When you register a domain, you are required to supply an authentic street address, email account and phone number as per the policies 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 visible to the general public on WHOIS check websites as well, so anybody can see your details and a lot of people may not be okay with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the domain 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 same service. Currently, 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 don’t support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of your domains as long as their extensions support this option. You can register/transfer a domain name and enable Whois Privacy Protection upon registration or you can enable the service for any of your domain names at any time afterwards through the Hepsia Control Panel. The procedure is surprisingly easy – after you log in, you will have to visit the Registered Domains section where you will see a list of all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company. For each of them you’ll see an “Whois Privacy Protection” button, which will let you know if the service is enabled or not. By clicking on it, you can either Whois Privacy Protect the domain name, or you can disable the service if it is currently enabled.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you would like to conceal the contact details for your domain name and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the signup 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 have registered through us will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the domain name extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button to the right of each domain name. In the exact same manner, you can also renew the service or disable it – in case you would like to transfer a domain name to some other domain registrar and you need the real email account associated with the domain to be visible.
