Q: Shouldn't my domain be registered under MY name?
I noticed my domain is not registered under my own name, why is that? How do I change it?
We don't register domains under the artists name for three reasons:
1. TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY.
If it is registered in your name, your personal information is available to the entire world via a "whois" search.
2. To prevent spammers from 'tricking' you into moving your domain to another company.
Much like the old 'slamming' techniques in the long-distance wars, domains are often 'slammed' by unsuspecting registrants. It is a real pain on our end to try to sort that out for our clients, even though it isn't our fault when it happens.
3. To save you money by including the domain with your service.
Having said all of this, if you ever leave our service, we will happily transfer the domain into an account that you control under your name. More information about this is included in section 9.2 of our terms of service at http://faso.com/tos
