When you register a domain name, you need to supply a valid home address, email account and phone number as per the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is accessible to the public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can check your information and some individuals may not be comfortable with this. As a consequence, numerous registrars have come up with the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s contact information and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the same service. Currently, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support the service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through us is very easy if you’ve got a cloud website hosting plan. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your hosting account – you’ll simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be listed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each generic or country-code domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – if you want to transfer a given domain to a different company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or corporate contact information with just a few mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthorized people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to conceal the contact details associated with your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account order procedure or at any moment afterwards via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be enabled with a couple of mouse clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you’ve registered with us will be listed in alphabetical order. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the top-level domain name extensions that support the service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign on the right-hand side of each domain. In the very same way, you can also renew the service or deactivate it – if you wish to transfer a domain to another registrar and you need the real mailbox associated with the domain to be visible.
