When you register a domain name, your personal and/or company name, address, phone number and other contact details are made available to anyone via WHOIS domain public directory (WHOIS is the public database of people and organizations, who have registered a domain name). Every registrar's contact details are made publicly available to anyone due to ICANN regulations (the international governing body of Internet domain names).
As a solution to protect your privacy, all domain name registrations will conceal your domain's public WHOIS record, containing your actual contact and personal information, from common harassments such as spammers, scammers, stalkers, telemarketers, identity thieves and any other third parties who might be using your personal and contact information without your consent.
