When you register a domain, you are asked to provide a genuine street address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS lookup websites too, so anybody can check your info and lots of individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. Consequently, numerous companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.
