    Well, I'd say to each his own. If you allow your clients to stay anonymous...

  • Buy a PO box or mailing address. There not (Or they shouldn't) let you bypass the rule.

    Im sure a scam artist wouldn't say can i have my WHOIS private because im going to scam people.

    No offense intended, but i hope you see my point.

    I have my personal phone number and home address on all of my WHOIS, currently ~10-15 domains. Dont really think anyone would bother setting you on fire... However someone might show up at your doorstep and beat the crap out of you ://

    If someone runs away with my money without providing the agreed service, I guess that's quite justified.

    well that wont happen, even IF my business fail, i will make sure i will refund their money

  • nabonabo Member

    Maybe. But that 'insurance' are just pixels on my screen. Not that I say you will try to deceit customers. I'm just drawing the attention to the fact I guess you want your customers to not be anonymous, provide real fund and do a payment in advance. I guess you should give them some security. ;-)

    Good intentions are hard to follow through with a business failure. If you had the money to refund, you would not have failed, you would have paid the bills, now you no longer have the money, see, such a catch-22.

    Anyway, with the home address bit, I've used my home address for the past 6 years, all that has happened because of it is a support phone call now and then and baked goods (cookies!) arriving during the holiday season.

    i do have money i just dont have much customers! i have prepaid service for a year.

  • @miTgiB said: baked goods (cookies!) arriving during the holiday season.

    nom!

    @Randy, I've had my home address listed on most of my domains for over 7 years (since I was 12, at least). Needless to say I lived with my family at that time - dad, sister, and brother. The worst thing I've gotten in all my years of pissing people off? Spam "OMG PAY US $80 TO RENEW YOUR [search engine] DOMAIN REGISTRATION! [*Will not renew your domain.]"

    yes. i will :)

  • If you have the cash to pay upfront for a year on a decent dedicated server then you should have the money for a POBox, problem solved.

  • Depending on your country it might be illegal to just write the address of a PO box in the whois record/legal imprint. Maybe you should consult a lawyer about this before starting a company (which you should do anyway).

    Also when you do an offer, please don't make the title all caps ;)

    Who cares about anonymous whois? Frankly I think it's a silly rule. Whois is not checked to be accurate and unless it's a big company, it's some guy's house or a PO box. So what does that prove? That he has a house or apartment? May not even be his.

    Yes, there are serveral ways to hide (ex: The Constantinos Coudounaris Trick)

    a POBox gives you absolutely 0% Extra protection. All they need to do is a simple search for the real address. aswell as post offices

    Not everybody will know that and it cuts SPAM down :P

  • RandyRandy Member

    some providers just rent space and use it as a address but the fact is no one works at the orddress

    You could just go the route that some respected providers (like ChicagoVPS and BuyVM) have gone, and put down your home address - at least, that seems to be what they have; I could be wrong but that's what it looks like.

    Part of running a responsible, honest business is having an address that you can be traced to. It's not that it's a huge guarantee of anything, but it says "I stand behind my products and am not afraid to put my name out there in conjunction with this business." To my knowledge, nobody has attempted to murder Francisco or Chris in their sleep :P

  • RandyRandy Member

    i will kill fran and chirs today? :) that will make a history? what about unhappy customers? :(

  • nabonabo Member

    @Randy said: what about unhappy customers? :(

    So this thread will go on for pages. People suggest you to put in either a PO-box or your private address. You answer that you don't want but ask for more input. People tell you to use a PO-box or your private address. But you don't want but ask for more input. People tell you to use a PO-box or your private address. But you don't want but ask for more input. People tell you to use a PO-box or your private address. But you don't want but ask for more input. People tell you to use a PO-box or your private address. But you don't want but ask for more input.

    In the end it's up to you. If you want to be anonymous, let your customers be anonymous and everybody will be fine.
