When you register a domain name, you are requested to give an authentic postal address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anybody can check your info and some individuals may not be satisfied with this. Consequently, plenty of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.
