I don't understand.

If you come across a free webhosting and domain provider, why would they really want your full in-depth information about real address, real home phone number, etc.

WTF?

For example, this one - www.freehostia.com.... You'll see the fill out forms containing of address, home phone number, etc. Why would they need that information, especially when you've given the full information to your ISP, right?

And this one, www.freedomain.co.nr.... It's really funny that they keep saying "please", "please", "please" for your information on this one.


Why would they need your information? Especially when if they're not scams?

Cause it's a lot easier to give them your address and stuff instead of them having to make a few clicks to find it so they can SPAM YOOZ!

they make money and pay for that free hosting by selling your information to advertising agencies. Check the terms, I would be that it doesn't make any privacy guarantees.

Do this..... Get a dedicated server for $400 on up a month or virtual server space for $150 and advertise free web hosting. Don't ask for any personal information from clients. Than let em rip. When your server provider shuts down your network for violations perpetrated by your client base on your providers TOS and you want to know who is doing mp3 uploads for others to download, hackerz running illegal software downloads, kids with malicious websites running scripts, bandwidth gobblers and hate spewers to just name some of the things you have to protect yourself from when getting sued. You will want to know who the legal system should be after and not you when hauled into court.

You have to give your info for a domain name. Whats the problem doing the same for free hosting.
