When you register a domain name, you have to give a genuine home address, email and phone as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anybody can view your information and a lot of people may not be happy with this. As a consequence, a lot of registrars have introduced 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 the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.
