    Hi, my friend has someone trying to screw him around and he wants to know what to do?He has a number of websites hosted at Hostgator and this person that is causing the problem will probably be looking into his websites later and may try to hack them or whatever. The person only knows 1 of his sites and what we are thinking of is that he can buy privacy for the domain at Godaddy and it could hide all the info about the sites on the shared hosting then so he will not know what other sites he has. As it is all he has to do is to look up the domain and he can find the other sites on the shared hosting but if he gets privacy for that domain then would that prevent that?

    Well we got privacy and it does mean no one can see the registrant details but it's easy to do a reverse IP lookup and we can see some of the sites showing up. Is there anyway to avoid his other sites on the shared hosting showing up with reverse IP?

    If you think your friend is in real danger, I'd suggest moving to a new host for the time being and buying privacy protection for your domains.

    Point your websites to sites like cloudflare or incapsula.

    I'm not sure what cloudflare or incapsula are or how it actually works or is it an actual hosting service? As he has a lot of websites then moving them in a hurry to another host is probably not an option but thanks for the suggestion anyway. At least on the shared hosting then other websites and not just his are showing up with a reverse IP lookup so maybe it will be too hard for them to know which sites are his anyway.
