Is domain privacy worth it? So some phyco doesn't look up your domain and find where you live.
What's the cost these days . . $9/$10 per year? Seems a minor expense for not having your name and mailing address visible for the entire planet to see.
Amazinly enough free.
Then why even ask? If it's free, take it.
NameCheap charges $3/yr for it and I pay it for all my domains, it's worth it IMO.
Yes it is
at one time a couple years ago I had over 1000 domain names and paid over $900/per year just for privacy. So Yes I think its important. It only takes one loser to ruin your day or worse.
Wait, so I can't do a whois command and find out where you live? Nuts!
I've gone back and forth on this for myself and while I will not attempt to refute the people saying for a few bucks its worth it. I opted not to sign up for it for a couple of my domains. I've not seen any problems yet.
Also some TLDs you cannot even get that, such as .us. FWIW, I don't use my actual email address that I use but rather one that I can easily filter, or ignore if need be. I don't put my phone number down on the registration either.
