Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the actual contact details of domain owners on WHOIS lookup websites. Without this service, the personal name, home address and email account of any domain registrant will be publicly accessible. Supplying fake info during the registration process or changing the authentic info subsequently will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing his/her ownership of the domain name. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS details must be correct and up to date all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain name registrars as a response to the growing concerns about potential identity theft. If the service is enabled, the domain registrar’s contact details will appear instead of the domain registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code ones that do not.
