When you register a domain, you need to supply a valid street address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anyone can check your details and many people may not be pleased with that fact. As a consequence, many companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
