I was trying to register a domain name for the first time. And in the process I found an offer for Domain Privacy service for FREE. On calling the webhosting provider, they told me that if someone does a WHOIS on my domain name, they wouldn't find my email, telephone and home/office address but theirs.
I wanted to know if:
1. Is it easy to transfer the domain name to another web host provider once I sign up for this privacy service from the first host?
2. Would it interfere in my ownership of the domain name, as all my personal info would be replaced by the web host (who is also registrar)'s info.
Yes I asked the webhosting provider about the above. They said this service can be disabled anytime from the cPanel.
On googling I found, that this domain registrars enlist themselves as the owner of the domain, to give privacy. This made me worried about the whole thing. How can one change the domain registration entries from cPanel?
You experienced guys who own many domain names, please enlighten me.
