  1. This is a great article! The section on not giving out your home phone number is common sense that not enough people follow. I will be forwarding to many of my clients.

    Very good advice, James!

    Another good piece of advice is to allow your host company to remain as the WHO IS on your domain name if possible.

    I recently changed my domain registration to my own name and it wasn’t 2 weeks later that some trolls decided to attack me, my business and my health choice.

    They emailed me death threats and pasted my home address, telephone number and times when I would most likely be home on Reddit.

    And if you are not familiar with Reddit, it is a place where you can sign up totally anonymously, form a loose-knit group of equally ignorant people, like yourself and agree to attack others while supporting each other.

    They support each other by flaming someone then they all vote up their own negative messages and if you reply to try and add a bit of sanity to the fray, your reply is so far down no one ever gets to read it.

    But they will get to read the misinformation concerning you and your business as Reddit usually ranks very high in GOOGLE returns.

    I thought business readers should be aware of this sickness. I wish I had read this post a month ago.
