Whois Privacy Protection, occasionally also referred to as WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the authentic contact details of domain registrants on WHOIS check sites. Without this service, the personal name, postal address and email account of any domain name owner will be freely accessible. Supplying false information during the domain registration process or altering the real details subsequently will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing his/her ownership rights. The policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), require that the WHOIS information must be valid and up to date at all times. The Whois Privacy Protection service was introduced by domain registrars as an answer to the increasing concerns for possible identity theft. If the protection service is activated, the registrar company’s contact info will be shown instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code extensions that do not.
