When you register a domain, you have to provide an authentic street address, email account and telephone as per 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 public on WHOIS web sites too, so anybody can see your information and a lot of individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. As a result, lots of registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.
