Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the real contact details of domain owners on WHOIS check web sites. Without protection, the name, home address and email account of any domain registrant will be publicly available. Supplying false info during the registration procedure or altering the real info later will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing his/her domain name ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS details must be valid and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by registrars as an answer to the arising concerns about potential identity fraud. If the protection service is activated, the domain registrar’s contact details will be displayed instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, even though there are certain country-code extensions that do not.
