    Okay, if I have already registered my websites, can I still make them private, where no one can view any of my information? I need to do this asap, since I'm spamming my website and these people are looking up my info and calling me. You can do this with an existing domain, right? I registered them with Godaddy, does anyone know how much it is?

    yes, you can protect an exisintg domain and no, I don't know how much is this at godaddy; I believe it was a few bucks at namecheap, like $3 or so if you buy more than 10 whoisprotections

    Normally its 9.99USD per domain @ GD, and yes you can add it at any time. Expensive, yes, but if you call in rather than adding it online, you can usually get a discount or promo code. And most of the time if you register or transfer to them 5 or more names @ once, you can get a free year of privacy on those - not sure if they'd bundle privacy onto existing ones for free, you could ask.

    Or just transfer the names real quick to a registrar that offers cheaper privacy - namecheap gives the first year for free still I think, so do some others, or internet.bs where I believe its free for the lifespan of the name. That assumes that you're comfortable with transferring names between registrars (it's not that hard, but it's not exactly easy either).

    And after the first free year, you can get it for like $1/year.

    If possible, avoid GoDaddy and go for Namecheap. It's cheap and fair.

    agreed, tell him to suck CountStacula's dick next time.

    but should you really be spamming using your own real info (even if set private) if it's that bad where you get calls?

    wasnt there a thread on here a week or two ago about even adding privacy on a domain means someone can still see it if someone has already done a whois look-up when privacy was not initially put on from the start?

    Not wishing to scare op, but this is something I wanted to know as I have a domain ex-privacy (aged domain) that I would like to use for BH but that post I read made me think whether I would still get 100% privacy if I added it at this stage..

    Anyone confirm or otherwise?

    Why don't more people register with fake info? This I never understood. If you are doing big money business, buy a prepaid cell phone for $10.00 or something to use for confirming with the registrar.

    I don't get why EVERYONE talks about godaddy and namecheap. GD is shitty and i always read shady stuff about it. good for cheap $1 .info when they have it. Namecheap? Is not even cheap.

    internetbs.net is the cheapest registar that i've seen. AND they offer FREE private whois at least for the first year not 100% sure about after but renewal prices are the same

    You do not need to change your registars to private, just login into your domain manager and change your information to something fake. People really need to think this spamming shit through a little bit. If you plan on spamming other people's sites then maybe it would be a good idea to remain hidden and not give people your home phone number?

    Just change up your information. I have one godaddy account that all of the domains are registered to the name - Bob Bob or something like that. You can change them to whatever you want. And never ever use your real phone number or address??? Spamming is Black hat, pretty much anyway you look at it. Though BH tactics are not considered illegal it is still a very good idea to remain hidden and not give people your identity.

    Change information = $0.00

    Good luck and think your stuff through a little better next time.

    When you rehash stuff all day long you start rehashing your private communications too. Namecheap is expensive and GoDaddy sucks, the latter is famous for domain snatching and spilling private info to just anyone that asks them, right before they take away your domain. But the same advice keeps popping up every week or so. Another gem is 'move to offshore and throw away the C&D you already got in the mail'.

    BTW if you change the owner's info GoDaddy may ask for an ID of the 'new owner'. A phone number won't be enough. Not sure what triggers that flag but happens to clients all the time.

    A better pro tip is to pay the freakin 9 or 10 dollars to begin with. Who the hell puts their name, address, phone number etc anywhere on the internet?

    If you are dedicating to BH things you never should buy a domain with godaddy, Just google "godaddy stole my domain" and you will se why ;) any complint and godaddy ban you so go with namecheap they never ban you and they are cheaper =D

    I don't understand. You are suggest paying 9 or 10 dollars to buy private whois, but you are also suggesting people don't put their real information anywhere on the internet. If you aren't using your real information, why would you need private whois?
