When you register a domain, you have to give an authentic postal address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS web sites too, so anyone can see your information and lots of people may not be comfortable with that fact. As a result, plenty of registrar companies have come up with 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 known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the very same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.
