    Anyone ever get trouble or anything by having fake whois info? I use Domains By Proxy for 90% of my domains, but now its time to renew 20 of them and I'm not sure if I want to pay the extra cash.

    Pros?
    Cons?

    I have my real info for one of the domains (i didnt know) and get sent shit in the mail every so often, so :sad2: on that.

    It's probably cheaper if you just rent a PO Box and use that info.

    Always use your real information for domain registration. Any good registrar can add some sort of privacy protection, where the public whois will show their information for the contact, but they will forward legitimate communications to you. Using fake information with your registrar can result in loosing the domain.
