    Godaddy is asking for a copy of license ID/passport, should I give it them, even though, the exact info does not match the gift card I purchased with (please see below).

    what happened was I accidently misspelled a domain name, then got a refund after I called them and then they asked me for a copy of Id just because of that. But I didn't give them the first time around since I thought they might forget it but with 2 days they also refunded all my other domain purchase that I purchased with the other domain, so this time I must provide them with the ID copy.

    But THE PROBLEM IS the street address is different then i have on my ID (same zip code, city and state) and I did put the whole correct spelling for my name (just didn't put one alphabet in the middle for first and last name but you can tell easily, without a second, that not putting one alphabet does not matter).

    I registered as personal not business.

    SO should I send them the copy of ID and hope for the best or DOES ANYONE HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE and can tell me what I can do about it: just let it go and registere with another account and another credit card (that will take a month since the domain won't be availabe after a month)?

    So please help me about what I should do!

    That's not a problem. People move all the time without updating their ID. So, it's safe to give them the copy.

    well it happened just 2 days ago and i have more accounts with similar details. So, do you think they can find out my other account and cancel them as well (they were registered within a month) if i send them the copy of ID?

    The address I have listed with them is different than the one I have on my drivers license, so I'm not sure what the problem would be. Just say the one you have listed with them is your temporary residence (ex: rental house) and the one on your card it your permanent mailing address (ex: parent's house).

    This is urgent, since I do not want to lose all my 10 accounts (with 50 domain names) I created with godaddy with all the same info!:

    I am not worry about the address but the incorrect spelling of the first and last name because both are missing one alphabet in each of them! For example, the name Bobby is missing the middle alphabet B, and the last name, rodriguez is missing the alphabet E.

    Therefore, I am worried that because of the incorrect spelling, they won't unblock my account, and cancel everything!!! So, If anyone had an experience like this, please let me know how should I carry this out!

    PLEASE HELP ME OUT!

    [​IMG][​IMG]just send the copies for them and try to explain to them. If you misspelled just one word, i think it'd be fine !!!

    Godaddy will only cancel a domain if there are complaints for it. I have lost domains while keeping the others on my account. I would give them the ID and explain that you had changed the info for privacy. Best thing for next time is buy new domains with a prepaid giftcard that you can register online. One domain per account. This way if you lose it you dont lose them all.

    Never mind! I cancelled the account and will just buy the domain from some where else, since I am not in a rush to keep it and no one else will buy the domain name. Thanks for all your help regarding this situation!
