When you register a domain, you are obliged to give an authentic address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can check your info and lots of people may not be pleased with that fact. As a result, a lot of registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the exact same service. Today, most of the top-level domain names around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can effortlessly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you have registered through our company in case you have a cloud hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you administer the web hosting account itself, so you won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools. In the same section where all your registered domain names will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each and every domain whose extension supports the service. The status of that icon will quickly show you whether the Whois Privacy Protection service is activated for a certain domain name or not and by clicking that icon you can activate the service if you have not done so upon registration. Additionally, you’ll also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name using the very same icon and the update will take effect straight away.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to hide the contact info 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 procedure or at any moment afterwards via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be activated with a few clicks of the mouse from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you’ve registered through us will be listed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the top-level domain name extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign to the right of each domain. In the very same fashion, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or shut it off – if you’d like to transfer a domain to a different domain name registrar and you need the real email account associated with the domain to be visible.
