    So, bought a PBN domain, decided not to get WHOIS privacy to avoid "footprint". I remember someone said that having privacy is for someone who wants to hide something (like PBN or some shady business). It's been 2 days and today I got 7 emails regarding my website design. I also got an email with the title: "GoDaddy Design - Heres your logo".

    These 7 emails got to my inbox. Just checked SPAM and saw 5 more with more designs choices and SEO. I do have something to hide, my fucking email address. So hide yo kids, hide yo wifes, beccause they're coming for your email.

    Just got 4 more in my SPAM folder. I love how most of them have "Click here to unsubscribe" when I didn't subscribe in the first place.

    I used namecheap to buy a domain and got like 50 of those spam emails. I used an email I don't really use so it isn't a big deal, still annoying tho.

    how are they getting this emails?
    are GoDaddy and other domain provider sell info?
    or they do web scraping?

    Both, some registrars sell info, some people scrape emails. They can still email you even if you choose privacy protection, the email just gets routed anonymously.

    Plus it does not seem like a lot but if you have 20 domains and each one is charged 12 bucks a year for privacy that is a really great meal in Vegas :)
