Whois Privacy Protection
What exactly can you do to protect your personal information? What precisely is Whois Privacy Protection?
When you register a domain name, you are asked to provide a genuine home address, email account and phone in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can see your information and some people may not be comfortable with this. As a consequence, lots of companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.
