When you register a domain, you are asked to provide an authentic home address, email account and telephone as per the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, however, is not kept only by the registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anyone can see your info and many individuals may not be pleased with that fact. Consequently, lots of registrar companies have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s contact info and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will view the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. At the moment, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is amazingly easy if you have a cloud hosting. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the hosting account – you’ll simply have to visit 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 gTLD or ccTLD 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 certain domain name to another domain registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or business contact information with just a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you would like to conceal the contact details for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the signup process or at any time afterwards through your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be enabled with a few clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domains that you have registered with us will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain name extensions that support the service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo on the right-hand side of each domain. In the very same manner, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or shut it off – in case you would like to transfer a domain name to some other registrar and you need the actual email address associated with the domain name to be visible.
