What is a WHOIS database?
The WHOIS database contains listings of all registered domain names on the internet. It is maintained by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and is regularly updated.
The database can be used to obtain information and records of domain names, like the registration and expiration date, the current domain registrar, the current name servers, and often even personal contact information of the domain name owner.
What is WHOIS Privacy?
When you register a domain name, you have to provide personal information, such as your name, address, phone number, and email.
The information is stored as a public WHOIS database listing that anyone can find using a WHOIS domain lookup. That is unless your domain is registered in the EU (then you’re protected by the GDPR), or has its details hidden using WHOIS Privacy Protection service.
WHOIS Privacy is a service that makes your data private in the WHOIS database listing, securing your personal details by replacing them with the details of a proxy server. Clicks2 Host offers this service, which you can easily activate through the CPanel
