Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the authentic contact details of domain name registrants on WHOIS websites. Without protection, the name, street address and email of any domain name registrant will be publicly visible. Supplying fake information during the domain name registration process or changing the authentic details at a later time will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their domain name ownership rights. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS info must be correct and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrars as a response to the rising concerns about possible identity fraud. If the service is active, the domain registrar’s contact info will be listed instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code extensions that do not.
