This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Do you want to be anonymous because you don't want to ever be associated to it? e.g. its a porn site... you like the profit but it would not look good to your wife/family/neighbors. Or are you hoping to create a startup site that you want on the hush hush or don't want your current boss to know about? Or are you simply trying to avoid the spam and domain renewal scams etc.? – scunliffe Jul 11 '11 at 19:19

There is no way to be 100% anonymous. Even if your personal information is hidden through private registration it is still captured by the registrar and your web host. You can make it slightly more difficult by using private registration and using companies outside of the US but you information is always available if someone wants it bad enough.
