When you register a domain name, you are asked to supply an authentic postal address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anybody can view your info and a lot of people may not be delighted with this. As a consequence, plenty of companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.
