Whois Privacy Protection, at times also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the actual contact details of domain name owners on WHOIS check websites. Without such protection, the personal name, address and email of any domain name owner will be openly visible. Providing false info during the registration procedure or altering the genuine details afterwards will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS info must be valid and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrar companies as an answer to the arising concerns about possible identity theft. If the service is active, the domain registrar’s contact information will be shown instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code extensions that do not.
