    I received 2 DMCA complaints sent to my hosting provider and to domains by proxy (private whois service). I plan to remove the entire post from my website and tell both the host and the DMCA sender that i removed my post. My question: Will that be enough, do i still need to send my contact information to domains by proxy? What's my move here?

    The first thing is that if you're doing some blackhat stuff, why not use offshore hosting? Second thing, I do receive DMCA link removals from Google a lot of times, but namecheap never seized my domain. Earlier, when I was using godaddy, one of my domain got seized coz of promoting some blackhat niche. So, I'd suggest you to move to an offshore hosting and a domain registrar that is more liberal. All the domain registrars will crack up on you in the end, but namecheap protects you for the longest possible time.

    About providing contact info to DBP, all the domain registrars need you to have updated contact info for every domain registered. It is ICANN's policy. So, if you already have updated contact info then you don't have to send it again. Removing the post would do the job. :)

    Yea i plan to transfer my domain to namecheap. Godaddy is BS, they even charged me 62$ for this complaint "for our processing of this inquiry". Will i get the money back even if i solve the complaint or not?

    I don't know for sure, but I think it's very unlikely that they'll refund the amount.
