When you register a domain, you are obliged to provide a genuine postal address, email account and telephone number as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS websites too, so anyone can view your details and a lot of people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a consequence, plenty 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 those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Today, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is unbelievably easy in case you’ve got a cloud website hosting. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you’ll only need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it completely – in case you wish to transfer a given domain to some other domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact details with only several mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthorized persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you would like to conceal the contact info associated with your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account activation process or at any time afterwards through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a few clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company will be listed alphabetically. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the top-level domain name extensions that support the service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol on the right-hand side of each domain. In the same way, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it – in case you’d like to transfer a domain name to another company and you need the actual mailbox associated with the domain to be visible.
