According to the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain name is registered with must be correct and up to date at all times. Plus, this information is freely available on WHOIS lookup websites and while this may be okay for companies, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because everybody can see their names and their personal street and email addresses, all the more so in an age when identity fraud is not that unusual. For this reason, domain registrars have come up with a service that conceals the details of their customers without modifying them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it’s enabled, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not the domain owner’s, if they make a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your information with some country-code ones.
