    Entering fake address during domain registration

    All domain registrars companies ask you for your real name, address, phone which immediately become available for everybody( whois service )

    Can I lose domain in future if I will provide fake address?

    If you want to hide your details just use whois

    ICANN requires that all information in your registration be valid.
    Check ICANN Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy rules

    ICANN has the power to take a domain from you and give it to somebody else.

    Use correct data

    Check this

    http://www.icann.org/en/help/dispute-resolution#whois

    "Inaccurate Whois Data
    If you are trying to resolve a complaint related to inaccurate WHOIS data
    If you have an inquiry regarding incorrect WHOIS data, please submit a "WHOIS Data Problem Report" using the form at http://wdprs.internic.net/.

    Your report will be forwarded to the sponsoring registrar, who must take reasonable steps to investigate and correct inaccurate data."

    I agree with GoogleLover, to avoid problems better to use real details from the beginning

    You have put here a common but important issue. I think there should be fruitful discussion on it. We usually want to have a website either for meeting business purpose or to share our views and opinions with others. Main role of a website is to transfer information. You got a domain and after that you spent a lot of time, money and energy to promote it. It got the Page rank 10 or so on. Unfortunately one day you saw that you could not access your admin status. In this situation think you used fake name and address. How would you be able to contact the providers? Therefore, it will not be wise to use fake name and false address while getting domain name and hosting service.

    Yes, it is possible to hide your information on WHOIS. Just get the private registration from your domain registrar. Through this you can hide your personal information. After that check details at a WHOIS service to know whether your registration is private or not.
