    I'm new at this business and I'm trying to build my first PBN. I am reading a lot about it last weeks to not make any stupid mistake. Yesterday I was reading some text about correct ways to not leave footprints, when I saw this:

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Fake Hosting Information

    This one is a little trickier because it will set off spam filters when trying to register a domain
    for hosting. The easiest way around it is to use your real information that aligns with your
    billing information. As soon as your site becomes ?Active? in your account, change the
    information to something fake.

    Many people skip out on this and it?s a huge mistake because the scraper websites will collect
    not only your domain registrar information, but also your updated hosting information on the
    site. Once it does, it?s on display for the world to see. Some scraper sites will literally show the
    email you used to register your hosting account.

    That?s why it?s critical to change your account information BEFORE changing your
    nameservers.


    -----------------------------------------------------------

    It scared me! I never heard that the hosting account data was public! Is this real?
    I was using the same e-mail address for all the hosting accounts I created; should I have one for every hosting account?

    I'll answer on the presumption that you're not trolling.

    Hosting account data is not publicly available... it's visible to the host only. WHOIS data, however, is public - and using fake whois data can screw you if someone reports you to ICANN.

    For hosting you can use different names to be in safe side.. Though that information is not visible

    For domains... Use some as private whois and remaining as different names but not private...

    I didn't know that we could be reported to Icann :/
    But I think, the risk is worth the money if you use it for a PBN

    I'm not trolling. As I said, this information surprised me too. I'm new at SEO and IM, but I'm experienced at hosting and I'm pretty sure this can't be true.

    I usually would not even believe in something like this, but this piece of text came from a source I trust in, and this is why I'm confused.

    Domain whois data is not a problem since you can (and must) use data protection services.

    We're registering domains for clients - each domain has it's own whois data. This is the data that is public. As we're registering on behalf of a 3rd party, it is possible to put whatever contact info in there. The registrar will not ask to verify that data in most cases.

    It's the domain registration data that is public (also known as WHOIS) not the hosting account data. Registrant contact, technical contact and the rest are all that is publicly visible.

    If you get reported then you're either a blabber mouth or building stuff sloppy.

    You just need a new email for every domain and just supply false whois. Thats it. Hosting Data is not public.
