When you register a domain name, you have to supply an authentic street address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the public on WHOIS web sites too, so anyone can check your info and certain individuals may not be delighted with this. As a consequence, lots of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. As of now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is very easy in case you’ve got a cloud website hosting package. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you’ll only have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, 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 service or disable it completely – if you’d like to transfer a particular domain name to some other company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact details with only a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unsolicited individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you register a domain name under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service without effort. This requires just several clicks in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer everything related to your semi-dedicated hosting account. This is where you can see all your domains and for each of them you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, using which you can activate, renew or remove the service. Of course, this can be done only with generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that are Whois Privacy Protection-eligible and you’ll be able to see this in advance, so that you won’t end up purchasing a service that we cannot provide.
