When you register a domain, you are required to provide a valid postal address, email account and phone number in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anyone can view your info and some individuals may not be pleased with this. As a result, plenty of registrar companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. As of now, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
