In accordance with the policies approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the contact info a domain is registered with must be valid and accurate all the time. Besides, this information is openly visible on WHOIS websites and while this may be okay for firms, it may not be very acceptable for individuals, because anyone can view their names and their personal street and email addresses, particularly in times when identity theft isn’t that unusual. This is the reason why registrars have launched a service that hides the details of their clients without modifying them. The service is referred to as Whois Privacy Protection. In case it’s enabled, people will view the details of the registrar, not those of the domain owner, if they perform a WHOIS search. The Whois Privacy Protection service is supported by all generic TLD extensions, but it’s still impossible to conceal your personal information with some country-code ones.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered with us is unbelievably easy in case you have a Linux cloud website hosting. You can do this through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you will only need to go to the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click the “Whois Privacy Protection” icon, which will be available for each domain that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the service or disable it altogether – if you want to transfer a given domain to some other registrar company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can conceal your private or business contact information with just several clicks of the mouse and stop worrying that your details might be obtained by unsolicited persons.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you want to conceal the contact details associated with your domain name and you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to enable our Whois Privacy Protection service either during the account activation procedure or at any moment later via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The service is optional and can be enabled with several clicks from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domains that you’ve registered with our company will be listed alphabetically. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the extensions that support this service by simply clicking on the “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol next to each domain name. In the exact same way, you can also renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or remove it – if you would like to transfer a domain to some other registrar company and you need the actual email associated with the domain name to be visible.
