When you register a domain name, you are obliged to provide a valid address, email account and telephone number in accordance with the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This info, though, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check sites as well, so anyone can check your info and a lot of individuals may not be okay with this. Consequently, numerous companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see 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 exact same service. As of now, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Website Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is incredibly easy in case you have a Linux website hosting. You can do this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will just need to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will be available for each domain name that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – if you would like to transfer a given domain name to some other domain registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact info with only several clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unsolicited people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain name is really easy in case you have a semi-dedicated server. If the domain name is registered with us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with every semi-dedicated plan. In case a particular generic or country-code top-level domain name supports Whois Privacy Protection, you will notice a tiny symbol on the right-hand side of that domain. To activate the service, you will need to click on it. In the same fashion, you can also renew or disable the service. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for a domain during the registration procedure too, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we will give you the opportunity to add it to any of your domains at a later time in case you think things over and opt to conceal your private info from the public eye after you’ve already ordered the semi-dedicated account.
