Domain Registration -- Private?


#1

The domain registration companies are pushing an add-on called ‘Private
Registration’
where they keep your email and other personal info secret to prevent
spam. Is this a good
deal? Is it needed? Do you have it? Do you wish you did?

I’ve never bought into it, and haven’t had any problem.

I get on the order of 5-10 messages a day to addresses that exist only
in my DNS record. My spam filtering works pretty well, it’s not worth
the money I’d spend on the ‘private’ domain registration.

Pointless, in my opinion.

We sometimes get mail from “The Domain Registry of America” trying to
get us to renew our domains with them at an outrageous price. Apart
from that we’ve had no bother.
