Whois Proxy Privacy

How can I keep my whois information private?

I currently own a few domains, and have my information on the whois servers. My domain registrar is now offering a service where I would pay $9 per domain per year for them to put up their address and keep my info private. This, however, would be pretty expensive for the amount of domains I have. If it were $9 a year for all of my domains, I'd probably do it.

So, is there a better way? I'd rather not transfer all of my domains to a new registrar. Are there any companies that offer the same service, but are not associated with a regestrar? I could just put their info in the whois, and they could contact me when necessary?

Is a PO Box the best way to go? I'd prefer not to have to pick up junk mail from it though. Can I let half a year or so of mail pile up in a post office box? Any other ideas that are cheap?

I use Proxy privacy on my domains. I usually register through godaddy and add the option of privacy.

$9.00 is pretty steep! Godaddy charge $1.95 per domain or free for each domain when you register 3 or more at a time.

Consider transfering registars.

(I'm not sure if i'm supposed to mention names here, I'm not a reseller with Godaddy, just a happy customer)

I'd rather not transfer. The registration is $2 or $3 a domain. Tranfering at $7 or $8 a domain and a $2 privacy fee really doesn't provide much benifit.

It would be nice to find a company that will do a whois proxy for all of my domains for less than $10 a year regardless of where I've registered the domain.

Anybody? Maybe I posted to the wrong forum. Which one should I have posted to?

godaddy is the way to go. $9 privacy a year. now, if you have many domains, that's a problem. maybe consider incorporating or getting a P.O. Box?

You still have to put a phone number...
