Domain Privacy – Do you use it?
I am wanting to know how many domainers use Domain Privacy services offered by their domain registrar in a simple Yes or No poll below.
Some people only associate domain privacy with cybersquatters but this cant be further from the truth, Domain Privacy is a great tool, especially if you are launching a new product or service and don’t want your competitors to know who owns the domain name and is also used to stop SPAM and I have found domains with privacy protection don’t get as many lowball offers too.
NameCheap.com actually offer free domain privacy services and so do many others domain registration companies however where I have the majority of my domain portfolio is GoDaddy.com & Dynadot.com both normally require payment for each domain on their domain privacy platforms, what I could do with my domains there is add my own Domain Privacy using DNPrivacy.net and setup individual email address for each at my hosting provider.
Hostgator.com who I use offers me free unlimited email accounts with the option to auto forward the mail, So I could setup i.e firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com – I can leave my address as my normal registration if I wanted too or I could setup another address where I can access my mail using a mailbox or office I have access to collect mail – I now have my own domain privacy service for one fee annually for all my domains vs paying for domain privacy.
