When you register a domain, you are required to provide a valid postal address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policy adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check websites too, so anyone can see your details and lots of people may not be pleased with that fact. As a consequence, many domain name registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view 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 same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is stunningly easy in case you have a cloud web hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your hosting account – you’ll only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click 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 service or disable it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a given domain name to some other domain name registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact info with only a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unauthorized persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to conceal the contact information for your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account activation process or at any moment afterwards through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be enabled with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domains that you’ve registered with our company will be displayed alphabetically. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo to the right of each domain. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew the service or turn it off – in case you’d like to transfer a domain name to another registrar and you need the actual email account associated with the domain name to be visible.
