When you register a domain name, you may expose personal information about yourself: your address, phone number email address. Let’s take a look at domain name registration and privacy.
I was a domain name hoarder: uvjobs.com… uvfood.com… uvweather.com… thermonster.com… pdxlead.org… wattsense.com… shouldisellitnow.com… buyr.biz… trackr.biz… recovr.org… wstlk.us… wowstalker.com… 23meals.com… stuffthatshouldnthavesugarinit.com… unwishlist.com… thingsijustlearned.com… These are just a few from the collection.
Whenever I bought domains like this I also picked up all the .org and .net versions. Because while you think that the .org/.net forms of your domain names don’t matter, they do. If, for example, you’re a presidential candidate, it might be embarrassing for someone who’s opposed to your policies to get ahold of them. And it’s definitely embarrassing to let the .com version of your domain slip through your fingers, especially if it ends up in the hands of Donald Trump and he redirects all your traffic to his site.
