When you register a domain, you have to supply a valid postal address, email account and phone in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can view your info and many people may not be comfortable with this. As a result, a lot of registrar companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s info 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 Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the exact same service. Now, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is unbelievably easy if you have a Linux cloud website hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web hosting account – you will simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be listed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it altogether – in case you’d like to transfer a certain domain name to a different registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact details with only a few clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthenticated people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to conceal the contact information for your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the registration process or at any moment afterwards through our Hepsia Control Panel. The service is optional and can be added with a couple of clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domains that you’ve registered with us will be displayed alphabetically. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button to the right of each domain name. In the same fashion, you can also renew the service or disable it – if you wish to transfer a domain to some other registrar company and you need the real mailbox associated with the domain to be visible.
