    I have my Biz website hosted with Register.com and they are trying to get me to sign up for an additional $10 per year for 'Private Domain'

    Is this necessary?

    Thanks fellow TC members.

    Only if you don't want someone to be able to "whois" your domain and find out your contact info as the owner. It also may help stave off some spam.

    It's basically like paying your phone company to be "unlisted".

    Personally, I tend to opt for it when I register domain names.

    BTW - you may want to check register.com competitors, like godaddy.com or plenty of others that may not charge as much.

    No... not unless you have something to hide... for business, I'd never have it on my site. I have it on one site that I don't necessarily want anyone to know I own, unless they know what they are doing (even then, it is not that bad).

    There are always arguments for and against making a business domain private... I'm against it, but the other side have a good argument for it.
