When you register a domain, you are asked to supply an authentic address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anyone can view your info and many individuals may not be okay with that fact. As a consequence, numerous domain registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.
