Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the actual contact details of domain registrants on WHOIS lookup websites. Without this service, the personal name, home address and email of any domain name registrant will be openly available. Providing fake info during the domain registration process or altering the genuine details subsequently will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing his/her domain ownership rights. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS details must be correct and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain name registrars as a response to the rising concerns about possible identity fraud. If the service is active, the domain name registrar’s contact details will be listed instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS check. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code ones that do not.
