When you register a domain name, you are requested to provide an authentic postal address, email account and phone in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup web sites too, so anyone can check your info and lots of individuals may not be OK with this. Consequently, a lot of companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view 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 terms refer to the same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.
