When you register a domain name, you are required to provide a valid street address, email account and phone number as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites as well, so anybody can see your details and certain individuals may not be comfortable with that fact. As a result, numerous registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see 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 the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.
