I'm trying to create a website and registered a domain with Godaddy and then all of a sudden I get 10 emails from random web design companies!
I asked how they got my info and they told me they used WhoIs.com. So I quickly paid for domain privacy from GoDaddy.
My question is i'm trying to create a website without anyone going to it until it's complete. So I created a directory for the site for testing purposes. I don't want anyone to randomly come across it by doing a search or however people would find a listing of all the sites in the domain.
Test Site: www.CarAuctionXL.com/Test/Test.HTML
(I do not want people to find this site since I'm making all my changes here)
Is this possible? Any other surprises I should be aware of before I realize my info is public and get hounded by all these spammers?
