    I've put fake name and address when buying shared hosting before and that was about it. I might be missing a bigger picture here. Maybe someone more experienced would elaborate further.

    Well the payment option here is the problem because they see your real name there if it's cc or paypal so you need a way around that, but when using a vcc they ask for id verification which they normally don't.

    I always write fake name with godaddy, there're several payment options, not everyone needs identification.

    Yeah, they tried that with me, I told them to shove it, they were like 'k,k we don't want it anymore, just pls stay.'

    Anyway, when you are paying with a normal CC online they don't get to see the real name. All they see is whatever you type in the Name field. So just type whatever. Of course law enforcement will always be able to trace the transaction and get to you if necessary but hosts can't get that info.
