When you register a domain, you are asked to give an authentic address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anyone can see your details and certain individuals may not be pleased with this. As a result, many companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Currently, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.
