When you register a domain name, you need to supply a genuine address, email account and telephone number as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anybody can view your details and many people may not be comfortable with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.
