When you register a domain name, you have to provide an authentic address, email account and phone in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check sites too, so anyone can check your information and a lot of people may not be delighted with this. As a result, numerous registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain name registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms 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 activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with our company is very easy if you have a Linux hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you will 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 Top-Level Domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it completely – if you’d like to transfer a specific domain to another domain registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with just a couple of clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’d like to hide the contact details associated with your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to activate our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order process or at any time afterwards via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be enabled with a few mouse clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you have registered through our company will be listed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the TLD 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 manner, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it – in case you want to transfer a domain name to another company and you need the real mailbox associated with the domain name to be visible.
