When you register a domain, you are requested to supply a valid address, email account and phone in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anybody can view your information and lots of people may not be happy with that fact. Consequently, plenty of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s 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 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 globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.
