When you register a domain, you are required to provide a genuine address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup websites too, so anybody can view your details and lots of people may not be satisfied with this. As a result, numerous domain registrars have come up with the so-called ID Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as WHOIS Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the globe allow ID Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.
