When you register a domain name, you are asked to provide a valid street address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anyone can view your information and some individuals may not be pleased with that fact. As a result, lots of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact info 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. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
