone please tell me when tranfering domain name to another person, can the person see my private info (name, address, email address) on the "account information" on the registration login if I registered with "Private Registration" with The reason I ask is this I don't want the person see my private info in anyway what so ever before or after the transfer.

    So please let me know if you know this information! Thanks in advance!

    No, if you have privacy on the name the recipient will not be able to see you private info - just the Domains by Proxy info.

    Has anybody else tried this with GD? I have two methods I use. Let's call them Quasi-Private Whois and Pseudo-Private Whois.

    Quasi-Private Whois

    Just make up a name : Hector Van Smeegil, Make up a mailing adddress, and a phone number. There you go INSTANT 'obfuscated' whois...!

    Pseudo-Private Whois:

    Also, if you have a private whois record from any registrar... just use that address and email address in this GD domain record. Of course, if your private whois record shows as ' c/o address' Change that to ' c/o address'

    I personally have not had any probs with either of these methods. But would like the opinions of the experts on this.
