    I know you need to use your real info when buying a domain, but once it is registered, you can change personal info to some random crap. Is this allowed? I've had about 20 domains for over 2 years doing that.. Just saves money instead of buying WHOIS protection.

    I've also read on some other forum that it is OK, just looking for confirmation :)

    I've used false information for years as well but you can lose your domain if you piss off a competitor and they report you. Your contact information should at least look legitimate and if the domain is important to you make sure your phone and email address are valid.

    Adsense won't approve you with that random crap! This info which u give to them should match to the domain's info

    No, it's not okay. You can lose your domains if they catch you. As a bonus, if you use that domain with false info to commit a felony, you get an automatic doubling or +7 years added on to your sentence.

    Why don't you just use a company like name.com with free whois privacy?

    Name.com offers you free who is privacy... And the domain prices are really competitive.
