When you register a domain name, you are required to give an authentic postal address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check websites too, so anybody can view your information and lots of people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a consequence, lots of domain name registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Currently, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.
