When you register a domain name, you are requested to provide an authentic address, email account and telephone number as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check web sites too, so anybody can see your info and a lot of individuals may not be OK with that fact. As a result, lots of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Currently, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with us is exceptionally easy in case you have a Linux cloud package. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you’ll only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each top-level domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – if you’d like to transfer a certain domain name to a different registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact information with just several mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to hide the contact information for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order process or at any moment later through your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be added with a few mouse clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you have registered through us will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the TLD extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button on the right-hand side of each domain. In the same fashion, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or turn it off – if you would like to transfer a domain name to a different registrar and you need the real email account associated with the domain name to be visible.
