Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the genuine contact information of domain name registrants on WHOIS check sites. Without such protection, the name, postal address and email account of any domain name registrant will be freely accessible. Supplying false information during the domain registration procedure or altering the authentic details at a later time will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS details must be valid and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as a response to the growing concerns about possible identity fraud. If the protection service is enabled, the domain name registrar’s contact details will be listed instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code extensions that do not.
