When you register a domain name, you have to supply an authentic home address, email and telephone number in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS check sites too, so anybody can check your information and some individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. As a result, a lot of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the very same service. Nowadays, most of the top-level domain names around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from us, you’ll be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains as long as their extensions support the service. You can register/transfer a domain name and enable Whois Privacy Protection during the account activation process or you can enable the service for any of your domains at any moment afterwards through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The procedure is surprisingly easy – after you sign in, you’ll have to go to the Registered Domains section where you will find a list of all the domain names that you have registered through our company. For each one of them you will notice an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will tell you if the service is enabled or not. By clicking it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can deactivate the service if it is currently active.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you would like to conceal the contact details associated with your domain name and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to activate our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order procedure or at any time later via our Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be added with several clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you have registered with our company will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for any of the TLD extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo next to each domain name. In the very same way, you can also renew the service or remove it – if you would like to transfer a domain to a different registrar and you need the real email associated with the domain to be visible.
