When you register a domain, you have to provide an authentic address, email account and phone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup web sites as well, so anyone can check your details and certain individuals may not be happy with that fact. As a consequence, many domain registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s contact info and upon a WHOIS check, 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 Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is surprisingly easy if you have a cloud website hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you’ll only have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each TLD 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 – if you would like to transfer a certain domain to another registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact details with only a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unauthorized persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to order a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by completing several easy steps. If you register or transfer a domain name during the account order procedure, you can get the service along with the domain. In case you omit this step and you think things over at a later point in time, you can enable the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, through which you can administer the whole semi-dedicated account. This is also the place where you can enable Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through us after signup. Renewing or removing the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will take only a couple of clicks.
