    Searching for one of my emails I found that a few sites have my entire personal info, number, address, name.
    How can I delete it? The info comes from a domain I created with GoDaddy few months ago.

    The sites are: https://ru.dominder.com and http://wa-com.com/.

    The first doesn't contain anything that can let you delete it, the second one does but it doesn't work.

    I'm not cool with this.. help guys. :(

    You will need: WhoIs Protection i believe :)
    It's called 'Private Registration' on GoDaddy.

    Yes it will; the killer is that Godaddy is expensive for that option though. Namecheap, internetbs, etc are all much less expensive, in fact internetbs is free in that regard.

    I like GoDaddy.. so the only thing I can do is buy it at GoDaddy or I can buy it with a different company that only does Private protection?

    If they don't remove it after a few days of buying the protection, you then have a right to get it removed by their hosting companies. I had this problem a few years back. Contact them or get GoDaddy to help.

    If they still don't remove it after you've done all those steps, then report it to your ISP (it's a law in the UK, not sure if this step still applies outside of it) but they can block the website. :)

    Asked to GoDaddy to give me Private Protection (they call it Private Registration) and they said the domains I have registered within the account do not qualify for private registration per the domain registry, and there is not a way to add private registration to these domain names per their specific domain registry, at this point nothing further can be done with the domain names.

    I have country LTD's and they said most country LTD's do not permit Private Registration.

    WTF? What I can do now?

    Namecheap gives whois protection for free if you buy a domain. Else you can find a discount coupon for it online.

    Those are already registered domains with GoDaddy.

    Then transfer them to namecheap. But ask them will they provide private registration to your domain or not before transfering

    No it won't. Domain privacy works only when you have inexperienced people searching whois (the types who click the first option they find). I have always used InternetBS which has privacy included in the price (as stated already), however to anyone who has a clue, they can still easily find the domain owner and the registered details with free web tools. Your best bet is to create a business ID with details you don't care about or which are fake. This info can still be accessed, but if it is a fake name, address and email (ie. the fictional business) you won't have to worry. Be aware though, there are some slight risks. I've used InternetBS and Namecheap for around 7 years and never experienced any issues with fake business details though.

    For some reason, Namecheap does not offer privacy for all country specific domains though. Perhaps I missed something there when I bought some there but it was not offered and I could not even find a place to buy it.

    Works fine for the .com, .net, .org and such though.

    Thanks.

    If I put my email on Google, then the first thing that shows up is my full info.. at least I want to avoid that.
    But GoDaddy said is possible with .com LTD's but not with the country's ones. Like .us, .uk, .de, etc.

    And my info is still there..

    Hi bud, this isn't Namecheap's policy it was put in place by ICANN. If privacy is unavailable with Namecheap, then it is unavailable with all other domain providers.
    If GoDaddy told you you will be protected, their staff are either uninformed (probable) or straight up lying to boost sales. You can always find the owner of a domain, regardless of whether domain privacy is activated. When you purchase another domain, try InternetBS or Namecheap both are miles better than Godaddy and like I said in the previous comment, you can add business details which don't consist of your own personal details. This also works for the domains which don't allow privacy. In terms of your current situation, you could always try to email the website directly, requesting them to remove your details, providing they aren't a whois tool. Or you could change your domain details and email the website with a request to recrawl your site and update their listing.

    Buy a skype number. Rent a UPS box (or whatever the equivalent is in your country.) Pick a random first and last name. Get a new gmail email address. Use those as your registrant/contact/tech/billing info when you register domains.

    Someone who really wants to get to you will still be able to find you, but those steps will accomplish your stated goal.

    Thanks. So basically I can't have real privacy protection, I will have to use fake infos.

    I know that someone could still find me...just don't want him to find me on the first page of Google in 5 seconds time lol.
    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Basically yes, but I wouldn't use details which are obviously fake as anybody who has a grudge can simply report you to ICANN, who will then request you confirm the information. If you are good with Photoshop then this wouldn't much of a problem either though I suppose. The UPS idea/postal address idea is good, but it costs money.
