Why is it that whenever I register a name on Dynadot (this never happens on GoDaddy) I get swarmed with calls, mail from India, Pakistan, the U.S. I literally got 6 calls today. Is my info sold when I buy a name? Becuase it certainly seems that way.

I'm sorry to hear of your troubles with the spam calls and emails, we never share or sell any of our customer's information, but your WhoIs contact records are publicly available on any domains registered without a privacy service. Our service is free, you would just need to add it to the domains in your account. This would cover your contact information with ours, and we would forward any non-spam emails to you. You can add privacy to all of your domains by following the steps in this guide:

I shall do this. Good to know it's an option, and it's free. May I revert back on a specific name(s), turning off privacy mode as well?

This is what I was trying to avoid but Dynadot forced me to disable the privacy in order to try to verify my contact details which were then published on WHOIS for anyone to see. I'm hoping not to get SPAM emails.

Looks like our account management team has been contacting you regarding the fake whois complaint. Please feel free to let them know if you have any other questions or concerns.

I was contacted about verifying my details with Nominet, but first I had to disable the domain privacy, rendering it useless.

Sorry for the inconvenience. The verification is required by Nominet which we have to comply with. I will forward the feedback to our team and see if we could work with the registry to improve it in the future.
