Can you guys help to let me know, what is domain privacy?

Domain privacy (often called Whois privacy) is a service offered by a number of domain name registrars.
  • The domain registrant means the end-user, who wants to register their brand name or domain name for a website.
  • Registrars issue domain name licenses to registrants. Registrars can process new registrations and renewals because they have direct access to the domain registry, as well as update registrant contact details in the database.
  • Domain resellers are the businesses that provide domain name registration services to the public but are not accredited registrars. Resellers buy large amounts of domain extensions and manage domain name records for their customers through an interface.

Email Auto-Responder delivers messages on your behalf when you are not working.
It enables you to schedule messages for anyone to be sent at any-time.
Just prepare a message, schedule it as per the recipients and time, and it will be sent automatically in your absence. That means, it delivers your best content, in the best possible order and frequency, to every new reader who finds you.

The phrase "autoresponder" these days generally refers to anything that automatically responds to an email message. Auto' means 'Self' and 'responder' means 'reverting', thus an Autoresponder is a computer program which automatically reverts on the e-mails sent to it.
You can set autoresponder in two ways:
1. Server-side: The user installs the autoresponder script on his server and manages everything on his own.
2. Outsourced ASP - In this model, the user spends a monthly fee to the company which gives them the autoresponder service. It is a bit easier choice, as the former one requires some technical skills.

Can you guys help to let me know, what is domain privacy?

Every domain name has public information attached to it about the owner of the domain name. The name, email address, phone number, and even home address of the owner is openly available online in the WHOIS database.
The rules and laws surrounding domain names require every domain name owner to reveal their contact information. But in most cases, some people wouldn't want their personal contact information available to the public.
Because scammers, hackers, and anyone else can see it. For this domain owner needs to take Domain Privacy service. Domain Privacy is a service allows you to hide your personal contact information from the public WHOIS database and replace it with generic contact information instead.
