When you register a domain, you need to supply a genuine home address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anyone can view your details and certain individuals may not be delighted with this. Consequently, lots of companies have launched the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Currently, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.
