Might be of use if you want a private email box completely seperate from the one provided by your ISP. Or you could set up your own website I suppose lol ;-)

Note: It costs extra to make you details private but theres nothing stopping you from changing the details after signing up for a bit of anonimity ;-)

Forgot to mention...

Type the name you want into the search box and change the dropdown to .info before hitting go. When signing up make sure its set to 1 year and untick any special offers.

But if you do 2 year+ they normally give discounts after your first year. The way things are $9.99 will be worth about £3 by then:lol:

For some reason i cant get to the payment page with firefox it just comes up blank, it lets me choose my domain names and no more! Managed to sort it out using IE7. not bad though i bought 7 domain names grand total of £4.38. Plus they are the first ive come across that take paypal!

Nobody can ever 'own' a domain name, they're all technically on lease, yep even Ebay.com:lol:

They manage the registration/lease of the name.

Sort of like car license plates or mobile phone numbers. You can keep and transfer the numbers as long as you maintain their registration. Let it lapse and someone else can use them after you have.

Rep added, we think alike:w00t::thumbsup:

Thanks Shengis, voted hot!

One thing though - is the hosting in the US? As it does mean slighly longer ping rates if most of your users are in the UK (110ms vs 10ms).

Russ, I would assume so. I just redirect my 'extra' throwaway domains to my .net hosting so don't know.

I'd strongly recommend AGAINST that approach, as you can have your domain terminated if the details are found to be fake.

I've voted it warm.

I haven't heard good things about their hosting personally, but I guess there are many people perfectly happy with it. However I'm not a fan of .info's either to be honest - I'd recommend against a .info if you want it for a business site or something though (if it is for a business site etc., you probably want a .COM or .NET or possibly .ORG) as the general consensus is that .INFO makes it look less professional.

Personally I prefer to use NameCheap for domain registration anyway though (plus every so often they do offers where you get free whois privacy).

While its true you can get a domain cancelled for fake info, that wasn't actually what I was suggesting. As a private registrant I have no problem putting my name and mobile details for all to see (nobody can force me to answer a number withheld call), my address on the other hand... No thanks, I upset WAY too many trolls to risk that one:whistling: To get round this easily I use a PO Box address that redirects to my workplace. Completely within ICANN rules as the contact info is up to date and valid.

I agree on your .INFO comments, not a particularly good idea for a business, more suited to clubs/enthusiast sites or maybe even sites offering links to cheap stuff;-) But then I feel the same way about .WS .TV etc. Prefer .NET's myself as they're more general purpose.

thanks mate!!
