    Hi guys,

    So I've decided to go and try to build small PBN network for my affiliate site ranking. I was thinking, okay I will purchase only one domain for a start so I can start slow and avoid leaving footprints since I am just starting out with this.

    My money site is registered with GoDaddy and hosted on Bluehost.

    So I've found a domain for the first PBN site and decided to purchase it on the GoDaddy too and thought that I will change the registrant for the next one. I bought the whois protection too. After the purchase, I've realized that I've received the purchase confirmation email for both domains on the same gmail account so I'm wondering if that could be a footprint? If yes, is there any way to fix it since I really want this domain.

    Yeah, what I'm thinking is that even if that is a footprint, they will do manual review and if the registrant is changed in the meantime it would pass the review anyways.

    I have another question so I will post it here to avoid opening new topic: If the registrant name is different, you don't need whois protection?

    Google is an ISP, they can see right through who is protection and using it actually does nothing.

    You should be using fake personas, not buying who is and hoping this protects you.

    So if I purchased the domain with the same account as my money site, and later on I push it to the new account, would it mean that this will leave footprint through the whois records?

    Well... it's just for two websites so I think it shouldn't be that big a deal if you keep things clean going forward!

    I think you will be fine if you register both of your PBN and money site in same registrar just make sure to get privacy. Avoid using only one registrar and hosting providers if your planning to add more PBN domains.
