When you register a domain, you are asked to give a genuine postal address, email and telephone number as per the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check sites too, so anyone can view your information and some individuals may not be OK with this. As a consequence, a lot of companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact 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 don’t support this option.
