    Private registration @ GoDaddy

    Some of you might have know this but those who dont this is actually really neat.

    If you have a large profile of domains at godaddy that have public registration and you order a bulk registration of domains you get an option to add private registration to all of the domains you already own for free.

    Found out since I just registered 26 domains and saw the option

    Yeah Charles told me when he had to register another 50 domains for me
    But I didn't do it, I mostly make better deals with my real WHOIS... (Still it's fake, my adress isn't alright, my number isn't alright, and Nico Lawsons is a 'fake' real-internet-name)
    People just think a site is cool, wanna buy it, check whois, mail the person and give a huge bid at it

    The freebie private registration is only good for a transfer or new registration. I also think the minimum is 5. It used to be 3.

    Make sure that you register the domains for a reasonable amount of time, because the free privacy registration does not apply to renewals and most of GoDaddy's discount codes do not apply to private registration fees.

    GoDaddy makes their money on the renewals. If you do not want to pay for the private registration upon renewal, you have to cancel the private registration prior to renewing. When you renew a domain, they do not appear give you the option to renew without paying for the private registration.

    There was a recent thread on DP that listed all of the GoDaddy discount codes, but most of them do not appear to work. Here is one that does work:

    HASH3 - gives you a $6.95 registration or renewal.

    If you buy 5 new domains on g.d. you can apply private registration to your previous domains during the checkout process. Its a 'hidden' feature. I haven't done this myself but will see if I can find the 'how to' link somewhere.

    Add 5 new domains to your cart and you will see a big button asking if you want add the private registration to your other domains.

    Why privacy protect?????

    I never add privacy protection to domains. Even if it is free. I want potential buyers to contact me if they are interested in the name. I often search whois records to find domain owners myself. If it has privacy protect I can't contact the owner directly. The whois records are like the county cleck's office for domains. Except this county is the world. Think about it, why wouldn't you want everyone to know "this is my domain". Would you buy a piece of Real Estate and file the deed with "privacy protect".
