Buy a Domain without personal Information

One of my friend wants to buy a Domain and publish Virus information’s. So he wants to protect him self that nobody (normal users) can trace his name or address. Where can he get this?

When you register the domain, you can usually subscribe to privacy services which shields the names of the Admin, Technical, and Registrant from the general public.

Privacy is by registering a domain via proxy.  GoDaddy puts this into the ordering process.  The domain registration info is all back to Domain By Proxy (in Arizona, IIRC).  If there is a legal or government reason to disclose private contact information, it can obtained.  If the request has no merit, then your private information stays private.

First key to the privacy is never using the same name elsewhere.  This includes actual names or screen names.

Second, don't cross-post from one forum with a link saying "check out my blog here...".

Next, don't cross post the same graphics or pictures.  A search tool like TinEye will show SiteA and SiteB using the same exact picture.

Any forms or affiliate links you use from a 3rd-party site must be sanitized and used _only_ for that site.  If you use the same affiliate link for your personal blog, Google will be your undoing.  People search code numbers to see if similar sites are running the same scam.

Of course, same goes for email.  Use an email service for _only_ that domain.  Don't add it as another "Send As" address to an existing account.  Some headers may reveal the primary account name, or other information such as IP address.

So that brings up IP address.  Figure out where & when it's used.  If your site tracks IP addresses...it will track yours as well.  If in doubt, no harm in using an anonymizing service to connect to your own site.
