When you register a domain name, you have to provide a genuine postal address, email and phone number in accordance with the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS lookup web sites too, so anybody can see your info and many individuals may not be OK with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of registrar companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to one and the same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is surprisingly easy in case you’ve got a Linux hosting package. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you will just have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each generic or country-code 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 wish to transfer a particular domain name to some other registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact details with only a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking a couple of easy steps. If you order a registration or a transfer during the account order process, you can get the service along with the domain. If you omit this step and you think things over at a later time, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you can administer the entire semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domain names that you register through us after signing up. Renewing or disabling the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will require just several clicks.
