Whois Privacy Protection
What can you do to protect your personal data? What precisely is Whois Privacy Protection?
Whois Privacy Protection, occasionally also referred to as WHOIS or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that conceals the real contact details of domain owners on WHOIS check websites. Without this service, the personal name, home address and email of any domain registrant will be freely available. Supplying fake information during the domain registration process or changing the authentic details afterwards will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the domain name registrant losing their ownership of the domain name. The policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, demand that the WHOIS details must be correct and up to date all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain registrars as an answer to the growing concerns about possible identity theft. If the service is active, the domain registrar’s contact information will appear instead of the domain name registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are certain country-code ones that don’t.
