Morning all,
I am about to go live with an affiliate website and was wondering what the requirements are regarding publishing business address on my site. I am reluctant to do this as i operate from home and do not want all and sundry to know these details. Whilst I'm on this subject, what also are the domain registration detail requirements regarding public display of this information?
Many thanks.

    You do not have to put your address on a website. I have had several sites over the years and have never put my home address on it. It is not required when you make a site live.

    Only time you would put your address on a site. Is if you are conducting a business, where you want people to visit your business. Example is a retail store.


    Business name - XYZ Business
    located at - 123 Main Street
    City and State Anywhere City and Any State

    Hope that clarifies it for you.

    Where you do have to put an address is at the bottom of any emails you send out through an autoresponder. You may not be at this stage yet but you'll face the same issue if you're working from home. In these cases, you can always find a free address to use online as a business address. There are several free and paid services that offer this.

    1. No need to add your address on website, unless you are accepting payments from your visitors (eg. online store). People might be interested in your address when you are selling something and they need to buuild trust before making a payment.
    2. Domain names technically require correct details of the owner. If you don't want to share it with public, get domain privacy option from your registrar to hide your info and show the one provided by your domain proxy provider.
