When you register a domain, you are required to provide an authentic street address, email account and telephone as per the policy approved by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). This information, though, is not kept only by the registrar company, but is available to the general public on WHOIS web sites as well, so anyone can view your information and a lot of people may not be okay with this. As a consequence, lots of domain registrars have launched the so-called Whois Privacy Protection service, which conceals the domain name registrant’s details and upon a WHOIS check, people will view the details of the registrar company, not those of the domain owner. This service is also known as Whois Privacy Protection or Privacy Protection, but all these expressions refer to the same service. At the moment, most of the TLDs around the globe allow Whois Privacy Protection to be activated, but there are still country-specific extensions that don’t support this option.

Whois Privacy Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve ordered a Linux cloud web hosting from our company and you have registered one or more domains under your account, you will be able to enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of them with ease and to keep your private information secure. Of course, this can be done only with the TLD extensions that support this option. In your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you’ll find an “Whois Privacy Protection” sign to the right of each of your domain names. Its colour will show you if a domain name is protected or not and in the second case, you can enable Whois Privacy Protection with just several clicks. Thus, you can safeguard your private info even if you have not added the Whois Privacy Protection service during the signup procedure. You will be able to renew or to disable the Whois Privacy Protection service for any of your domains just as easily.

Whois Privacy Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you want to conceal the contact details for your domain name and you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to add our Whois Privacy Protection service either upon registration or at any time later via our Hepsia Control Panel. This service is optional and can be activated with several clicks of the mouse from the Control Panel’s Registered Domains section where all the domain names that you have registered through our company will be displayed in alphabetical order. You can enable Whois Privacy Protection for any of the Top-Level Domain extensions that support this service by simply clicking the “Whois Privacy Protection” logo next to each domain. In the exact same fashion, you can also renew the service or shut it off – if you want to transfer a domain name to another registrar and you need the actual email associated with the domain to be visible.
