When you register a domain, you are asked to supply an authentic address, email and phone number in accordance with the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS sites as well, so anyone can check your info and many people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a consequence, numerous domain name registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.
