When you register a domain, you are required to give a valid address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anyone can view your info and certain individuals may not be comfortable with this. As a consequence, numerous companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.
