    fasthosts offer free privacy on .coms + .nets I believe.

    I dont think many registrar's offer .co.uk privacy however you can omit your data from the whois if your a non-trading individual.

    If you have a large number of names, it's cheaper to get a mailbox address somewhere and use that on your domains. Of course, your name will still be on there, but if it's fairly common people won't necessarily be able to find out which "John Smith" (or whatever) you are if there's no address to go with it.

    Thank you for your replys , based on Edwins sugguestion , i found this service :-

    http://www.scanmypost.co.uk/benefits/very-light-user.htm

    "Website owners who purchase .co.uk domains may have similar needs. Rather than paying the expensive proxy services offered by some hosting companies, our Very Light User package enables you to use your ScanMyPost address for an unlimited number of domains, keeping your personal details protected and away from spammers and rogue domain renewal companies – we identify these as junk mail and shred them automatically."

    I imagine , this can be used for .coms also ? i cant see that making any difference...although i am going to contact them and ask that question :)

    which maybe of use to other users also :)
