Question who to get a domain name through?

who should i get a domain name through where my private info (name, address, phone number) are not going to show up under a whois search? like a company that masks that info with some general contact info for the domain name registrar company or something?
i was thinking about creating a domain name, and making a website and have it hosted....and was thinking of starting some kind of business which i would be using the website for, and didn't exactly want customers to be able to just do a whois search and get all my personal information. i signed up for a free microsoft office live site a while back, but then found out that it didn't mask your personal info at all.

GoDaddy.com, they are the best...although you end up paying a few more dollars for private registration.
