Anonymous Domain Registration Service [Update: 24 April 2017]

Pirate Bay Founder Launches Anonymous Domain Registration Service

Does this sound anonymous to you?


With Njalla, customers don’t buy the domain names themselves, they let the company do it for them. This adds an extra layer of protection but also requires some trust.

A separate agreement grants the customer full usage rights to the domain. This also means that people are free to transfer it elsewhere if they want to.

“Think of us as your friendly drunk (but responsibly so) straw person that takes the blame for your expressions,” Njalla notes.

Perhaps I’m being overly suspicious but what is the basis for trusting Njalla?

I would feel better if Njalla only possessed a key that would decrypt (read authenticate) messages as arriving from the owner of some.domain.

Other than payment, what other interest do they have in an owner’s actual identity?

Perhaps I should bump them about that idea.


Update: On further inquiry, registration only requires an email or jabber contact point. You can handle being anonymous to Njalla at those points. So, more anonymous than I thought.
