When their website is registered via "Domains By Proxy, LLC" it doesn't give me a really warm feeling about giving these folks money. Or anything else, really...

Seems it's a standard feature of Go Daddy - a US registrar where tons on folks give their money to registrer DNS domains [Smile]

More seriously, seems already known folks: http://www.h-t-solutions.com from http://www.cineactive.me/about/

Not really. I have a half-dozen or so domains registered via Godaddy and they all have my name on them.

http://www.h-t-solutions.com/ is also registered through Domains By Proxy LLC.

hum... Go Daddy and Domains by Proxy share the same founder (Bob Parsons), isn't it?

Ah... and by the way, these domains are registred by Go Daddy. Example:
Domain Name:CINEACTIVE.ME
Domain Create Date:26-Feb-2013 08:18:12 UTC
Domain Last Updated Date:27-Apr-2013 20:50:08 UTC
Domain Expiration Date:26-Feb-2015 08:18:12 UTC
Last Transferred Date:
Sponsoring Registrar:GoDaddy.com, LLC R41-ME
Created by:GoDaddy.com, LLC R41-ME

So that leads me to thing the the "Domain by Proxy" must be an option linked to domain registration within Go Daddy. I cannot confirm anyway as I never had to use this registrar in my life - so far.

I believe that the Domains By Proxy identity masking service is an extra-cost option that you can get when you register a domain via godaddy's domain registration service.

But so what? The point remains that whoever owns those domains is concealing his identity behind Domains By Proxy LLC.

If this Cineactive outfit is indeed a legitimate business (which it may or may not be -- I have no information either way) that simply raises a question in my mind as to why the principals feel it necessary to hide in that way and if I was in the market for that software (which I am not) it would make me think twice before deciding to make a purchase from them.

My domains have my name and contact information in their whois registration records. film-tech.com has Brad and Scott's contact information in their whois registration records. Cineactive conceals their identity behind an anonymizer service.

I find that interesting; if I was a potential customer I would find it even more interesting.

Frank,

Most companies don't post private identifying information in their registrations. There are a many reasons and few are for anything nefarious.

Actually, most corporations use their corporate address in their registrations.

Example: whois microsoft.com
....
Registrant:
Domain Administrator
Microsoft Corporation
One Microsoft Way
Redmond WA 98052
US
domains@microsoft.com +1.4258828080 Fax: +1.4259367329

Most individuals who are conducting business use their personal address since that's the only one that they have.

I find the absence of either to be interesting, as I said before. You are free to find it not interesting and, since I won't be purchasing software from them in any event, your opinion probably matters more to them than mine if you are in fact a prospective customer.

Don't worry about the WHOIS data, it's a legitimate Doremi spinoff. One of my personal contacts in the industry used to work at Doremi and is now employed there, among others.
