Does anyone have experience with .ly domain names? I'd love one for my personal site but have ran into some issues. So I am an American and .ly domains are owned by the country of Libya. That was the first red flag for me. The second is that there is no anonymous registration. The faq says:
"We don’t have this service included at the time being, but we are working to add it soon.
However, you do not have to supply a private address or phone number for the contact persons registered on the domain. It is sufficient to supply contact information for the organisation, as long as the contact person can be reached by email."
The domain name I have in mind would be perfect for my personal site but i'm wary of the no anonymous registration. Does anyone have any advice on what I can do to acquire a .ly domain name as safely as possible? Or should I completely avoid it? Thanks for your help.
