    .....hide your identity from the person who buys it. As in wipe your name from ever having owned it?

    No. Not if you didn't use private whois at least when you registered it.

    I did. It's been private from day one. But isn't my name still tied to the domain in ICANN?

    Yes but they wouldn't be able to get that information without a court order so its not publicly available I am sure. When do you need to sell the domain name by? You could possibly transfer to another registrar, then sell it after when you are allowed to transfer ownership again. There will always be a paper trail if you dont use fake details to register your paypal or use a VCC with fake information, because the registrar can always give you up too. But you need court orders to get that info.

    If you use a legit paypal account then your payment details are tied to the registrar so if someone needed to go after you, they can just ask godaddy or whoever for your payment information and then they can see your name (if they can trick godaddy or get a court order to get the info). Is it possible to set up a fake paypal account? Yes, just go to paypal, type in fake name when you sign up, you have a fake paypal account.

    Would it be best to sell it via third party such as sedo or name.com?

    Don't believe it will make any difference to be honest they aren't really a third party since they don't hold the domain I believe you still transfer directly to the new owner. If you are afraid of legal action and you broke the law, your only safe way to sell it is if you push the domain to a fake identity, and then sell it from there. If they can't get a court order, I don't think they can get your identity if you had private whois on it.

    There is no way possible unless You were the FIRST owner of the domain and purchased it with privacy,otherwise historcial whois data will always be available

    on namecheap you can select for it to use the users info / address that you are pushing the domain to. probably can do the same thing on other registrars. they wouldn't see your address

    If you used the whois guard at the very first you bought the domain, and use a fake PayPal of course, it'll be really hard for the buyer to find your identity

    It all depends man on how much is the buyer interested in finding your identity :)
