    Hello all ! I wanted to register a domain name that is a little bit illegal as it includes a brand name. I tried to register it in GoDaddy, NameCheap and even Katz Global but they all rejected my order because of it. Do you know any domain registrant that would allow me to register this without reporting my informations in case this brand would file a complaint ? Thanks !

    Have you tried any Chinese registrars? They might get this done. However it's always risky purchasing brand name domains since you can easily loose them!

    I heard that they easily forward infos but I'll most likely give it a try if I don't find.

    I found some Panama and Seychelles based registrants. Do you think it would do ?

    When does registrars like Goddady ever "reject" people from ordering?!
    Never heard of this. They are not the one that cares.

    Yeah they first automaticly accepted my order but less than 24hrs after they suspended my account and refunded me. But I must admit that it's better this way as they would have reported me if this trademark had filed a complaint.

    I've been able to register a domain with GoDaddy - just two weeks ago - which contains the brand name
    Code:
    walmart.com
    in it . The trick iI used was to include "www-" as a PREFIX to the domain I wanted to register.
    Buy the way: I'm selling it for big bucks now :D

    How do you do the "www" prefix trick? Isn't that a pretty common thing people do anyways?

    You'd be surprised at how many companies don't include both the www. and without that.

    I work for a multibillion dollar corporation that gives you an "server not found" error if you don't include the www. Many gov sites require the www. I'm not sure how the OP got a domain like that different than the brandname company's domain.
