When you register a domain name, you are required to give a genuine street address, email and phone as per the policies adopted by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anyone can check your information and lots of individuals may not be delighted with this. As a result, numerous registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the client’s contact info 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 expressions refer to the very same service. As of now, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with us is extremely easy if you have a Linux website hosting package. You can do this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account – you’ll simply need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a particular domain to another domain name registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or business contact information with just several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you would like to hide the contact information for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the signup procedure or at any moment afterwards through our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be added 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 displayed in alphabetical order. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the Top-Level Domain extensions that support the service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol to the right of each domain name. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it – if you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar company and you need the real email address associated with the domain to be visible.
