Thread: WhoIS protection..

I've presuming most people here have used whois protection at one point or the other, so thought I'd pose a question about it to you all.
Is there any way of changing WhoIS protection so it shows an email where you can be contacted, but hides your address and such like. This would means buyers could contact you via email but you could be secure with your address and name etc.

Why not have a contact page on your site with a forwarding address(alias) that forwards every inquiry to your primary email? This way you can still be anonymous but people can contact you whenever they wanna ask you something..

If someone really wanted to contact me, they could do so through the site. A lot of contact comes directly through WhoIs searches though, so that was why I asked if it could be done :)

Why not, you can do it by using domain control panel

All you have to do is register your domain privately (free at 1and1 and free with GoDaddy when you register 5 or more domains).

I always thought most hosts offer a service where you pay for the whois protection , then you can set a forwarding email address of which when some one emails the "protection" email address in the who is , its automatically forwarded to your email address.
WhoIS protection really annoys me , around 10 domains in the past two months ive tried to make an offer for have had WHOis protection and they have never responded .
