When you register a domain name, you have to give an authentic home address, email account and phone as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites too, so anybody can view your information and many individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. Consequently, numerous registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
