I`m a newbie to the forum. I don`t know if there is a solution to my problem, but if there is I figure someone on here would have suggestions.
I have been asked to start giving motivational speeches to colleges this fall. Instead of doing this on the side, I have decided to make it an official business. I am in the process of developing my website but have run into a couple of issues.
I know there is no certainty but how can I protect myself regarding online stalkers/psychos?
1. As I will be running the site from my home, how do I deal with the Whois issue? I don`t want my home address to be easily visible, but I also don`t want godaddy to own my domain. How do I get around this? Should I switch to a different host or do all own your domain when you try to make it private?
2. Also, when corresponding with potential clients, will they be able to pinpoint my exact IP address, and as a result my exact location?
Right now, I will have an online form for potential clients to request me. I haven`t password protected it because it would reduce my client base to those I have directly marketed to...but now I don`t know...
As a young female, any suggestions would be so appreciated. A female speaker on the college circuit had a problem with stalkers last year and I`m trying to be proactive. I know this isn`t a typical question, but I need suggestions. Thanks!
