Things that are important and necessary will never get for free. The privacy protection service is too important as many people nowadays make wrong use of your details listed on whois. Among the privacy protection service providers, I think the Namecheap is a good one. You may opt for that if your client want to hide his details.

Why to hide your identity ? I'll never trust a company having a domain with domain privacy on. But I see the way how most of the big companies are doing is to make a customer to contact them almost impossible, so like this they can be relaxed.How do you check a owner of a domain if there is privacy, you can't, so you are playing "Russian roulette" . Most of domains with domain privacy on are abusers, spam sending etc.

So again, if you are saying all the time the truth you don't need protection.....

I can understand a woman business owner having the privacy on for safety reasons, but she needs to understand that it can also be bad for business. There has to be a productive medium in there somewhere.

I see a lot of counterfeit ecommerce sites using domain privacy like in have a .uk or .com domain, but selling counterfeit goods from China.

So if a domain has domain privacy enabled then how do you know where the domain/site is registered or what they offer is genuine.

why should they give a server for free. when you set up domain privacy, this places the contact details of the privacy service using along with an email address (which with namecheap, then randomly change), someone has to provide these details and managed them. if they get emails to their email address, so will forward these to you.

so you want these for FREE

Well, some of my domain registrars do it for free. And sometimes using it maybe very useful if you want to decrease the quantity of spam emails, for example.

Most registrars now offer domain privacy for free. I think it's becoming the norm. All LB registrars and OpenSRS offer it for free.

Yes WHOIS protection is good for old owners, for domain stealing and updating directory.

Though I do not like the idea of original post. You should understand nature of their business and take decision.

Sometimes its worth giving a client a freeby even if its not free to you. Its a business choice, if you want to keep them.

Yes a business choice that will soon see your business fold. If you give away things that cost you then your business will never last long.

People have asked me for it plenty of times before... It's always nice to make free privacy a temporary promo, but I wouldn't give it to everyone for free.
