When you register a domain name, you are asked to provide a genuine postal address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can see your details and a lot of people may not be OK with this. As a result, lots of domain name registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
