    out of curiosity, do you guys use whoisguard to protect your domain names? I just purchased 2 for 2 of my domains. I feel a little insecure when my private info is exposed, so this adds some security for me.

    Yes, I think it's important to protect your personal privacy like home address. I would not run a domain without it. What if one day you had a big bust up with a forum member, who then decided to go do a WhoIs on your domain to get information on you.

    Not wise to leave yourself wide open!

    Before I came to acquire it, my forum was hacked and the then owner had trouble with the "hacker" calling him at home. Needless to say, I don't put my real contact information or my name on there. The only real thing I put on there is the contact email address, obviously.

    I'm not too fussed about my name, email and address being on show - the only problem is the phone number.

    A free skype redirection service (I forget which specifically) sorted that problem though :)

    I do still use whois protection for some of my domains though, depends on the context of the domain.
