Does it makes a difference where I purchase a domain?

    I wanna make CPA - locked, bogus content, so there is a probability for some complaints.
    Does it makes a difference where I purchase a domain, like this company won't ban your domain address, and this company will?
    Can domain be banned in the first place?

    P.S. I am not talking about hosting and banning a website, only a domain.

    Thanks.

    No. Any company will ban you if they receive major complaints.

    Not sure if a domain can be "banned", I know search engines can de-index or sandbox you, which will remove you from the serps. Besides that I'm not sure, but I'm curious so I'll be looking into it now.

    Pay for private whois listing if you don't have it by default.

    That will protect you from the average Joe. If a big company wants your ass, not even the Pope can protect you :).

    All registrars have contracts with the top dog companies to provide them with your info if infringements occur. It's in every registrar's TOS.

    If a webhosting company, where I bought it, bans my domain... it means I can't use it with some other host?

    LOL at the replies. Look for an offshore registrar. I am not into this kind of stuff, but maybe someone who is can make a recommendation.

    The ISP itself probably wont "ban" you persay, but you will get a huge amount of complaints. Ive never sold fraudulent content, so I wouldnt know off the top of my head what would actually go down, but you probably wont get banned. Something you should do is get Whois protection, because if they know your address, your in deep dudu.
