Private Domain Registration – Your Questions…

domain name system

Ruth asks…

Private domain registration vs public…Is private registration important?

I’m purchasing a domain name from godaddy and I’m confused as to whether or not paying extra for a private registration is worth it. I understand that if I list under public it will be published in the whois directory but I’m not sure I see the advantage of listing private. Is my business address and name the only thing I’m hiding by going private or is there more to it than that? I would appreciate anyone who could clarify this. Please keep in mind that I’m not the most savy with technology “lingo”. Thanks!

I did this and went PRIVATE. The core of all of that information *could be* your Social Security #. Spend the extra few dollars to be safe. There are some top level hackers in this day and age.
