I have several domains coming up for renewal, and GoDaddy is giving me the big rush to include Domain Privacy.
To protect me from piracy, slamming, Phishing attempts.
Dang, but that runs the bill up...

Domain privacy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Is the issue oversold by GoDaddy, or a necessary expense?

How much extra is it?

Personally, I think it is a bit oversold. You certinaly shouldnt pay a lot for it.

I'm leaving GoDaddy because they are so pushy, and constantly coming up with new charges for us to pay. As for Domain Privacy, I didn't pay for that. I didn't see the need. YMMV.

I've used godaddy for years and they've never pushed anything onto me. I pay $40/year for hosting and domain.

I'd get the domain privacy thing, its only 9 bucks a year so even if it is snake oil, it didn't cost you very much.

FYI, if your domain is a .us, you won't be allowed to use GoDaddy's privacy. The rules for that TLD require a publicly-viewable contact.
