    I noticed that GoDaddy have a sale on for 0.99 cent .com's. Although, no whois privacy is included. This is my first time buying a domain, what things can people see if you don't get a priv whois??

    That said, what websites offer free whois... don't like the fact that im getting a 0.99 cent domain and I have to pay like $30 ontop for whois :rolleyes:

    cheers

    You get a free WHOIS-protection at namecheap.com, if you buy a domain (.com costs about $8-9).

    The godaddy offer for $0,99 is not very usefull if you want WHOIS-protection, because if you wish this service you´ll pay even a lot more than at namecheap.com or name.com.

    i think namecheap only offers free whois privacy for the first year only. and the price for a domain is 9.69 without any codes whild name gives it for 8.99 buy or renew and with coupon code FREEWHOIS you can renew, buy domains with free whois privacy.

    and with name cheap they are having it directed to sedoparking whenever the hosts go down which i totally hate.
