    Hi,

    I normally registered my domain name at namecheap and I don't recall ever send them my scanned ID or anything.
    Yesterday I decided to register a domain at 1&1. After they charged me, they asked me for my ID.
    Then I do a search here and realized they had a really bad reputation.
    Should I concerned about privacy leak if I send my ID to them??
    And also can anyone suggest any other good domain registrar other than namecheap?

    Thanks.:)

    They always asked me to send them my ID and finally, I decided not to use them. I would recommend you using namesilo.com

    I don't remember sending an ID to them ~6 months ago. In my case it was a non-refundable £1.19 .com domain.

    So decide whether it's worth it for you with that crap company.

    You can try namesilo for reliable and efficient working ever.
    It'll never hurt you.

    dont give your ID anywhere without crossing it with a pen, I mean draw a diagonal line over a copy and than scan it, or simply do it with the help of ms paint

    Just go to another registrar that doesn't ask for ID-s, unless the domain you currently have with 1&1 is really valuable and you need access to it.
