WHOIS Privacy applies to international domains (for example, but not limited to: .com, .info, .net, .org, …). When registering a domain, the international umbrella organization ICANN requires personal information from the registrant, including full name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. After registering the domain, the registrant’s data is visible to the public through WHOIS searches. Among others, this information is available to marketers and spammers. We don’t always want to share our data with everyone, do we? Sometimes you do not want to associate your webpage with your name to protect your work or privacy.
