    WHOIS also hides where u host your site?

    I don't need a new domain. I just need to hide all my personal informations and my hosting comp.

    Just free advice, don't host your sites with the same company you have the names registered through. It's putting all your eggs in one basket.

    For domain name privacy, there are a number of registrars who offer privacy/whois guard for "free" (though with many it's only free for the first year).

    Hiding where you're hosting something is trickier than hiding who the registrant of a domain name is...

    No - any company's whois privacy only hides the personal info of who registered the domain name. But where you host doesn't really reveal any personal info about you.

    I dont host my sites on godaddy. I need to hide where I host my sites. Someone contacted my hosting company this morning and requested to suspend my account. How did he get those infos?

    That's why I need to hide those infos.
