When you register a domain, you are asked to provide a genuine postal address, email and telephone as per the policies 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 public on WHOIS check websites too, so anyone can see your details and some people may not be comfortable with that fact. As a result, plenty of registrars have come up with 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 registrar company, not the domain owner’s. This service is also popular as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these names refer to the very same service. Nowadays, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this service.
Whois Privacy Protection in Hosting
Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain name registered through our company is unbelievably easy if you’ve got a hosting. You can accomplish this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage the web hosting account – you will just have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo, which will be available for each domain name that supports the Whois Privacy Protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or deactivate it completely – if you wish to transfer a specific domain name to some other domain registrar. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your personal or business contact information with only a couple of mouse clicks and stop worrying that your info might be acquired by unauthenticated people.
Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
Ordering Whois Privacy Protection for any domain is stunningly easy in case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server. If the domain is registered with us, it will be displayed in the Registered Domains section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is included with each and every semi-dedicated package. If a specific generic or country-code top-level domain name supports Whois Privacy Protection, you will notice a tiny symbol to the right of that domain. To enable the Whois Privacy Protection service, you will need to click on it. In the same fashion, you can also renew or deactivate the service. You can order Whois Privacy Protection for a domain during the account activation process as well, but since the Whois Privacy Protection service is optional, we will offer you the opportunity to add it to any of your domains at a later point in time if you change your mind and decide to conceal your personal information from the general public after you have already created the account.
