When you register a domain, you are required to supply a valid postal address, email account and telephone in accordance with the policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the domain name registrar, but is available to the general public on WHOIS web sites too, so anybody can see your details and a lot of people may not be comfortable with this. As a result, lots of registrar companies have introduced the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the client’s details and upon a WHOIS lookup, people will see the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Privacy Protection or Whois Privacy Protection, but all these terms refer to the exact same service. At the moment, most of the Top-Level Domains around the world allow Whois Privacy Protection to be enabled, but there are still country-code extensions that do not support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Hosting

Activating the Whois Privacy Protection service for any domain registered through our company is really easy in case you have a Linux cloud hosting. You can accomplish this through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, via which you manage your hosting account – you will simply have to visit the Registered Domains section where all your domains will be displayed and to click on the “Whois Privacy Protection” sign, which will be available for each generic or country-code TLD that supports the protection service. This is also the place where you can renew the Whois Privacy Protection service or disable it altogether – in case you want to transfer a certain domain to a different company. With our Whois Privacy Protection service, you can hide your private or corporate contact info with only a few clicks and stop worrying that your info might be obtained by unauthorized individuals.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you register a domain under it, you can activate our Whois Privacy Protection service effortlessly. This takes only a few clicks of the mouse in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Registered Domains section, through which you manage everything associated with your semi-dedicated account. This is where you can see all your domains and for each one of them you will see an “Whois Privacy Protection” symbol, using which you can order, renew or deactivate the service. Of course, this will be possible only with generic and country-specific Top-Level Domain extensions that support this option and you will be able to see this beforehand, so you will not end up requesting a service that we cannot provide.
