Private Registration

The advantages of private registration is that your private email, phone, name and address are not included in the domain name "whois" database that any scammer or criminal can look up online for free. Anyone can see who owns a domain name. A private registration keeps your info private.

1. Your private info is kept private
2. You remain the owner of your domain
3. You retain all the rights and benefits of domain ownership

At $16.99 a year, including private registration, the GoDaddy price seems very attractive. It is all very simple and very convenient until you try to leave.

THAT is what GoDaddy is counting on. Like I said, customer retention.
