When you register a domain, you have to supply an authentic postal address, email and phone number in accordance with the policy approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar, but is visible to the general public on WHOIS sites as well, so anyone can check your information and some people may not be happy with this. Consequently, plenty of domain registrars have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the domain registrant’s information and upon a WHOIS check, people will see the details of the registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also called Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to one and the same service. Today, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that don’t support this option.
Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting
Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered with our company is very easy if you’ve got a Linux hosting. You can achieve this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your web 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” icon, 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 disable it altogether – in case you would like to transfer a given domain to a different company. With the Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact details with just a couple of clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your information might be obtained by unauthenticated people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’d like to conceal the contact info associated with your domain and you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the registration procedure or at any moment later via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. This service is optional and can be enabled with several mouse clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you have registered with us will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the top-level domain name extensions that support the service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo to the right of each domain name. In the exact same manner, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or remove it – if you’d like to transfer a domain to some other domain name registrar and you need the real email associated with the domain name to be visible.
