When you register a domain, you are requested to provide a genuine address, email and phone as per the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS websites too, so anybody can view your information and some people may not be delighted with this. As a result, many registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Currently, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.
