When you register a domain name, you have to provide a valid postal address, email account and phone number as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is visible to the public on WHOIS lookup websites as well, so anyone can check your info and a lot of people may not be pleased with this. As a consequence, lots of domain name registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the domain registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. Nowadays, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is amazingly easy if you’ve got a cloud web hosting. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll simply have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you wish to transfer a specific domain name to some other company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact info with only a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unsolicited persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is very easy if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. If the domain is registered through our company, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated package. In case a particular generic or country-code domain name supports Whois Privacy Protection, you’ll see a tiny logo on the right-hand side of that domain. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you’ll need to click on it. In the same way, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain during the account order process too, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we will offer you the opportunity to add it to any of your domain names later if you change your mind and decide to conceal your personal details from the general public after you have already created the account.
