They can out any fake info in whois rt?
For any fake info to be outed as you put it takes a bit of effort but it's just easier to keep your real info hidden rather than create fake info. It's an alternative though of course.
but people put extr money to buy privcy protect
Ah well. Internet BS and Namecheap (and some others) do it for free.
Just to clarify that Namecheap offers only first year free while Internet BS has no limit
Thank you for that. In fact I did not realise that was so. That makes it very useful information. Gracias.
You can go that way too But privacy protection is good.
Namesilo also offer free lifetime WHOIS privacy
most of the domain registrar's are providing this facility for free now
Not with Hostgator unfortunately
It's very important to have real info in your WhoIS. If ICANN wants you to verify the ownership of X domain and you can't provide proof, they can take your domain.
Yes, I've always wondered the same too. I use a unique fake address for each of my domains even if I get privacy protect offered free of cost.
This is why I use my real info and protect. I want to guarantee personal ownership of my domains and not lose an argument about ownership because I lied and used a fake name. After all, there's no harm having the domains associated to you if you can hide your whois from the world.
even if the website contain opyrithed things ? like videohosts embed codes ?
With fake info, you're breaking ICANN rules.
With WHOIS PROTECT, you don't.
People choose a WHOIS guard to hide their information behind the domain so that people cannot steal their information without breaking ICANN rules. Many spammers can get your e-mail address from public listing of your domain names WHOIS information.
Using Fake info and Privact Protection is the best route, you will only have problems if you have the name of a copyrighted or trademark in the domain name,
Separate names with a comma.
