    ** to mods, if i put it in the wrong section please move it. sorry

    hello all, first off, just want to say i'm taking action. I want to try out cpa and this require domain and hosting.
    My questions are as follows,

    1. do you provided your real info to domain and hosting?
    2. also, i tried doing domain lookup on my site , and i saw my info there. Is what i'm seeing on the domain lookup results on DOMAIN? or hosting info as well? I'm not really sure cause my hosting comes along with a free domain (saw this promo here).

    I dont plan on doing illegal stuff, it's just that i'm being careful with everything. this also serves as learning process to me. hope someone could give advices in layman's term. thanks all.

    Yeah like the above post says all your doing is CPA so I do not see any reason why you
    would not use your real information. Also, Take into account that whois ect can be false
    because when you apply for a domain you can pay extra money for privacy protection.
