For the past four years TheComputerBoy.com has been able to provide Privacy Protection for domain name registrations at no cost. Unfortunately, I received notification today that this service will begin costing an annual fee of $3 per domain name. There is nothing I can do to prevent this fee from occurring through the current setup.
Starting April 16, 2014, any new domain registrations will no longer have the built in Privacy Protection added for free. Existing registrations with Privacy Protection already in place will remain unchanged until their next renewal.
I am researching the option to have TheComputerBoy.com become a Proxy type service. This would eliminate the $3 fee but would require some serious organization and tracking on my end. Please check back for updates and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
