When you register a domain, you are obliged to supply a genuine home address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS check sites too, so anybody can view your information and some individuals may not be happy with that fact. Consequently, plenty of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Web Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is very easy in case you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting service. You can accomplish this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you’ll simply have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – in case you want to transfer a particular domain name to another registrar company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or corporate contact details with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’d like to hide the contact information for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order process or at any time later through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a couple of mouse clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you have registered with our company will be listed alphabetically. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” button next to each domain. In the exact same manner, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or turn it off – if you wish to transfer a domain to a different domain registrar and you need the actual email address associated with the domain name to be visible.
