Whois Privacy Protection, occasionally also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact information of domain name registrants on WHOIS check sites. Without this service, the personal name, address and email of any domain name registrant will be openly available. Giving false details upon registration or altering the genuine details afterwards will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their ownership rights. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS information must be valid and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain name registrars as an answer to the increasing concerns about possible identity fraud. If the service is enabled, the domain name 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.
