Typically information like personal e-mail, address can be displayed that were entered at time of registration which could be unwanted.
Thankfully, there’s a way to mask this by essentially behind an organisational address that ‘administrates’ the domain. Therefore their information comes up.
If someone wanted to contact you, for example, to subpoena you to attend court because you ran an illegal site. That organisation once going through due diligence would pass on that information. So you can hide behind most organisations and prying eyes unless it’s a legal matter.

What is a domain backorder?
When a domain is registered that you really want to register like cats.com or australia.com.au these domains may one day become available for registration.
A backorder allows you to set a pending registration on a domain and on the day of the expiry the domain will be registered under your name if it has expired.
A backorder is typically made when an inactive domain is nearing the end of the registration and is a last minute grab.
Why would I buy a domain on backorder?
Domains often keep there search ranking as there could be many links backlinking to the expiring domain. By registering the domain you can pass the link authority to your main website. However, this is getting on the topic of search engine optimisation itself.
What if I don't have an ABN to register a .au domain?
You run the risk of having your domain seized and deactivated by the registrar or having the domain possibly lawfully seized from you. As it is a requirement for an ABN to be entered upon registration, the ABN holder becomes the legal lessee of the domain, therefore, can request management of the domain even if they don’t specifically have access to the account it was registered under.
Domain is registered to my business. Should I still get domain privacy?
Yes, there are plenty of spammers that use the registrar lookup to obtain business e-mail addresses. Typically people who have their e-mail listed under their domain will have more spam in their inbox.
