    Since you have to pay to keep your whois protected i was wondering if anyone of you ever entered some fake name /data while registering the domain and how it turned out for you? :)

    That's what I've done, because my mentor suggested it. It has been no problem for him.

    I don't think that using Fake name is going to create any problem. Just make sure you add a working email ID, in case someone steals your domain, you can prove your ownership using that email ID.

    Like everyone says, you can use fake name with working email ID.

    I have no issues with that

    Not all registrars makes you pay for whois privacy, namesilo and internet.bs to name a few.
    Goduddy wants $7.99 for privacy is reason why I'm transferring all mine over to the two aforementioned.
