Whois Privacy Protection, at times also called WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact information of domain registrants on WHOIS check web sites. Without this service, the name, address and email of any domain registrant will be freely available. Providing fake info during the domain name registration procedure or changing the authentic information subsequently will just not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their ownership of the domain. The policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, require that the WHOIS info must be correct and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by registrar companies as an answer to the increasing concerns about potential identity fraud. If the service is activated, the registrar’s contact info will appear instead of the client’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code extensions that do not.
