When you register a domain, you are asked to supply a valid address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policies approved by ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. This info, however, is not kept only by the domain registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS lookup sites as well, so anybody can view your details and many people may not be satisfied with that fact. As a consequence, a lot of companies have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain registrant’s info and upon a WHOIS check, people will see 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. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be added, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support the service.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can quickly enable Whois Privacy Protection for any domain that you’ve registered through our company in case you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us. This can be achieved through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer the hosting account itself, so you won’t have to switch between different tools. In the same section where all your registered domain names will be listed, there will be an “Whois Privacy Protection” icon for each domain whose extension supports the service. The status of this icon will quickly let you know if the Whois Privacy Protection service is enabled for a specific domain or not and by clicking that icon you can add the service if you have not done so during the registration procedure. You will also be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain using that same icon and the change will take effect instantly.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you’ll be able to add Whois Privacy Protection to any of your domain names by taking several simple steps. If you register or transfer a domain during the account order process, you can get the service together with the domain name. In case you omit this step and you change your mind at a later point in time, you can activate the Whois Privacy Protection service from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, via which you can manage the entire semi-dedicated server account. This is also the place where you can turn on the Whois Privacy Protection for all other domains that you register through our company after signup. Renewing or deactivating the Whois Privacy Protection service is just as simple and will take just several clicks of the mouse.
