When you register a domain name, you are required to give a valid address, email and telephone number as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS lookup websites too, so anyone can see your information and lots of individuals may not be delighted with this. Consequently, numerous companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.
