How To Maintain Anonymity When Buying a Site


Joe Troyer: Ah, let’s see. Derek says, “I’m new at this. If I buy a site, will my name show on the record, and will Google see it? I have use for some sites where I can remain the anonymous owner.” Yeah, so I mean, Derek, at the end of the day, can you do a private Who Is? Yes. Can you put it in your wife’s name? There’s always ways around it. I guess the thing that I would ask you is why? Why are you trying to hide the name on the domain name registrar and the Who Is, why are you trying to hide that from showing up as you? I think at the end of the day you’re probably overthinking it, if I had to guess, but just my personal thought process.

Joe Troyer: Black hat idea. I mean at the end of the day, yeah, I mean you can just do a private Who Is. So if you’re going to do that, Derek, if the domain isn’t currently private, I would suggest making it a term of the sale that the seller includes a private Who Is. And they do that first, then when you transfer, there won’t be a momentary lapse of your name being on the domain name registrar. Hope that helps, man.

Joe Troyer: Scott Lindsey. Hey brother, I know you’ve been going through Josh Nelson’s Seven Figure Agency course, you won that in the podcast giveaway, or one of the podcast giveaways. We’d love to hear some feedback from you, man, on some of your Aha moments or where you’re at, or what you’ve been thinking about the program. Josh gave me access and I thought it was absolutely crazy. Amazing content, great support, but would love to hear your thought process, a little third party feedback would be awesome, man.
