When you register a domain, you are obliged to provide an authentic home address, email and phone in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS lookup web sites as well, so anyone can see your info and many people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a result, lots of domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is incredibly easy in case you have a cloud hosting service. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account – you’ll simply have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each top-level domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it altogether – if you’d like to transfer a specific domain to a different company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact details with just several mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unsolicited persons.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
Activating Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is exceptionally easy if you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. As long as the domain name is registered through us, it will be listed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with every semi-dedicated plan. If a specific generic or country-code domain supports Whois Privacy Protection, you’ll see a mini sign on its right. To activate the Whois Privacy Protection service, you’ll have to click on it. In the same manner, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for a domain name during the account order process too, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we’ll offer you the chance to add it to any of your domain names at a later time if you think things over and decide to hide your private information from the public eye after you’ve already created the account.
