Whois Privacy Protection, at times also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact info of domain name owners on WHOIS check web sites. Without protection, the personal name, postal address and email of any domain owner will be openly accessible. Giving false information during the domain name registration procedure or changing the authentic info later will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain registrant losing his/her ownership of the domain. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS information must be correct and accurate at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain name registrars as a response to the arising concerns for possible identity fraud. If the service is activated, the domain name registrar’s contact info will be displayed instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domains support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code ones that don’t.
