Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the actual contact details of domain name owners on WHOIS check web sites. Without this service, the personal name, address and email account of any domain name registrant will be openly visible. Supplying fake details during the domain name registration procedure or altering the real details later will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, require that the WHOIS information must be valid and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrar companies as an answer to the growing concerns about potential identity theft. If the protection service is activated, the domain registrar’s contact info will be displayed instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code ones that don’t.
