    Hey Guys,

    first of all thank you guys so much! This forum is the best ever! I am 21 and I do affiliate marketing. So I have some websites.

    Something weird happened to me yesterday. I got a text from a guy that he found out about my websites. I didn't believe him so I told him that he should send me my domains. And he did but only 3 and I have 4 websites. He even figured out what my email is. I recently just bought 3 new domains like 2 weeks ago and he knew them even that one of them has no content. He said he used "rapidgator" the website. 2 days before that I told him that I have a website about hemorrhoids. I guess that was a mistake.

    But how the F*** did he found out what are my websites? Was he looking for my IP address or I have no idea. I am angry but I somehow can't do anything.

    I use Hostgator and he knew the email I use there. (my login email). I also have included my first given name in my email (which I guess wasn't that smart).

    Here is my question. How can I be safe/invisible on the web? I mean is there any IP address hider or changer. Is there anything where something like that can't happen again? I hope some of you guys know some software or programs or whatever or even some tips. I appreciate everything.

    Thank you so many guys and keep up this awesome forum

    Ps.: By the way, this dude is a hater and has no life if he has time to look for my website

    I think that when one registers a .com (and maybe other) domain it's possible to see your contact details. I got quite a lot of spam after registering a .com domain and accused my domain provider of leaking my contacts. It was actually not their fault and I could pay extra money to make them hide my contact details and use their own e-mail or something publicly. That may be what happened to you?

    I think for the basic stuff one can be safe/invisible on the web with proper setup, caution and tools like Tor and Tails. But it's not trivial..
