Whois Privacy Protection, at times also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the genuine contact info of domain registrants on WHOIS check web sites. Without protection, the name, home address and email of any domain name registrant will be openly accessible. Providing fake details during the domain registration procedure or changing the real information at a later time will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing his/her ownership of the domain name. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS details must be correct and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as a response to the arising concerns for possible identity theft. If the protection service is enabled, the registrar company’s contact details will show up instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code extensions that do not.
