When you register a domain, you are required to provide a genuine address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the public on WHOIS check sites too, so anyone can check your info and many people may not be OK with this. As a result, lots of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact information and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is stunningly easy if you have a Linux website hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your hosting account – you’ll simply 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 generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – in case you would like to transfer a particular domain name to another domain name registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact info with only several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Activating Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is stunningly easy in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain is registered through our company, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated package. In case a given generic or country-code top-level domain name is Whois Privacy Protection-eligible, you’ll notice a small icon on its right. To enable the service, you will need to click on it. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew or remove the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the signup procedure too, but since the service is optional, we will offer you the possibility to add it to any of your domain names at a later point in time in case you change your mind and choose to hide your private info from the general public after you’ve already created the semi-dedicated account.
