When you register a domain name, you are obliged to supply a valid address, email and telephone number as per the policies adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, however, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is accessible to the general public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anybody can check your details and a lot of individuals may not be satisfied with that fact. As a result, numerous registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which hides the registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar, not the domain owner’s. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. Now, most of the Top-Level Domains around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Shared Hosting

Enabling the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through us is incredibly easy in case you have a shared plan. You can do this through the same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you administer your web hosting account – you will only have to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domain names will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, which will be available for each generic or country-code Top-Level Domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or deactivate it completely – if you wish to transfer a given domain name to another company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your personal or corporate contact info with only several clicks and stop worrying that your details might be acquired by unauthorized people.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you would like to hide the contact information associated with your domain and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account activation procedure or at any time later via your Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with several clicks from the Registered Domains section of the Control Panel where all the domains that you have registered with our company will be listed alphabetically. You can activate Whois Privacy Protection for any of the extensions that support the service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” button next to each domain. In the exact same manner, you can also renew the service or turn it off – in case you would like to transfer a domain name to a different company and you need the real email account associated with the domain to be visible.
