Whois Privacy Protection, at times also referred to as Privacy or Whois Privacy Protection, is a service that hides the genuine contact info of domain name owners on WHOIS web sites. Without such protection, the name, home address and email of any domain name registrant will be openly available. Supplying fake info during the domain registration procedure or changing the authentic details at a later time will simply not work, as doing such a thing may result in the registrant losing his/her domain ownership rights. The policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), demand that the WHOIS details must be valid and accurate all the time. The Whois Privacy Protection service was launched by domain name registrars as an answer to the increasing concerns about possible identity fraud. If the service is activated, the registrar’s contact information will be listed instead of the registrant’s upon a WHOIS lookup. Most domain names support the Whois Privacy Protection service, although there are some country-code extensions that don’t.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is unbelievably easy if you have a cloud website hosting. You can achieve this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you will simply have to go to 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 domain that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you’d like to transfer a specific domain to some other registrar. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact information with only several clicks and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated individuals.

This is also the place where you can activate Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through us after signup. Renewing or deactivating the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as easy and will take only a couple of clicks.
