    When developing an e-biz, how do you set up your domain name so as to NOT have your personal information displayed should someone look up the WHOIS associated with the domain name?

    You have to pay a little extra for this. With Godaddy it's one of the options you can add during checkout. They replace your info with theirs, yet you still own the domain.

    I use Network Solutions as a registrar. They do have "Protect your contact information from spammers and identity thieves with PRIVATE REGISTRATION" options for $9.00, but I use a P. O. box information and 999-999-9999 for the telco information. I will only be able to be contacted via postal mail from anyone looking my domain name up, other than Network solutions having my email account info.

    Hope that helps.

    Great meeting you this weekend "Wild".

    Sorry "Slim", didn't say HI! The trip was GREAT for makin' friends.

    Great idea with Post office box. I 'spose the info should be accurate, just don't want any calls once I'm speeding down the fastlane!

    Yes, you may change registrars. I am not sure about the $9, since I haven't used it.

    Hi to you too.....

    My P.O. Box info is valid, just not the phone number.
