I have a very common and general doubt on domain registration. During registration process, we have been asked to enter our name & address info.

Is it safe to enter the original info?
Is it possible to occur any kind of problems because of this?
Can't we just use some false info there? (name & address)

You might encounter problems if you don't use accurate information.
See http://answers.google.com/answers/th...id/268464.html and http://wdprs.internic.net/

Hey,

Yes you should use the correct information. But you can easily get a private whois for your domian name which will increase the safety for you.

You need to use the correct info. One of my registered domains was almost blacklisted because I didn't enter the correct whois info.

You absolutely need to enter the correct information, or select to use private whois services. What is your concern with entering your contact information?

It's a common concern, but with any decent spam filter, most of that is weeded out.

Of course! But, you can always block any of them that get through the spam filters.

If you're buying from a reliable & reputed registrar I don't think you'll have any problem.

You should use the correct info and if you are worried about spam opt for a private listing.

You should use your real info, if you are worried about it then you can get private whois which will hide your info. Some registrars give it for free others charge for it.
