In accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the contact info a domain is registered with must be correct and up to date all the time. In addition, this info is publicly accessible on WHOIS web sites and while this may be OK for corporations, it may not be very convenient for individuals, because everybody can view their names and their personal email and street addresses, all the more so in an age when identity fraud is not that unusual. Because of this, registrars have launched a service that conceals the details of their customers without altering them. The service is called Whois Privacy Protection. If it is enabled, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner, if they make a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic domain name extensions, but it is still impossible to hide your details with certain country-code ones.
