Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the authentic contact information of domain registrants on WHOIS check sites. Without such protection, the personal name, address and email of any domain owner will be freely accessible. Giving false details during the domain registration process or altering the authentic information at a later time will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, require that the WHOIS info must be correct and up to date all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain name registrars as a response to the increasing concerns for potential identity theft. If the service is active, the registrar’s contact info will be shown instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code ones that don’t.
