    :confused: What has this got to do with cpanel?

    Do you own incredible-sisters.com? If you do, then your information *should* be displayed.
    If you don't own that domain, get intouch with the owner of it and ask them why they are using your information.

    Domain registration info is public. If that's your domain and you don't want the info public, then you need to use a service called private registration which basically means the registrar or registration reseller uses their own info for the registration. Some places charge for this and others don't.

    Can you give some info of the places that don't charge?
    I just this minute (still awaiting the confirmation emails) paid $9.00/year per domain for this service on 5 domains :(

    We don't. As far as I know, most registrars do, but as a registrar reseller, we offer private registration at no additional cost over our registration prices. By selecting our privacy option, we put your name as the registrant with our contact info and give you an email of [username]@privatelyregistered.com which you can have forwarded to your own email account, or just go to us to forward to you if it's legitimate.

    Currently .com, .net, or .org, through us is $16/year, but we are just finishing up some modifications to the site and prices, and by tomorrow our price will be $14/year.

    14? Our charge is only $10 per year. Im glad i protected all my domains as soon as this service went into action. If you want this service you will need to transfer your domain to us then select the option to protect your domain name.

    looks like this has changed to a domain bidding war. Do like I do use www.godaddy.com and put Mickey Mouse on all your domains.

    No bidding war here. It was asked where free privacy is available and I don't know off hand any registrars who offer it so I said some resellers do.

    I don't really care if anyone uses our registration service. There's no profit in that. Most of our registration customers are also using our hosting. Registration alone isn't worth it.

    Now DN-Paul knows of at least 2 options. Probably more to come. ;)

    I use Godaddy for registration also, but if someone registered with Godaddy themselves, and also used their privacy option, it would cost more than if they go through us.

    You said you put Mickey Mouse. What about address and email? Legally it has to be correct and that's what people want private.

    If you use false information in the whois you can lose your domain. This includes having someone else as the owner when they are in fact, not. So called "privacy" feature. This is the rules of ICANN and they are BOSS.

    But yes, I use false information on all my domains and domains I register for clients. My advice is don't pay for so called "privacy" feature, just use a slightly different address and phone number - ("silly me I got it wrooong" can be your excuse if anyone objects). I have been using false details since 1997 and never been pulled up for doing it. My Privacy is important.

    When i register domains for clients, I use whatever info they give me - I don't check if it's right or wrong. Everyone's entitled to privacy.
