When you register a domain name, you are required to provide a valid street address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anyone can check your information and lots of individuals may not be OK with this. As a consequence, lots of domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Nowadays, 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 this option.
