When you register a domain name, you are obliged to give a genuine postal address, email and telephone number as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS websites as well, so anyone can check your info and a lot of people may not be happy with this. As a consequence, lots of domain 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 view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the same service. Now, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is exceptionally easy in case you’ve got a Linux cloud package. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you’ll simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, 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 deactivate it completely – in case you wish to transfer a certain domain to some other registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact info with just a few clicks and stop worrying that your information might be acquired by unsolicited people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to hide the contact details associated with your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account activation procedure or at any moment later via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with a few clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you’ve registered through our company will be listed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the TLD extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon on the right-hand side of each domain. In the very same fashion, you can also renew the service or shut it off – if you wish to transfer a domain to another registrar and you need the actual email address associated with the domain name to be visible.
