Same Whois on All Domains - Is this bad?

    I currently have a small network of ccTLD PBNs running. It's not possible to register WhoIs protection for these domains (or possible but very hard), so I added random info on the WhoIs.

    However If I check the WhoIs for any of my domains I get the same exact info. The name and address of the person who owns the registrar. They probably did this to protect the info of the owner.

    Is this bad? Even though it says that they are associated with more than 300k domains.

    Imo it is a small footprint if many of your links come from domains with similar whois info. No big deal unless it starts to be noticeable, in other words do not get too many of them linking to the same site.

    I don’t think it’s an issue. It’s not a footprint specific to you is it.

    Maybe it’s not great having a big network with all the same tlds though?

    Diversify your link profile so these pbns dont emerge as your only or main link sources.

    300k associations means it is a footprint you don't have to worry about it.

    Also, ccTLDs take quite some time to refresh especially if you use ccTLD specific registrar. Check it in a week or two.

    If you want to stay 100% safe, point every PBN to a different money site (or create small sets). Not all to a single one.
