Buying domains for PBN under one godaddy account

Am I being too paranoid?

I have bought a few domains from godaddy auctions under my account (but host them under fake names)

Having a godaddy auction account means an annual cost. Not that the cost is prohibitive but just wondering what others are doing?

Creating a new account for each domain they wish to buy (which can also take some time and 9/10 are too late to get that domain) or use one account?

Thanks

    I don't know how many accounts you need to have for a PBN, just one is okay it's where it's hosted and how it's setup that matters.

    If you are going to be that paranoid, let's go all the way with it.

    Never login to a Google account while accessing GoDaddy.
    Do not use Chrome. In fact, uninstall it now.
    Most Facebook feeds have at least one YouTube video showing. Never login there either.
    Do not use Gmail for anything.
    Do not talk about building your PBN while your Android phone is in the same room. Google is listening.

      Really ? Is this necessary - I asked a simple question, a simple answer would have sufficed.

        It's my understanding that when it comes to PBN's, you need to use different registrars not just GoDaddy.

        By mixing up the registrars you significantly reduce any footprint your site may have and you make it harder for the powers that be to find your network and de-index it.


        Also as an optional layer of protection, you may want to use a combination of both Fake registrant details and privacy protection. This way not all of your domains have private whois, some of them have real looking people and addresses...even if they are made up!


        So mix it up and be different, don't take the easy road and have all you domains in one account, all using privacy protection.


        When it comes to hosting, many people suggest SEO Hosting as a solution to managing many domains. While it does make it easier to manage, SEO Hosting is NOT GOOD for a Private Blog Network.


        You want to avoid attention and footprints at all costs. Google can easily identify these SEO hosting accounts.


        The trick is to use reseller hosting, which will allow you to mange your PBN sites from a single account, while providing the unique IP ranges you need.



        ...or you can setup multiple hosting accounts, from many different sources. However this is much more difficult to track, manage, and set-up.


        Hope this helps.

          Just remember if you are going to do this, it is against ICANN regulations. If you ever have to confirm your details for any reason, you do risk losing the domain with no compensation.

            True, but setting up a PBN is risky as well. A person has to decide if the reward is worth all the time and energy required to set a PBN up.

            However, I've owned multiple domains for the past 10 years and never had to verify my information...but that doesn't mean that things won't change in the future as people get into doing these PBN's more and more.

              Has nothing to do with PBNs and everything to do with ICANN. They have been getting stricter and stricter with their regulations.

              I'm sure others have gotten those emails to confirm the information on their domain in order to comply with ICANN. For now it is a simple click to confirm. It could be more involved in the future. And yes, domains do get suspended for the owners not complying. I have stumbled on them.

              If you are spending thousands of dollars on domains, it is a risk not worth taking, in my opinion. WHOIS privacy is enough.

              If you are really paranoid about it though, setup several LLC's and register domains in their names. It's only a few hundred dollars to setup an LLC.

        Those things I listed are a greater risk than a single GoDaddy account.

    I think it may matter about the godaddy account as it sets the registrar and if Google wanted to lock down, thats where they would start first!

    GoDaddy register around 1/3 of all domains registered anyway. I wouldn't use strictly GoDaddy for a network though.

    If you can wait a while you can get the domain at GD aution and transfer it to another registrar before you build it out

    I bet if you just get privacy WHOIS for all your domains from Go daddy, it should be good.

    You need a big budget to create what you need. And one account it's not enough!
