According to the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact information a domain name is registered with must be valid and up to date all the time. Furthermore, this information is publicly visible on WHOIS sites and while this may be okay for organizations, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because anybody can see their names and their personal home and email addresses, particularly in an age when identity fraud is not that atypical. For this reason, domain registrars have come up with a service that conceals the details of their customers without changing them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. In case it is activated, people will see the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they do a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain name extensions, but it is still impossible to conceal your private details with certain country-code ones.
