Whois Privacy Protection, sometimes also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the genuine contact information of domain registrants on WHOIS websites. Without this service, the name, address and email of any domain name registrant will be publicly accessible. Giving false information during the domain name registration procedure or changing the authentic info at a later time will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing their domain ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS info must be correct and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as an answer to the rising concerns for potential identity theft. If the service is activated, the domain registrar’s contact information will show up instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code ones that don’t.
