    Use private nameservers.

    Did you register your domain name through the host?

    If so, get it moved away to an independent registrar.

    OK. If you are not a reseller then, the only thing that is giving it away is the nameservers?

    You could use Godaddy's DNS and point to the IP of the host.

    Other than that if it is very important to hide the host name, move to a host that uses more generic sounding nameservers (different name to their company name) or buy a reseller account that will give you private nameserver, e.g. your own domain name.

    Thanks to uncle google anyone will be able to know where and who is your provider... private name servers.will do help but not much....you can always whois your ip and it will show you the provider name( Registry Whois-OrgID and OrgName )..unless your provider use a priviate names or your ip registered under the name of the data center...

    I believe you could either get private nameservers or whois protection.

    Just review carefully the options in your GoDaddy account. There is one that allows you to turn the whois information to privacy.

    Why do you want to hide who your using, if customers where not happy with the service then they would go somewhere else in the first place.

    Are you using a reseller account or a normal shared hosting account?

    If you are using shared hosting, the only way for you is to either upgrade to a reseller hosting (with private nameservers) or use a host with anonymous nameservers.
    I dont think whois protection will help as the nameservers is not covered.

    You can take a dedicated ip and ask for a reverse dns on your own domain. However still someone can detect your hosting provider (datacenter) from the ip block.

    What it comes down to - is if somebody wants to know who your host is, generally they can find out if they put in the work. Most users are not going to go through the trouble of finding this out.

    It's not likely to be free to hide your hosting provider because you will either have to upgrade to a reseller plan (more money) or pay another service to use their NameServers (more money).

    Might I ask why you want to hide this so badly?

    Might as well use the registrar's DNS, if they provide it, since you can't hide their name!

    Good point - for some reason I didn't think of this... Generally I've never used the DNS servers at my registrars.
