    How are these people finding which domain I registered?

    Everytime I register a domain, I get some 50 emails from various people,
    some selling website design, some hosting, some something else.

    How do these people find out when I registered a new domain?
    Thanks

    You should better use whois privacy service provided by the domain registrar. There are some domain registrar which offer it free of cost. Namecheap.com, Epik.com, Namesilo etc

    One time I registered a domain name and accidentally put my real cell phone # (I should've known better than that). I started getting dozens of spam texts and phone calls every single day. I then changed that phone # to my old phone # in my dashboard. Up until today (3-4 years later) I still get occasional spam texts and phone calls because of that stupid mistake.

    I get that, I should privacy protection etc.
    But my point is, how are these people finding out that a new domain has been registered?
    Is there some kind of service or something?

    Thanks

    Registrar selling contact details ...... According to me its just white hat blackmailing :):mad::cool:

    If you are choosing privacy protection and pay extra money to them then ok otherwise they will sell your data.

    And i notice also that if you book domain like SEO123 dot com then also spammer will try to convenience you that your site ranking is not good or we are offering this package with website designing ...... means they are not checking domain name or anything else they only buy data and sending email in bulk.

    Of course its bulk email. I replied to some, got no response back LOL

    Many years back I read something about this. Someone was providing this service.
    They kept track of new domains registered and sent an email on your behalf to registrants.
    Just wanted to know if someone is still doing this...

    It's only GoDaddy & Name which want extra $$ to protect other like Namecheap, Namesilo and Epik provide Whois privacy service free of cost.

    I see also this option with Bigrock .... About Godaddy i know already because my experience is very bad with godaddy. Did not use other like namecheap etc so can not say about them.

    And i think if you will choose privacy protection then can not see details of contact person at Whois also.

    All registered domains are listed in the domain zone files, for example, zone files for .com and .net TLDs are maintained by Verisign. But it's not easy to get access to them.
