When you register a domain name, you are asked to give an authentic address, email and phone number as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS websites too, so anybody can see your details and lots of individuals may not be happy with this. Consequently, many domain name registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. As of now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.
